Taxi commented about Bow Tie Cinemas acquires Reston Town Center 13 on Apr 7, 2011 at 5:26 pm

Doesn’t bowtie have a financial interest in rave or is it the other way around?

Taxi commented about Bow Tie Cinemas will use Technicolor's non-digital 3D projection system on Mar 5, 2010 at 8:06 am

Will I still see film scratches at the Palace 17, but now in 3-D? Will the upcharge be the same as digital 3-D, or less, because of the lower cost?

Taxi commented about Rave Cinemas, LLC announces definitive agreements to purchase up to 40 theaters on Dec 24, 2009 at 9:28 am

I think this is the same Charlie Moss that runs the Bowtie cinema chain, here in Connecticut. If so does this mean a merger between the old Showcase Cinemas here and Bowtie theaters?

Taxi commented about Elm Theatre on Dec 17, 2008 at 9:22 pm

I just ate at a new trendy restaurant called Elements, right accross from the old Elm theater. Why! Walgreens Why! The new Blue back section is such a cluster you know what, that the old cool is now the new cool. I see excellent growth and a bright future for the Elmwood section. If only this theater could have held out a little longer.

Taxi commented about Regal in the news on Dec 10, 2008 at 9:50 pm

In Connecticut the main chain is Showcase Cinemas a.k.a. National Amusements. I used to wish for more choices and competition and hoped for Regal or Cinemark to enter the market. After seeing movies at the Waterbury Regal, the Plainville AMC, and the Local bowtie cinema, all I can say about Showcase, be careful what you wish for, like James Bond, no one does it better. Lets hope redstone figures a way out to keep the New England, New York and New Jersey theaters.

Taxi commented about Showcase Cinemas East Windsor on Jan 27, 2008 at 10:43 am

A very nice showcase cinema. This theater is always friendly and clean. They have beautiful neon wall art. The only negatives are some chatty teenagers on the weekends and too many steps to get in, like climbing a mountain sometimes, but in general a overall good movie going experience every time. Too bad the word is that this theater may shutdown like the theater in East Hartford, it is just too close to their theater in Enfield, which now has a digital projector and may expand to 14. Maybe even become a Showcase deluxe. East Windsor is just too small to support this theater.– tom

Taxi commented about Hoyts Simsbury Commons 8 on Jan 1, 2008 at 12:59 pm

Does anyone know who owns/manages this theater? It is not listed on the entertainment cinemas or BCG websites, and I doubt Hoyt’s runs just one theatre in North America.

Any truth to the rumor that this cinema will reopen soon? I also think a cinema cafe would be an advantage if it does re-open

Cinema City also opened in 1973, I am not sure which opened first, but if I had to bet which one would close first, I would have lost. There was a time when this was the only place to see movies, because it really was the only place, now there is such a glut of screens. If showcase had renovated the theater before buckland hills opened, with stadium seating etc, I think business would have been split and this theater would still be open today. -tom

Taxi commented about Real Art Ways Cinema on Dec 23, 2007 at 9:16 pm

What a fantastic art cinema this is!. Not only do they play great films, but they have a very cool art gallery as well. Every third Thursday there is a “Creative Cocktail Party” with a DJ. This is the most eclectic and fun theater in the Hartford area. If you like Art films and live within driving distance, this is the one of two great theaters. Cine studio and Real Art Ways pack a one-two punch for the best art cinemas in the Hartford Area.
