Can’t wait to see “2001” here. I saw “Lawrence of Arabia” here in 70mm many years ago. Now I can see it again. This is a great way to keep midtown Manhattan’s last single-screen theater alive.

Al to the rescue, as usual…!

I just went to Google and typed in “hollywood reporter paris theater reopens” and the article appeared.

Mikeoaklandpark on August 11, 2023 at 1:38 pm

I went to the Hollywood Reporter page and did not find it

HowardBHaas on August 11, 2023 at 1:07 pm

Only Netflix premieres, plus retros including a 70mm classic film series! If you google, you can likely read the article.

I cannot get the link to open. Are they reopening as a first ruyn theater or still Netflix only premieres.

There’s no change here at all, for the past 3 years it has been the same arrangement! Netflix, Bow Tie, and others like a company that assists with projection.

perhaps if that link might have been adding in the original post, it could have prevented the kerfuffle.

Thanks Mike (saps) it was not here.

The Gray Man was in theaters, a few hundred sites for a week or two.

Unfortunately for Netflix, this $200 million movie was DOA.

big joe Netflix seems to only screen their films. Amazon is opening a theater too and I assume they would do the same. Netflix would do better releasing some of their films in a nationwide release. Amazon does a lot of theirs that way. The Gray Man on Netflix is good but it is streaming only and it’s an action film that should have been in theaters

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.

yes, back in August 2021 when a classics festival was held, including “A Man and a Woman” at the Paris, it was asserted by the theater that it was the longest running Paris movie, and that it had run 65 weeks. Thanks to Al for his list, too.

I think “A MAN AND A WOMAN” holds that record. Page 13 has the 20th Century list.

to HowardB-

we recently discussed that Call Me By Your Name was the longest running film here of recent years. it ran from Thanksgiving week 2017 to the first week of April 2018. but what is the longest running film ever here?

HowardBHaas, I also enjoyed seeing films there. Thank you.

HowardBHaas on January 15, 2022 at 2:15 pm

No, I am member of the public who very much enjoys seeing movies here. I do assist as I can with this website.

The Paris Theater, one of my favorite arthouse theaters, along with the Little Carnegie in midtown Manhattan. HowardBHaas are you currently the Operations Manager? As I see you responding to many of the posts. I do like the fact, that you are very involved with the cinema.

To help answer the question about 70MM, yes, the equipment is there for 70MM now. The one projector is the original Paris projector and a second similar one has been brought in. All sound amps etc are all installed. The only thing holding it back now is the lack of reels to mount the film onto. There are only 2 in the booth. We barely have enough reels for 35MM. These items are rare since everyone converted to digital about 10 years ago. All old equipment was sold for scrap.

I saw Hamlet in 70mm at the Paris.

ridethectrain on August 14, 2021 at 6:57 pm

YES, it had 70MM< When Loews had the Paris (aka Fine Arts) showed Howards End, Remain of the Days and Hamlet in 70MM 6 Track Dolby Stereo

Is it really true that the Paris is being equipped to project 70mm?
