…Bobby Darin lived at 50 Baruch Place as a child, not far from the Sunshine Cinema ( was then the Yiddish National, a vaudeville theater, according to David Evanier in his current Darin biography…). Anyway, this would be the perfect venue for Kevin Spacey’s Bobby Darin biopic BEYOND THE SEA to premiere…it’s scheduled to open in NYC and LA late December 2004, and I am not aware that an NYC theater has been slected yet..any movers/shakers out there???

This is an amazing theatre. I was lucky enough to see a midnight show of “Taxi Driver” there last winter, the place was packed. The architecture is brilliant. Leave it to Landmark to keep those art houses thriving.

Since the site now exhibits “past names,” the names “Houston Hippodrome” and “Sunshine Theatre” should be displayed.
A zip code search (the theatre is located in 10002) does not return this theatre.

Easily the best art house experience in NYC. (The Angelika has the cool cache, the neat cafe, and a good selection of films, but the subway trains rumbling underneath the shoebox auditoriums, the lack of legroom, the cattle call in the lobby just before showtime… plain and simple, the Sunshine’s time is here…)
