News About This Theater

15 - CI&II

City Cinemas' Cinema 1, 2, and 3 was just two doors down from the now vanished Baronet & Coronet Theatre and a block away from the Crown Gotham Theatre. Today, both of those other theatres are gone, while this venerable art house, soldiers on. The opening movie on both screens was Sophia Loren in “Boccaccio ‘70”. A 3rd screen was added on December 21, 1988 giving a total seating capacity of 987. In 2016 recliners seats were fitted and the seating capacity was reduced to 332.

since I believe in free speech I have to accept your slightly curt replies to it seems all of my posts.

to which since having a working escalator is part of good theater management it would be a critique on the uneven degree of proper management at this theater if by the theater shutdown on Mon. March 16th the escalator which had been out of order since Oct. 2018 still hadn’t been mixed.

The theatre hasn’t reopened since March, what see when the time comes.

hdtv267 will probably post a witty sarcastic reply to this post but was the escalator fixed before the movie theater shutdown on Mon. March 16th.? its a simple question.

Just uploaded a bunch of photos of Cinema 1, 2 and 3 with recliners and prior to the installation of the recliners in the photos section. I thought I did them a few years ago, but didn’t realize it wasn’t uploaded.
