Now Playing: Another one bites the dust
Topic: As Time Goes By
I read yesterday with much disappointment about the closing of the Beekman Theater in Manhattan. I lived around the Beekman for years and what a wonderful movie theater. No multiplex, just one single screen seating about 800 people, I had some of the most wonderful viewing moments of my life. Slap Shot, Animal House, Sea of Love and hundreds more movies I watched there. The great thing about the theater was the concession area. You could still see the movie from the downstairs area, whether waiting on line or on the way to the bathroom. I saw a couple of premiers there too. Star-studded affairs. I'll never forget being a foot away from Al Pacino at the Sea of Love opening. This was a theater of fondest memories.
