Friday night my favorite movie theater (the Loew's Jersey Theatre) was playing my favorite movie (Muppets Take Manhattan) so a PATH train ride was a must.
The Loews Jersey is a beautiful old movie palace restored and run by volunteers. They show movies there about once a month, popcorn is a dollar, you can't beat this place and I want to show you some pictures of it.
This is what it looked like after the movie ended and they raised the screen--the giant speakers that had been blasting Kermit and Piggy's voices at us all night.
The organ--before each show there's a dude playing it and they lower him into the earth when the movie starts. You can't beat this place.
Looking back. This place is gigantic, and there's a balcony, too.
Also looking up.
This is the Men's room. I can only imagine what the Ladies room looks like.
Chandelier and lobby.

This organ you can't touch. So maybe I could have touched the other one?
Steven and Jeff, discussing Muppets with excitement.
For the record, before the movie Cher and I had Filipino food there in the neighborhood. It started out pretty well, grew more challenging towards the end. Very authentic, though. That's my guess.
