Thank You, Film Forum for the fantastic presentation of “The Creature From The Black Lagoon”. The digital restoration and 3-D were eye-popping, to say the least. (as was, of course the beautiful Ms. Adams.) It was great to see a film where the 3-D became a important part of the plot and not just an “add-on”. Once again, kudos to FF.

Yesterday I attended a William Castle double bill of “The Tingler” and “Homicidal”. They took interactive movie-going to new heights. Forget 3D – these movies were in 5D. I even got popcorn in my hair. Most fun I’ve had at the movies in years.

Thanks Bill. Love Castle’s films—he took showmanship to the upmost level. What I would have given to have been there. Any idea if showings were film or digital?

Nick; they usually indicate on their website wheter a film will be shown in 35mm or DCP digital.

Wish my scheduling had worked out for this round of Bill Castle’s films. I went last time and had a blast,er, buzz at the screenings.

Thanks Tim. “The Tingler” was digital and “Homicidal” was 35mm. I just checked the website and was amazed at this months line up of horror/sci-fi classics. Even “Village of the Damned”(1960) is scheduled. Time to vacation in NY for the next two weeks.

Praise and a heart-felt thank-you to Film Forum for bring back The “Sci-Fi Festival” this year. I hope it was a big money-maker for you. Love to see this come back every summer, again.

This theater is prominently featured in first part of the new film “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” The auditorium shots may have been filmed in a studio, though.

The ticket stub wasn’t from the Film forum

The discussion between Ryan and his girl friend was about the Film Forum. The marquee also appears in an early scene.
