Radio City was always reel to reel. Sometimes they would bring in a platter for special screenings. When the change to digital started, our film premieres went down drastically. The last 35MM we premiered was Kevin Smith’s “Red State” in 2011. Since then, everything has been shown in digital. The only film we still run is 70MM 3D for the Christmas show.

rcdt55b Did you work there while projection systems changed from platter systems to digital, or was it the latter when you started?

I’m a projectionist there. I’ve been there since 2005. The department head has been there since 2000.

Sorry for sounding that way m00se1111. It just shows you how fast things can change. We got 3 new updates within 4 hours that day. The Friday that we shut down, there were about 1000 people in the audience for the 11AM show with people still coming in. 10 minutes before the show they cancelled it. Early that afternoon they tested the other cast and too many were infected so they had to cancel it all.

that wasn’t directed at rcdt55b. It was directed as those above.

But anyway..

“Broadway has taken a major hit this week after several shows have had to cancel some performances, and now, “The Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes” has had to cancel its all of its remaining shows in 2021 due to COVID cases.”

I work there. I am not giving misinformation. In fact,we just got an update from management today. It is what I posted. The Christmas Show is not cancelling shows as of right now. Of course, this may change at some point. For now, the information I gave is correct.

wow, these posts aren’t aging well. Well that’s what happens when a historical site turns into a misinformed bitty fest with no controls, random posts “ they performed at the Macy’s Parade”- who the bloody hell are they.

Broadway shows are cancelling performances as of 12/16/21, so one would presume changes are coming to RCMH as well

Masks are optional at Radio City now and after December 26th for 12 and up. After December 26th, kids 5 and up must show proof of vax or they will not be admitted.

The new mandate is ONLY for places with no vax policy.

From what I heard on the news last night everyone indoors in NY is required to wear a mask no matter what the vaccinations status was. I thought Broadway has had mandatory masks no matter what your vaccination status is.

I haven’t heard one complaint from ANYONE here over the last 3 weeks about the policy.

They performed during the parade in a prerecorded segment before Santa came on Thanksgiving on NBC.
