Beautiful theater, especially when it’s lit up at night. I’ve been working here for a while now, and I think it just has a really great and friendly atmosphere. Tickets aren’t cheap, general admission is $10.50, but I’m sure they would probably be cheaper if the film makers didn’t spend so much money making the movies.

Anyway, an interesting tid bit about this theater: The first Wednesday of every month we show an old classic movie in the afternoon (as of late it’s been at 1pm ) and admission is only a dollar! Lots of fun! Just get there early because it can get pretty crowded.

There was also to be another multiplex at Republic Airport containing 12 theatres but that never materialized. It would have been ridiculous to have three multiplexes with 36 screens within walking distance of each other in a town that, in good times, had trouble supporting one theatre.

People take advantage of the Silver Screen Classic ticket price and go to another auditorium. I know. A friend of mine used to meet me there and sometimes couldn’t get in because it was sold out. Yet there were seats available including one I had for her. My solution. Buy two tickets and leave one at the “box office” for her.

Any reports on the 70mm showing of The Hateful Eight?

Banners outside the theater proclaim recliners.

The close by Regal Farmingdale stadium 10 was the first to installed recliners, so the also have them to keep up with them

I think the whole business of recliners is ridiculous. Just give me a good movie at a reasonable price.

The interior decor was done over the summer.Look like a brand new cinema.

I’ve moved WAY out east so I’ll never get to see it.

Went by today. They are changing the signage to read Showcase Cinema DeLuxe. Guess that means a price increase.

I was at the 2pm attempted TCM showing of Hitchcock’s North by Northwest yesterday when the projector or the signal or something wasn’t cooperating, and the screening was canceled. Everyone was given a pass to come back and refund of their admission price but it was still disappointing.

From the short bit we were able to see, the movie looked great — clear image, good sound, and subtle and natural use of Technicolor.
