The Loew's Jersey is a magnificent, ornate, 3100-seat Rapp & Rapp designed movie palace, built in 1929 and currently undergoing full restoration. It is one of the finest surviving theatres of its type in the New York area. Further info: www.loewsjersey.org
    Hope to see as many HTF'er's there as possible!

    Thanks, Peter! This is like a dream come true. I'm going to attend as many of these as I can. It's been a long time since I last saw a big screen classic at the Loew's: BEN-HUR in 1961, age 6!

    Excellent news Peter![​IMG]
    I'll be there for Mad World, the Bond films, Forbidden Planet and probably more.
    Anyone within driving distance should make every effort to attend these wonderful programs. As I have said before, the Loews Jersey is my childhood hangout and every chance I have to help it out, I will.
    Thanks again for keeping us updated Peter.[​IMG]
