Bells and whistles? I heard none.

BTW Hello Ladies!

Is this Loews the one with the chandelier in the lobby?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:09pm kimzilla:

Yes! Pictures to follow!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:09pm Richard S:

I've been there! A special event double feature - Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Adventures of Robin Hood
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:10pm cosmic matrix:

WWWOOWW this is already amazing. I wanna go!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:11pm cosmic matrix:

I can SMELL this place.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:12pm Richard S:

@cosmic matrix: That's the mix of dust and tobacco smoke that's penetrated the woodwork.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 7:13pm melinda:

omg, that's beautiful.
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:14pm Cathy M.:

Love that organ music.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:15pm cosmic matrix:

pure bliss
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:16pm dez:

loews is really THE BEST place!
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:17pm Kate:

love the music, did you record it there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:18pm kimzilla:

This Saturday, Sept. 23 Loew's will present two titles:

“Lilies of the Field” starring Sidney Poitier; 1963 -- at 6PM;

followed by

“Superman” starring Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, Marlon Brando; 1978 -- at 8PM.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:18pm cosmic matrix:

that bass!!!
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:21pm Emily:

Kate! WE didn't record it there, but it is a recording of an organist playing this very organ in this very theater!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:21pm cosmic matrix:

now we're talkin'
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:23pm Richard S:

I was there before the renovations had really begun. Our host mentioned that they thought the lobby chandelier had such lovely amber crystals. Then when they started cleaning it, they realized they were clear - the color was from decades of tobacco smoke.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:23pm TehBadDr:

Loves me The Landmark Theaters!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:23pm cosmic matrix:

organ is a bit loud.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:24pm kimzilla:

“Lilies of the Field” starring Sidney Poitier; 1963 -- at 6PM;

“Superman” starring Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, Marlon Brando; 1978 -- at 8PM.

What’s the connection in the shows the Loew's are playing? With all the terrible destruction from hurricanes in the news, we thought it would be reassuring to remember a couple of Supermen – one, a super hero; the other, just a man who does something super.

A portion of the proceeds from each screening will be donated to hurricane relief efforts.

Because of the short lead time, we won't be able to do a lot of advertising, so we're asking people to help spread the word on social media and the old fashioned way.

(Both will be screened digitally, also necessitated by the short lead time.)

compared to this fellow's gentle voice. oh that's better
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:25pm dez:

it's alive!!!!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:25pm Richard S:

The 1978 Superman is STILL the BEST superhero movie.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:26pm TehBadDr:

Certainly it has a life of it's own, and the souls that still dwell there!
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:27pm Emily:

Cosmic: you are so correct--we are still learning how to "bed music" effectively!
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:27pm Kate:

Bob and the organ. Should be the name of a short story.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:28pm cosmic matrix:

It's tricky. Or you could use sidechain compression (ducking). Sounds great!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:28pm TehBadDr:

One might say, he's an organist!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:28pm Richard S:

"Bob and his Happy Organ"
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:28pm Kate:

oh Richard. . .
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:29pm cosmic matrix:

Wild! Really cool. My hero.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:29pm TehBadDr:

Gotta give this guy some serious cred!
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:30pm Emily:

Thank you!! Will have to look into the sidechain compression...
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:30pm cosmic matrix:

Ooh, experimental panning!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:31pm Asheville Jon:

why are you guys so mad at Andy?
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:32pm Emily:

Asheville Jon: how long do you have?? ;)
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:32pm cosmic matrix:

Whoa!!! Those vocal registers!!!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:32pm TehBadDr:

Uh you should a have said, "put some earphones on"! Oh, but you did, I'll have to revisit with my Etyomics!
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:32pm Emily:

That hissing is the organ in the background!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:33pm kimzilla:

This guys voice was so interesting. He is mostly deaf, but I don't know if that is why his voice is so unique.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:34pm TehBadDr:

Organs hiss, so do analog synths.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:34pm kimzilla:

you have to visit @IRLWFMU on twitter and see the video of him playing up close, its amazing!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:34pm cosmic matrix:

Oooh! Electromechanical! But is that steam?
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:34pm Emily:

@TehBadDr: I didn't know that!
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:35pm Cathy M.:

Not steam, just wind blowing through the system.
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:35pm Emily:

It's the compressed air, I think? Going to the pipes...
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:35pm Emily:

Right--thanks, Cathy M!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:36pm cosmic matrix:

Ah yes. Cooooool
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:36pm dez:

such a beautiful setting!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:36pm TehBadDr:

Or voltage background noise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:37pm kimzilla:

name that tune!
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:38pm dez:

dammit i know this one
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:38pm Asheville Jon:

Ha Emily! Juat thought i'd ask, in case it was something "simple"
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:38pm Asheville Jon:

can't get it out of my head, ELO
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:39pm Emily:

@avlJon: nah, just an ongoing feud between two girls and the guy who won't stop insisting they wear bikinis on the air...SIGH.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:39pm cosmic matrix:

OMG the sound of the ghost light
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:40pm kimzilla:

You have no idea how many details about the organ had to be left on the "virtual" editing room floor. when he talks about the computer systems for the organ its amazing. We need a 2 hr show!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:41pm Asheville Jon:

ah, I see Emily.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:41pm cosmic matrix:

Yes, Kimzilla, please!!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:42pm Asheville Jon:

Kimzilla, what was the name of that tune?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:42pm kimzilla:

@Ashville Jon: I was hoping you knew!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:43pm cosmic matrix:

Or for making elephants dissappear!
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:43pm Asheville Jon:

i really wasn't paying that much attention. :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 7:44pm chris:

hi there. just tuned in to hear pipe organ! woo-hoo! i remember going to a pizza joint when i was a kid, called pizza & pipes. you got to eat pizza and hear people play a pipe organ (my fav was the chitty chitty bang bang theme). i think i cried when my mom told me the place was closing.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:44pm Asheville Jon:

i did throw out a guess though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:45pm kimzilla:

I am not the one to ask about music, when Paul was playing his first some by Kurt Vile, and then quickly learned that there is an ORIGINAL Kurt Vile...Kurt Weill. Sigh, this is why I have a talk show.
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:45pm dez:

i think you were right, jon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:46pm kimzilla:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 7:47pm common:

  Wed. 9/20/17 7:48pm Emily:

That and The Great Race. With...Tony Curtis?
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:48pm TehBadDr:

The big question is: can I go see a movie or band there now? Say Eraserhead, Blade Runner....
  Wed. 9/20/17 7:49pm dez:

Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:49pm cosmic matrix:

Ah, both those projection booth pictures are pure eye candy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 7:50pm chris:

i honestly don't remember where it was... it may have been Fresno. but the only one i can find now is in redwood city, so it might have been there... i was a kiddo. it was all magic to me.
Avatar Wed. 9/20/17 7:50pm Asheville Jon:
