NYer (and anyone else who might have an interest)…. “Cheyenne Autumn”: The Roadshow Engagements.

NYer on November 3, 2016 at 6:04 am

The Cove & The Shore changed shows with Aldo Ray in “The Naked And The Dead” on August 27, 1958. The Rialto changed Sept 10, 1958 with Rock Hudson in “Twilight Of The Gods” & “Kathy O”. The Regent, sort of an anti Syosset, a clean functional nondescript neighborhood movie house day and dated with Syosset until Sept 17, 1958 when Gary Cooper in “Man Of The West” came in. All the while Syosset was Roadshow.

NYer…Outstanding. Thank you. Do you know if the 4 closed at the same time or which one ran the longest? (I’m not asking you to do a search for me, only if you already know).

patryan6019 click on this site’s photo section up in the blue banner and all three ads should be there.

patryan6019 on November 1, 2016 at 2:22 am

NYer…Do you have ads for the Syosset opening, the 4 theatre engagement and perhaps the Skouras ad showing the 70 and 35mm runs together?

patryan6019 You’re right August 18, 1958. Sorry.

patryan6019 on October 30, 2016 at 1:00 am

NYer…Thanks for the fast response. Are you certain the year is 57. I was not expecting that because it was the 44th week in release and had opened in not quite 50 cities, 9 of which were 35mm — all single city and theatre and strictly reserved seats.

Hi patryan6019 Are you asking which theaters on LI played ATWI80D while The Syosset played it roadshow Todd-AO? If so, according to an ad for the week of August 18, 1957, it played at The Cove in Glen Cove, The Shore in Huntington, The Regent in Bayshore and The Rialto in Patchogue. Does that help?

patryan6019 on October 28, 2016 at 2:00 am

NYer…You know of runs in 35mm during the Syosset engagement (which itself was during the last 12 weeks of the 103 week Rivoli run)? Would it be possible for you to post any of that information here? It would be greatly appreciated.

The Exclusive Roadshow Presentation in TODD-AO of “Around The World In 80 Days” opened July 16, 1958 and played through October 30, 1958 even while the picture opened and closed at various non TODD-AO theaters around the island. It was replaced with the wide release of “The Bridge On The River Kwai” on October 31 1958.

Thank you, NYer.

May I ask another similar question? Do you (or any other CT members) know which movie followed the Syosset’s 1958 reserved-seat run of “Around the World in 80 Days”?

NYer on September 3, 2016 at 9:33 pm

“Cheyenne Autumn” 70MM Reserved Seat Roadshow engagement March 10, 1965- “April 12 1965”

“Mediterranean Holiday” 70MM Reserved Seat 70MM engagement April 14, 1965 until June 23rd “Sound Of Music”

“Cheyenne Autumn” ends exclusive at Syosset on Tuesday and opens all over the island the next day with the double feature “Goliath And The Sins Of Babylon” at popular prices.

Coate on September 3, 2016 at 1:35 pm

Can anyone confirm if the Syosset’s Spring 1965 run of “Cheyenne Autumn” played all the way up to the late-June booking of “The Sound of Music,” or was there a booking(s) in between them?

NYer on July 14, 2016 at 5:29 pm

“West Side Story” played it’s last performance January 1 1963. The theater was closed until Jan 11th, to do tech for the roadshow limited engagement of “The Wonderful World Of The Brothers Grimm” presented in CINERAMA.

Coate on July 14, 2016 at 1:11 pm

What booking followed the spring/summer 1962 roadshow run of “West Side Story”?

Thank you, NYer and Marti, er, I mean, patryan. :–)

“Oklahoma!” actually opened at The Cove, Bayshore & Patchogue Theaters the day The Syosset opened. As patryan6019 stated, The Syosset wasn’t reserved seats yet but they were the only theater on LI to play it in Todd AO. “Oklahoma!” however did return, on March 2 1962 with reserved seats and was replaced by the exclusive Long Island Premiere of “West Side Story” on April 13 1962.

patryan6019 on March 13, 2015 at 4:41 pm

Coate…It opened there Dec 9 and ran for 2 weeks, ahead of the area neighborhood break that started on Christmas day. It was not reserved seats.

Coate on March 13, 2015 at 4:00 pm

I’m aware “Oklahoma!” was screened here once for the theater’s grand opening in November 1956, but how long did it play when it returned a few weeks later for an actual multi-week (reserved-seat?) booking? Anyone know? NYer?

NYer on November 13, 2014 at 12:28 pm

December 16 1983, the beginning of the end for this grand lady. Triplex opening ad in photo section.

NYer on September 25, 2013 at 2:48 pm

You can see ads for both, last week for “Funny Girl” and opening ad for “Paint Your Wagon” here on page 17 of The Long Islander, a weekly paper based in Huntington. This site has many archived LI papers.

All old issues of Boxoffice are posted on their website,, look for “The Vault” section to find them.

Coate on September 25, 2013 at 2:03 pm

Does anyone from the NYC/Long Island region have access to Newsday (or other Long Island newspaper) on microfilm? I’m seeking confirmation of the closing date of the roadshow run of “Funny Girl” at the Syosset Theater. Did “Funny Girl” play right up to the Jan 28th, 1970 opening of “Paint Your Wagon”?
