I do think it’s fun that he’s mimicking when films played at legitimate theaters early in the 20th century. The odd thing is that there will be 8 performances a week rather than 10 or 14(I’d love to see a sign out front (Two Performances Daily.)Will there be reserved seats,a film program? One thing I object to very strongly is the pricing. There are no tiered prices and $15 is a very paltry sum for a roadshow run. A mezz as well as orchestra ticket should be at least $40. Because it’s a drama. A musical would be more.

Henry Miller’s (subsequently demolished except for the landmark facade and rebuilt as the Stephen Sondheim) had a porn run. The current Walter Kerr (formerly RFK and Ritz)also had a limited film history as did the now demolished Bijou on 45th Street.

The more venues in this data-base, the better, as far as I’m concerned.

There are high school auditoriums on here that only played a movie once or twice. This one certainly deserves inclusion.

The Royale (now Bernard B. Jacobs) played the movie Gigi for six months and earned a spot on this website.

Any other one-offs anyone can think of…?

In my opinion, it is very exciting to have a movie showcased at a gorgeous, historic theater like this one! And, a movie by an extremely well acclaimed director who rightfully points out the lack of proper venues since the Ziegfeld and Paris closed.

P.S. Could it be because, as this website claims, there are no theatres within 30 miles? That’s a joke, folks!

To add this to the website is sheer lunacy, just because a single movie will have a special month’s engagement there by arrangement with the “legit” management. Several news reports claimed that the Belasco has no previous history with films, which could be true.
