Goodfellas and Casino were on a double bill (both 35mm) earlier this month at the Castro (SF). I had not seen Casino since it came out in the 90’s – highly recommend.

I should add those 4 films features four of Martin Scorsese’s masterworks, all edited by Thelma Schoonmaker, and starring Oscar winners Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.

since Netflix is running the film without an intermission
The Irishman by 1 minute takes the title away from the 1956
film version of War and Peace as the longest major and or
studio film released without an intermission.

I quickly glimpsed at the lower lounge concession area. It looked like the same refreshments that theaters offer at live shows. There was no popcorn.

Did Shubert offer regular movie refreshments like Popcorn and large soft drinks or the regular refreshments they serve for Broadway Shows

Thanks to Netflix for bringing glamour back to moviegoing by reopening the Paris Theatre for “Marriage Story” and for showcasing the 3.5 hour all star epic, thriller movie “The Irishman” at the beautiful Belasco Theatre! After having enjoyed “Marriage Story” earlier in the week at the Paris, yesterday at the 1 PM matinee, I enjoyed “The Irishman” at the Belasco. The red curtain rose and 2 trailers played of Netflix movies: “Marriage Story” and “The Two Popes” followed by the movie (which has no intermission). I sat in the second row (B) of the Mezzanine, which provided a perfect sightline for the large screen, with excellent 4k projection. The 7.1 surround sound was very good, too. The Belasco is gorgeous, with murals, Tiffany light fixtures, and plenty of ornamentation. The experience was like how people used to see movies, except that over time, the original grandeur of most movie palaces had faded, whereas the Belasco was properly restored in 2010.

Al, there are actually some comfortable seats in Broadway theaters. The worst, however, is the second balcony in the St. James meant for people with small legs.

According to the Sunday NY Times, the next Netflix film (“ATLANTICS”) will open at MOMA.

I will comment after my visit later this month.

So, no one who sat in the tiny uncomfortable seat of a Broadway theatre for a three hour and 29 minute movie has any comments?

Thank you Mike. I just purchased my ticket. Is there a website yet for the Paris for same studio, Netflix, presentation of Marriage Story?

At click on “shows and events” then click the letter I (for Irishman lol) and the listing should appear.

HowardBHaas on October 20, 2019 at 10:08 pm

The one listing in for Belasco Theatre that appears does not mention the Irishman.

HowardBHaas on October 20, 2019 at 3:49 pm

I am in Philadelphia. The Irishman will play here, but the opportunity to see the epic movie in a great historic, beautiful theater is too much to resist! Is there a website selling tickets?

And may this continue to happen more often.

Let’s face it there are darn few treasures on CT since the palaces of old are mostly gone or chopped up into little pieces. So the Belasco, which is an elegant space, is welcome.

In my opinion, a Theater is a Theater; most eppecially this theaters that were built in cities to showcase live theater. So what if they didn’t show films. They are still architectural wonders and like their movie palace counterparts, they will never build them like this again. Yes, this is called Cinema Treasures, and if a film played even once, then add it! :–). I would also love to see a separate section perhaps for those theaters that are in themselves works of art, but have never shown a film.

Damn boy, don’t give him any ideas about hiking up the prices ha ha.

vindanpar on October 10, 2019 at 10:38 am

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.
