Mark the Projectionist here folks. This Sunday starting at 1 pm, we have 2 pristine prints of Sidney Poitier movies. At 1 pm “To Sir With Love”, and at 3:30 “In the Heat of the Night”, with organ playing between shows. Not to be missed. These prints are in tip top shape.

I’m told by Mark the projectionist that “It’s A Wonderful Life” print is a pristine 35mm print, from the Library of Congress, looking glorious! It will be screened tomorrow at 2 PM and 7 PM.

Nice crowd last night. Picture was blazing off the screen. Sound kicked butt. A very enjoyable night was had by all.

markp on February 25, 2021 at 4:50 pm

Seats were being sanitized as I left today to get ready for tomw show.

I understand The Shining print is from WB Archives and like new condition! Mono sound like I think the original sound was when the movie was released. Tomorrow eve, see my post above on Jan 21.

HowardBHaas on January 21, 2021 at 5:30 pm

a quick glimpse online does indicate 150 max due to ongoing restrictions. I’ll say that will NOT be a problem because quite a few people are avoiding all movies out of fear. This is an enormous theater so everybody can be distanced quite a bit apart, so hopefully should feel “safe.”

markp on January 21, 2021 at 4:29 pm

Yes the Spaceballs print, considering the age is in mint condition. Barely any wear. Im not sure on how many people will be allowed to attend given the ongoing restrictions. If im correct I think 150 is the max. Best to check with the theatre before heading out.

HowardBHaas on January 21, 2021 at 2:39 pm
