What's the point of this place? I have probably seen two good films being played here in the past ten years and even then you have to deal with the place itself. The ugly stepsister of 68th street Sony theater, the 84th street loews is given only what is too bad to grace other movie screens. With a giant marquee lighting up the street, you would hope to find a better selection of films, especially in an area of the city where people care about such a thing, but alas. It is amazing they keep the theater running, since the price of rent is so expensive in that area and they are on prime ground but I guess they make do. Even when there is that one film you might want to go see there, the theater conditions are deplorable. Mildewed theaters, broken down seats, and sticky seats await you inside and the theaters are usually poorly ventilated. The most definately underpaid staff is also not bending backwards to make sure you are treated curtiously either. My best advice would be to avoid this theater all together, go see films at the theaters in the 60s or venture further downtown. Lets see them pull the theater and maybe put something a little more useful in that space. If only they would consider an smaller venue movie house, but probably not.
