Last of the Calderone movie houses
I wonder now where premieres and screenings will be held? Other than HUGE spaces like Radio City or the Beacon there are no 1000-1500 seat auditoriums. The Broadway legit houses should make some money during their dark periods and make their theaters available. After all Gigi played roadshow at the Royale
I love this type of art deco marquee
This name just sounds so moronic to me, just my opinion
4 week commitment seems a joke now. In the old days a movie like Star Wars played for months before it even went second and third run.
I was suprised this closed, there were not many theatres left uptown.
I remember this, Larry Parks had just died.
Come on Bow Tie the marquee still looks like crap
I never knew they played Roadshows here
The theaters glory days showing a roadshow
I was wondering why they were letting the marquee fall apart and go dark and leave graffiti all over the building, now I know. With this closing the nearby Jackson 3 might be worth reopening.
The upstairs theatre at the Plaza is still there too
Come on the theatre could get big bookings with all the other cinemas closed
Whats going on here?
So much money spent and then nothing, I was thinking about it since the King’s reopening
Is this closed totally or is the church having services here? What a damn shame after all the renovations that it could not sustain itself.
What awesome signage and to think now how AMC makes the outside of their locations dark and marqueeless.
I believe the church added a balcony that the theater never had
The theatre stopped showing movies in the 50’s and the place sat empty 20 years.
I don’t know if others feel like I do but the number one thing for me would be a massive screen. Something so big you can’t duplicate it at home. There was a reason in the 50’s for Cinemascope & Cinerama. Even IMAX is tiny now.
