Didn't they have films last weekend? Anyway, if the city hadn't screwed them over . . . and if/when the big guys get their hands on it, don't expect any $8 movies with $1 cans of soda either.

Shouldn't it actually show movies to be the best movie theater?

I mean, seriously. They have NO EVENTS scheduled for the rest of the year. Zero. None, nada, zippo.

They don't even have the resources to benefit from a nice article in nj.com.

WNYC often shows The Wonder Theaters, a great documentary about these, with an emphasis on the one restored a few years ago in Brooklyn.

N.J.'s best movie theater: This golden movie palace from the 1920s still shines

JERSEY CITY -- When we began our search for New Jersey's best movie theater earlier this month, we knew the sprawling venue in Journal Square would be the contest's wildcard.

After all, which other film hall is referred to as a movie "palace"? Where else are entering patrons immediately met with a grand, gold-ceilinged lobby and balconies overlooking intricately detailed walls and candelabras better suited for a cathedral?

Any local movie buff knows Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre in Jersey City's bright-bulbed history, beginning in 1929 as one of five Loew's Wonder Theatres built in the New York area. It's where Frank Sinatra saw Bing Crosby perform in 1935, and knew he "had to be a singer."
