Best Old New Jersey Movie House Most Worth Jumping State Lines for - 2009
Landmark Loews Jersey Theatre
A grand palace from days gone by, the Landmark Loews Jersey Theatre provides a regular schedule of retro romping for anyone who fondly remembers moviemaking before The Fast & the Furious. Classic films are shown at reasonable prices ($6 general admission, $4 for seniors and children) for an audience mainly, but not exclusively, consisting of people who tune into Turner Classic Movies before they watch the news. Occasionally, the surviving stars will even show up (albeit at a higher price sometimes) to do easygoing talkbacks after the film while hawking their latest books. One night, Celeste Holm discussed her role in All About Eve (Bette Davis was rude to her—surprise, surprise), and another time, Farley Granger came by to talk about his involvement in Strangers on a Train. (He said Hitchcock wanted Grace Kelly for the Ruth Roman part.) Don't you be a stranger to the PATH train. Go!
