"Bridget Jones Baby" - Movies at The Reg

, New York City | Entertainment

"Bridget Jones Baby" - Movies at The Reg: Oscar® winners Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth are joined by Patrick Dempsey for the much-anticipated next chapter of the world's favorite singleton. Rated R. 125 minutes. The Reg Lenna Center for The Arts was first opened on February 5, 1923 as the Palace Theatre, a "High Class Vaudeville" house. Films - usually a short comedy plus a feature, were shown before and after the twice daily vaudeville performances. Three years later Nikitas Dipson bought the facility and continued with film and vaudeville shows until he leased it as one of Warner Brothers theaters for 20 years. By 1934 films were the only entertainment available on a regular basis, with live performances seeing much less stage time. In 1950 Dipson Theatres once again took over management. The Palace was remodeled by installing new heating and cooling systems, carpeting, wall coverings and new seats. At the reopening Dipson reaffirmed his intention to feature not only first run films of the best quality, but also stage shows, orchestras and vaudeville. In 1956, Forever Darling, starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, had its world premiere at The Palace. With the passing years fewer and fewer people attended the theater, equipment was wearing out, and the building needed repairs. http://reglenna.com Source and image source: http://www.tourchautauqua.com
