Does anybody remember a popular clothing store for kids on Pitkin Avenue in the 1960’s? My Mam and Dad used to take us there for our dress clothes..easter dresses and coats…I can’t remember the name of it. Help me!!! Thanks.

Superman 1978 is being shown here this week in honor of the upcoming justice league movie. I wonder if it’s a 35mm print or a DCP? Recently warner released a two movie set on blu ray containing the 2001 special edition and the hd version of the t.v. extended cut .

When the Lincoln plaza closes, it will have no impact on this theater.

The one theater that you can actually see and hear Martin Scorsese introduce a fine restored film on several rare occasions.

Superman here seems like a joke.

Last I saw it was second run at the Criterion before the multiplexing. Brought a friend who had never been in the theater before and she was so impressed. Sad that that Astor Plaza bunker got first run films and the great Criterion which was one of NY’s top theaters was so quickly reduced to exploitation fare in the early'70s.
