A special place with a great name that means theater history… Shame on Disney for not going forward with a plan to showcase their productions! There is a good bit of narrative about Close Encounters as well as the events surrounding its World Premiere at the Ziegfeld. The Ziegfeld Theatre was, arguably, the last movie palace still showing films in Manhattan.

The day after the premiere the board was due to meet to finally decide to either reinstate Begelman or fire him. An elevator has an entry at the front area. Sadly, due to fewer premiers and with competition with multiplexes hosting the same movies, in January news was announced that the Ziegfeld Theatre would imminently close and after a renovation, reopen in as the Ziegfeld Ballroom, an event facility.

The Ziegfeld -Ballroom- flag was nice. Login or Sign up. Much of the former entry was walled off with a blank wall with flower boxes so current entry is narrower.

Though the presentation of this Is Cinerama was very poor and in 70mm the screen should have been kept. The movie house was one of the last big palaces built in the United States.
There were probably more world premieres in recent decades at the Ziegfeld Theatre than any US movie theatre outside of Los Angeles, too many to list here except for some that had long runs at the Ziegfeld Theatre: Like the Cinerama screen that was kept at the Warner and Zieggeld assume at the Capitol different film ratios could have been presented on it with proper masking and the use of curtains.
Small consolation, I know. Films like the epics that were to play there in the future and the restored films done by Harris would have been so much more impressive.
