Everything went smoothly with the wild and scenic film festival and the dine in option. People were very respectful and neat and didn’t slobber all over the floors and drop a lot of food. Very good turnout of about 700 people.

Dine-in movie theaters are becoming popular. I think there are one or two in NJ. I just hope the diners don’t mess up the beautiful Lafayette.

For this special event ONLY.. There WILL be outside food and drink allowed in the theatre Mr S. It IS part of a cross-promotional situation. It gets folks to support the local eateries. As well as let more people know about the Lafayette. Of course since a theatre makes its primary profit, from con-secession sales. No outside food and drink is allowed any other time.

Since when is food and drink allowed in the theater? This is a serious no-no in any theater I’ve ever been too, including the Lafayette in the past.

Tomorrow Wed the 22nd, Earth Day. The Wild and Scenic film festival will take place. Doors open at 6:30pm. Films begin at 7:30p. You can go to a local restaurant and take a meal to go and “Dine in” at the theatre!

The program runs from 7:30pm to just a little after 10:00pm

It WILL be a fun and educational evening.

Too bad Im working on the 18th or I would have made the 70 mile trek to the theatre to see The Graduate. It was the first movie I ever saw with my first girlfriend (who sadly passed at the young age of 40 in 2000) and was the very first movie I ran as a projectionist some 39 years ago.

Stop the advertising please. This is not the place for advertisements.

mdvoskin on March 13, 2015 at 9:56 am

Hey Movieguy, that is old news. The Lafayette emailed me that information yesterday, as it did everyone who signs up for their weekly programming announcements.

dickneeds111 on March 13, 2015 at 9:08 am

Hey Movieguy, Why don’t you take your movie advertising and put it in the local newspaper or ask people to go to the theatre website and see what is playing. Most theatres are playing the same flicks at the same time. We have a small twin cinema here and there ads are on the theatre’s outside Marquee or on line. Stop this repeat nonsense.

movieguy on March 12, 2015 at 1:03 pm

If you did NOT get a chance to see the movie The Theory of Everything. Tonight is the final screening at 7:00 pm. Cindrella begins Friday.

I was thinking the same thing as mdvoskin. But in fairness, its still not as bad as the page for the amc rockaway 16. In fairness, movieguy is just passionate about the theatre and I cannot fault him for that.

JeffS on March 8, 2015 at 3:32 pm

Actually I always thought Cinema Treasures was for talking about the theaters themselves, and NOT for advertising what goes on there. I will admit that I don’t see a problem mentioning what may be running in an active theater, but day after day after day is a little ridiculous, and is firmly over the line into advertising.

I’m a member of CT to talk, learn, and listen about theaters, not to get ads. If you want to broadcast the theater’s schedule and lineup, get a LIST SERV and start a NEW list just for that. That’s not what CT is for.

movieguy on March 8, 2015 at 1:30 pm

Mdvoskin. Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry that you feel that getting announcements more than once for the same movie, constitutes “Spam” This was not the intention, when the post was put up. Yes Cinema treasures members are usually fans of the theatre. But if these post can get, people who don’t already know about the theater to come out, then it’s worth it. Perhaps there need only be one post for a weekend showing of the movie. With regards to showing bird man and the theory of everything. As you know in the months of January February and most of March. There is very little good product out there. As the studios dump their worst movies in those months. There is very little to choose from in first run movies right now.Focus, The Lazarus effect, unfinished business, along with Chappie. Were box office duds.So showing two movies that did well, at the Academy Awards, for just one week each, was the best choice to show at this time. They did bring in a decent crowd. Apologies are extended to you, in regards to you feeling that you got “spam. Please reconsider continuing to come to the Lafayette theater.

mdvoskin on March 8, 2015 at 12:29 pm

movieguy, you have gone way beyond the point of diminishing returns.

I don’t really care if you are involved with the theatre, or just a fanboy. In either case, posting the same announcements more than once is annoying because every time someone posts for this theatre, I get an email. You are basically using CinemaTreasures to SPAM me. Yes, I can unsubscribe to the Lafayette Theatre comments, but I actually do like the theatre and if one announcement per show is the price to pay for keeping up on what is happening there, no problem. Multiple emails for the same show are really annoying.

Ultimately, you cost the Lafayette one more customer, as I do not do business with spammers. I will have nothing more to do with the Lafayette until this stops.

Finally, I don’t know what you are trying to accomplish. You are preaching to the choir. Almost everyone here already knows what a great theatre the Lafayette is. Those that want email announcements are already signed up to the theatre’s email list (as am I). You would do better to place flyers on the windshields of cars at the Palisades Mall, because once you get someone to come to the Lafayette Theatre for the first time, chances are they will come back.

And to the theatre’s management, running movies that are already available on DVD/Bluray is not a good long term business plan.

????? What’s that suppose to mean? You’re living in a world of your own making and it’s very weird, man. I still stand by my comments. At least until it gets deleted by Peter Pan or whoever. Merde!!

coldwaterbottle on March 5, 2015 at 10:57 am

hotwaterbottle: the fact that your comment that you were done with this site and done with this theater was deleted doesn’t mean we don’t remember it!

movieguy on March 5, 2015 at 10:52 am

The screening of BIRDMAN is canceled tonight due to inclement Weather. Starting tomorrow Friday for ONE WEEK ONLY! The Theory Of Everything. Eddie Redbaine won an Oscar for his portrayal Of Steven Hawking. Showtimes: Friday 7:30 pm. Saturday and Sunday: 1:30, 4:30, 7:30 pm. Come out and see this excellent motion Picture! But bring some tissues to dab the corners of your eyes.

hotwaterbottle on March 5, 2015 at 9:55 am

Cholera! What’s a troll to do? I simply took movieguy to task for acting like he was the manager when he clearly wasn’t and now it’s all this? Does Disney run this site? Any dissenting view, other than the nice, calm, squeaky clean kind is dealt with by deletion?? What a joke. And Jeff, I too miss the days of Nelson & Co. And, movieguy, why don’t you just answer the question instead of side stepping it? Cachu!

To the overseers: Let Jeff speak! (That’s also a line from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, which I’m sure has played the Lafayette at least once).
