At The Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre:

FREE Tours September 9 1PM & 3PM. Please RSVP at http://loewsjersey.eventbrite.com

Anyone who is into history, architecture, theatre, movies, David-vs-Goliath sagas, or all of the above should take this tour.

The Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre, located at 54 Journal Square, Jersey City, is a remarkable building in many ways, including its grand décor, epic size, vintage mechanical systems, and -- not least -- ideal with which it was built: take the grandest architecture of European royalty and build it even bigger and better in America, but open for everyone to enjoy. It is literally the kind of building they don't make anymore.

People who take a tour will get to see backstage, the projection booth, and other areas of the landmark Theatre not usually open to the public. There’ll be discussion of the Loew’s colorful history, including the improbable battle that saved it from the wrecker’s ball. And there will be info about the volunteer effort that first reopened the Loew’s after being closed for more than ten years, and now continues restoration work even while also operating the Theatre as an arts center.

The Loew’s Jersey is also easy to reach from throughout the Metropolitan Region: It is right across JFK Boulevard from the JSQ PATH Station. It’s also minutes from the Holland Tunnel, NJ Turnpike, and Rts. 1&9 and 3. There is even discount parking in Square Ramp Garage located immediately behind the Theatre on Magnolia Avenue off of Tonnelle Avenue.
