Word on the Street

They just don't make theaters like the Ziegfield anymore. It's one of those places where you could see any movie at all and feel just a little more elegant and glamorous doing so. And, really, despite that it's not the movie theater around the corner for most of us, shouldn't a little elegance and glamour be enough of a reason to see any movie there? Often they show classic films--think old time Westerns, Ben Hur, Lawrence of Arabia, that kind of thing. But just as often they also show family-friendly fair including Disney movies that also include special appearances, events and other activities perfect for little ones. A recent premier of The Frog and The Princess, for example, included appearances by most if not all of the Disney princesses.
