to Mikeoaklandpark- out of curiosity was the Dreamgirls souvenir
program you referred to an actual one sold in lobby or a deluxe
freebie hand out?
Ryan’s Daughter played here on an actual reserved performance
engagement which meant once the film ended you had to leave the
theater. so since I can’t remember I’m asking if Gandhi was shown
here on reserved performance engagement or a regular continuous
its fascinating that eventhough Gandhi was a long film with an
intermission they screened it on a regular continuous performance
for anyone who might own it is the currently available blu-ray
disc of The Sand Pebbles the original roadshow cut which played here
or the general release print?
the only way the Landmark 57 would have been able to make it
is if the residents of the immediate area went there on a regular
basis. that didn’t happen. so LOOK Dine-In Cinemas had better have
a Guardian Angel so it doesn’t happen a second time.
maybe but remember the 1st rule of real estate-location,location, location.
I wish the new management all the best but and there’s
always a but. they will have the same problem Landmark did
since you asked per se. everytime I went to the Cinema ½/3 I did
in fact ask the highest up managerial staff member I could find
about the escalator and no one was ever able to give me a straight
according to mOOse1111’s most recent post theaters should be allowed to have their escalators out of service for 4 ½ years. apparently
that’s good customer relations.
if i remember correctly the only traditional roadshow engagement
to play this theater was Marooned which opened this theater Dec.
1969. the next Fall 1970 Ryan’s Daughter opened on a reserved
performance engagement. which brings me to my question- when
Gandhi opened here Dec. 1982 was it on a reserved performance
basis or a regular continuous performance basis? after all it
was a long film with an intermission.
I would love to know why the escalator was out of servicefor almost 4 ½ years??? what reason could the managementof this theater give that would be at all credible???
if I am not mistaken the world’s most famous skyscraper the Empire State Building took precisely 19 months to be built. the escalator
at this theater has been out of service since Oct. 2018. given the
Empire State Building info what possible reason could the management
of this theater give that would excuse the escalator being out of
service for 4 ½ years???
to stevenj thanks for your reply. if your description of how
it would work is accurate i should think it would be
SUPER ANNOYING for people not ordering food.
I’m not sure exactly what options are involved in a “dine-in”
experience but you want to bet the food will be wayyyyyyyyyyy
whichever theater chain operates this theater will run into the
same problems Landmark did.
including the closing for renovations and the different configurations
is this the oldest operating movie theater in Manhattan?
Hello- in which auditorium is the 4K 3D Titanic going to be in???
I want to make sure I have the correct info- the Harris Theater
was in perfectly renovatible shape they just chose not to.
will the 4K 3-D re-release of Titanic play the IMAX auditorium?
why did the Chelsea close??? was this something that was known orwas it a literal last minute decision.
while it is sad I never got to enjoy the Roxy people have to
realize that HUGE theaters like the Roxy were living on borrowed
time the split micro nano second t.v. became commonplace in the American home.
will Avatar in 3D be in the IMAX auditorium the whole 2 weeks?
to Al A.-
you are correct about me trying to find the 1st purpose built
movie theater in Manhattan. the Regent on 135 St. predates this
the Strand by a year.
is there any hope this might be a regular movie theater
again? all it shows 99% of the time are Netflix films and for
every Roma, The Irishman, Marriage Story and The Two Popes
there are 50 Thunderforces.
to Al A.- I appreciate your diplomatically discreet replies
to my post of 7/17. they confirm my suspicion that the parent
company is consciously letting this theater once one of the
premiere 1st run theaters in Manhattan fall apart so they can
close it and sell the building.
