This looks like a beautiful theatre! Although I’m not a Brooklyn, or NY resident, it always heartens me to see theatres like this renovated and preserved.

MPol commented about How ‘New Blood’ Brought Beverly’s Historic Movie Palace Back To Life on Apr 7, 2016 at 11:29 am

It’s heartening to learn about the recent restoration of more old Classic movie theatres that show classic films. It’s a good omen…and a real good step in the right direction, if one gets the drift.

There should be more of these movie theatres with deco marquees. I’m glad they managed to save this theatre from the wrecking ball.

What?!? Oh, my god!

This is terrible news. Even though I’m not a New Yorker, I remember seeing my all time favorite film, West Side Story, back in the fall of 2006, with my cousin. I drove from Boston to NYC that morning to see it, and to see my cousin, as well. We had such a great time seeing the film West Side Story at the Ziegfeld Cinema. It looked beautiful on that long, narrow screen.

I have some fond memories, and it’s hard for me to picture this theatre going out of business.

Golly! It would be so nice if Boston had that many art-house movie theaters!

Maybe more movie theatre staff people should follow the example of Alamo Draft House and kick chronic troublemakers out of their theatres, with no refund. Alamo Draft House, imho, has the right idea!

MPol commented about News From Loews Jersey City on Jul 3, 2015 at 7:55 pm

Imho, the more movie venues that’s available, the more choices in movies that people have to choose from. The fact that so many movie venues have gone the way of movie theatre heaven is unfortunate, because it severely restricts the kind(s) of movies that’re available for people to choose to go and see.

It would be a shame to see this grand-looking theatre either go the way of movie theatre heaven or to be restored as an over-priced concert hall.

MPol commented about Happy 45th, "The Sound Of Music" on May 23, 2015 at 11:18 am

I saw a 50th-year Anniversary re-release of “The Sound of Music” with my sister and a good friend of hers, in Iowa City, IA, when I made my annual road trip and visit to my sister in Iowa City, IA, and we all had a wonderful time. The film was brand new, and absolutely pristine, to boot. Seeing it on a great big, wide movie theatre screen added much magic and dimension to a cool film.

It’s too bad that there isn’t a Cinerama here in the Boston area. I wish there were.

MPol commented about "OC Teen Leads Crusade to Ban Drinking at Cinema" From Aliso Viejo, CA. on Mar 4, 2015 at 12:05 pm

One way for theatre proprietor(s) to prevent teenagers from drinking in movie theatres is to implement an extremely strict “We do not serve alcoholic drinks to minors (i. e. people under 21 years of age) policy and get tough on adults in the audience who do share/serve drinks to minors.

It’s true that spilled beer does stink, but maybe movie theatres who do serve alcoholic beverages should also implement a mandatory “clean up after oneself” policy for patrons who do spill their beer or whatever.

This theatre looks like the kind of theatre that deserves a good, thorough renovation! Hope everybody in the area enjoys it!

The various movie theatres here in the Boston, MA area now serve beer and wine (but no hard liquor, i. e. whiskey, to my knowledge.), and so far, there’s been no disastrous results. They do have a policy, however, of not allowing people to bring alcoholic beverages outside the theatre, or they will be subject to arrest and permanent banning from the movie theatre(s).
