Just about everything either used to premiere in NYC or be specially treated with special prints, extra equipment added or the introduction of new technology. That's no longer the case. NYC used to be a real movie town, but no longer. I don't think that BowTie, which operates the Ziegfeld (and the Chelsea) cares much about doing anything special (other than renting the theatre out for premieres). We're a long way from the era in which the Ziegfeld showed films exclusively. Since 2001, NYC has lost 32% of its theaters and 18% of its screens. There's been rumors for a few years that we're going to lose the UA14 and the Cinema 1,2, 3rd Ave. Going back decades, there were 139 U.S. theaters with more than 2800 seats. 29 of those were in NYC. While the Walter Reade is capable of 70mm, the screen is too small and the audio isn't that great. I was disappointed when I saw Lord Jim there. On the other hand, we do now have a Dolby Cinema screen at the AMC Empire 25 (although film can't be shown there).
