Disney could easily take it and do what they did to the El Capitan. Open their big pictures exclusively in NY proper for weeks. Make them events, add a small stage show. Their shows are modest set wise, so a huge loading dock probably isn’t necessary anyway.

Since this twin will probably always be known as Peepland, I’ve given her a little dignity and posted some bookings in the ad section. As Cine 1 & 2 and The West Side Cinema Twin, they played many Warner Bros and Disney first runs including the original opening of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”.

20th Century Fox spent $15,000 for a full page ad in NY & Washington to defend their upcoming $20 million production. Six off-duty serviceman were burned during production and one of the injured thought Fox may be “toying with history in portraying the Japanese of Pearl Harbor days as nice people”.

Ed Solero, maybe you were talking about The Paramount in Huntington? Pat Benatar from Lindenhurst shot a 35th anniversary show there a few years go.

Not according to various “Annie Hall” location sites. I also don’t remember the Plaza having such a lit up marquee.

“The Plaza Theatre were young Annie met her boyfriend was in Englewood, New Jersey. The Plaza movie theatre was knocked down shortly after production, and was then owned by United Artists, Allen’s studio. It is now the Bergen Performing Arts Center, and you can find it at 30 N Van Brunt St.”

You are on a planet of a simian civilization where Ape is the highest order of living things and Man, the lowest – as imagined by PIERRE BOULLE, the author of the Academy Award winning “Bridge on the River Kwai.”

To bring this staggering concept to the screen, the film-makers faced the challenge of creating a whole new world.

What would life be like? it’s morality, morals, clothing, architecture, religion, weapons, law and love.

The result of this effort is now before the camera- the most unusual motion picture of our time. New Comment

…Then the hunters on horseback moved in for the kill, leveling their rifles at the three astronauts. Taylor raised his head, at first not believing his eyes. For the hunters were gorillas. Dressed in tunics and boots, they came down on him, the leader shouting, “Don’t kill them all. Save some for the laboratory. Throw the rest in cages'.”

The current tenant “SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical,” will close Sept. 16. Plans are still a go to demolish the Doubletree Hotel and build, get this, a brand new hotel (why?) and raise The Palace for retail space.

Newsday June 16, 2018

By Jean-Paul Salamanca

A groundbreaking for the new Sag Harbor Cinema was met with applause and hope Saturday.

The theater is expected to be rebuilt by next year, according to Nick Gazzolo, president of local nonprofit The Sag Harbor Partnership, which purchased the cinema.

The new theater will have three screens, a screening room, and a reception area and terrace, according to partnership members.

“It’s going to look the same from the outside and have the old sign and have the old feel to it, but it’s going to be state of the art,” Gazzolo said.

Ha, Bill I can relate, being from NY as a kid I’d watch the Hollywood Christmas Parade on WPIX11 to see the Hollywood marquees and they’d always show The Pantages.

In the summer of 1985 Disney took over RCMH and presented their summer movies “The Return To Oz” & “The Black Cauldron” with Summer Magic Special Engagements. With an offer for General Admission Orchestra and Third Mezzanine seats, including a 70MM presentation of the movies, a Disney stage show, 7 Course Meal, Free Parking and Mickey Mouse Watch for the kids.

“It was allowed to revert to the “R” rating a year later, as per the rules.”

What rules? Directors and Producers have fought the X for years and had to cut to get their R’s. They were never allowed to just change the ratings on their own.

I shall defer to Mr A, but boy is there is huge amount of misinformation about it. According to a 2011 article about the ratings, “David Picker, who was then president of production at the studio and oversaw Cowboy. "We didn’t even submit it. I rated it X.”

Then it says …“Two years later — also without UA ever asking — the ratings board reclassified the best picture-winning Cowboy with an R rating”

Why would the MPAA just voluntarily give it an R while the MPAA database only has “Midnight Cowboy” as Title: Midnight Cowboy (1971)Rating:R Certificate #:22039 Edited for re-rating

Supposedly it was never cut to receive the R and what was it re-rated from if the MPAA never awarded an X in the first place? Maybe it’s just me.

Even though the MPAA didn’t copyright the X, they did award films with it. “Midnight Cowboy” was submitted by United Artists and was the first studio film to receive it. Later, after it won The Oscar it was resubmitted and reduced to R without a cut.
