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.

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

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

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

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

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

Banners outside the theater proclaim recliners.

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

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.

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.

Because a stadium theatre opened just down the road, literally, the owners were forced to convert some of the theatres to stadium seating. But not all. Theatre number two is a big, traditional auditorium. That’s where the Silver Screen Classics are shown. They used to rotate between the multiplexes, Hickville Tuesday, Farmingdale Wed etc. Now it seems that every Monday in every Multiplex there is a classic. Now the price has doubled to $2.00.

The booth and equipment are very nice. I miss working there.

I’ve been working down the road from this multiplex for the past couple of weeks. While these sorts of megaplex cinemas are not my cup of tea when it comes to theatre aesthetics, this sprawling building is rather impressive when lit at night. I think that’s mostly due to the look of the center lobby glass atrium that faces the intersection of Rt. 110 and Conklin Avenue. How big are the theaters themselves – looks like the building is large enough to offer some fairly sizeable rooms. I presume the classics are merely DVD’s projected onto the screen rather than actual 35 mm film presentations?

I only wish that theatre chains would at least make an attempt to name their cinemas with a bit more style and originality. The generic “MULTIPLEX CINEMAS” signage on the building speaks to a stunning lack of imagination and promises none of the magic that movies (at their best) have to offer. In any event, this place sure looks more inviting (as far as cineplexes go) than the shabby looking UA Multiplex down the road.
