As I gazed at the walls and the ceilings and the upper levels I realized that the dusty air within and the odor of decay cannot be allowed to linger if the theater ever wants to become a place of entertainment value.

I could go on and on, and yes, I appreciate the valor and fortitude in the effort of the volunteers in the comeback they are trying to efface there, but someone has to come to reason and see that filth must be removed from a public gathering place first for the enjoyment of the public.

That silly organ sure gleams though.


You're alone on this. Went to the show last night as well and everyone loved the organ player and was taking tons of pics- it definitely elevates the experience and makes it unique. The theatre needs additional repair but your complaints are way off.

When it comes to privacy rights, every President stands on the shoulders of previous Presidents.

I fully support criticizing these overreaches by Obama. But will you do the same when Trump follows suit? Based on your posting history, I doubt it. You support party over country.


Are you kidding? Most Republicans don't think President Trump IS Republican, lol. But please show me where you criticized Obama for his amping up the NSA and the like-I don't recall you getting wound up over this.


I criticized Bush and Obama then for their privacy overreaches and I still do now. Looking forward to you doing the same with Trump.

I've never been a fan of Democrats. Republicans either. They both suck. You root for your political party regardless of what they do, that's all.

Best comment ever made ... both party subservients are guilty ... be a swinging voter and if both parties fail to produce a 'reasonable' candidate (first time in my history) and the country is going in decline in every facet, then it's time to move ... 22 days to go and Melbourne will be my new home and Australia my new country of residence ... can't wait!

The only comment Trump has made that is 100% accurate is the fact that the U.S isn't 'great' and hasn't been so for the past 40 years - We have been on a progressive spiral of corporate greed and financial mismanagement, leaving us in debt with VERY poor social and infrastructural services. "Joe Citizen" has always come last in reality and first in 'fantasy' when politicians make promises during election time!

Big Brother is watching: '1984' returns to theaters

George Orwell's "1984" became a best-seller once again in January 2017, right around the time of President Donald Trump's inauguration and his counselor Kellyanne Conway's use of the term "alternative facts." 

The 1949 novel imagines a dystopian society where critical thought is discouraged in favor of the anti-expressive "newspeak" and unconditional love of authority, which is represented by a symbolic figure called "Big Brother."

Both the Highland Park Outdoor Movie Theater (municipal parking lot between Second and Third avenues on Raritan Avenue) and Landmark Loew's Jersey in Jersey City (54 Journal Square Plaza) will screen the film on April 4.
