AMC Loews 19th Street East 6
6 people favorited this theater
Occupying the first floor and cellar of the 1884 Gorham Building at the NW corner of Broadway and 19th Street, Loews 19th Street East 6 opened for business on November 17, 1989. Inaugural attractions in the 1551-seat facility were “Harlem Nights” (on two screens!), “True Love”, “Valmont”, “High Stakes”, and “All Dogs Go To Heaven”. Loews' ads promoting the opening boasted, “Dolby Stereo in every auditorium!”. One auditorium was 70mm-capable.
Beginning on December 18, 1992, the facility featured the first theatrical engagement of a live-action interactive movie, “I’m Your Man”. Shot on 16mm film and transferred to laser disk, the twenty minute movie allowed patrons (users?) to select plot direction via armrest-mounted, three-button joysticks. For the $3 admission fee, customers were allowed to watch (play?) as many times as they wished. As of this writing, in November 2005, the concept has yet to catch on.
