116 days til Oscar

Though Manhattan is a wonderful place to be a movie lover -- there is ALWAYS something to see between the first run multiplexes and the rep theaters -- it's also filled with the ghosts of movie theaters past.The Paris closed down just about a month agoandthe Ziegfeld died in...well,we'll always be mourning the Ziegfeld.  It wasMoulin Rouge!andChicagopremiered in the early Aughts,and seeing the movie musical return to prominence in two consecutive years in a massive old school movie palace was heaven.It's also the site of the first time we saw Michelle Pfeiffer in the pflesh.Needless to say it was part of our soul.

Speaking of old movie houses.On this 116th day beforethe 92nd Oscars亚博主页we randomly found that there was oncea grand movie theater on 116th streetand 7th avenue (not so far from where we live) called The RKO Regent...

Before it was the RKO Regent it was the BS Moss Regent Theatre and it had vaudeville performances AND movies.So much showbiz happened there.

Apparently it's now a church which is too bad because Harlem has endless buildings of worship but almost no churches for movie worshippers.We have the Magic Johnson,a mainstream multiplex,and the teensy tinyMaysles Documentary Centerthat's not a regular movie theater.

Have any movie theaters you loved closed right before your eyes in your lifetime?
