He has an excellent point. The theaters here in Asheville NC don’t have any restrictions on what theaters beer and wine are taken into.

Carmike is the worst theater chain around after Frank Theaters.

Al, do you know if they undivided the 3 large auditoriums that had been divided? I suspect they are going to add more. Very strange for AMC to purchase a small theater.

Did they ever fix the 3 auditoriums that had damage from Sandy?

Is Stomp not playing? Are they remodeling the theater?

It appears that demolition of this theater has started. The box office is intact, but all the outer and inner doors are gone and it looks like they are also removing the seats. Very sad this theater could have come back big time when the mall takes off if a new chain like AMC invested money in it and converted it to digital and one of their cinema and dines.

Very glad Disney had the world premiere of Into The Woods here at the Ziegfeld and not at the El Capitan in CA. It seems to have been on Dec 8

I hate Carmike Cinemas. I knew they would ruin this theater when they took over.

If my memory serves correct, this theater had 70MM projection and showed many films in 70MM. Howard Haas can you confirm this?

Mikeoaklandpark commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Nov 8, 2014 at 4:03 pm

Everybody going enjoy and be grateful you can see it at the Ziegfeld in 70mm. Where I live in Asheville NC there is no theater that has ever been equipped to show 70MM. What a bummer.

Mikeoaklandpark commented about Savoia Theatre on Nov 2, 2014 at 4:16 pm

I was only 7 when it closed, but I do know that on weekends they showed Italian double features because at the time it was a predominantly Italian neighborhood. After it closed it became a social security office then a office supply store in the early 80’s Funny I had a dream about this theater the other night. If I remember correctly the name Savoia hung above the marquee vertical and curved.

Good point Howard. The aspect ratio for 70mm at the Ziegfeld and the Boyd were actually not as wide as a scope 2.35 ratio.

Mikeoaklandpark
Mikeoaklandpark commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Oct 21, 2014 at 5:06 pm

Is this going to be a true 2.35 aspect ratio 70mm showing or 1.85 which The master was. to me 1.85 aspect ratio is not true 70mm

How many multiplexes did National Amusments open on drive in site and close in less then 20 year. Besides this I can name the Whitestone Multiplex in the Bronx, the Atco multiplex in South Jersey and there is one more in North Jersey off the New Jersey turnpike.

msroane79 you are correct it was Bob Wilson Dodge. Also the status should be updated to demolished.

Chris1982 thank you so much for keeping us updated on the drive ins. They are a dying breed that need to make a big comeback.
