Screen Scenes:Landmark Sunshine, NY, NY
When my daughter was at NYU in the late 90s, I watched the progress of renovations to a building on east Houston Street. The Landmark chain had bought the Sunshine Theater, an old vaudeville house. Every time we'd drive by, I'd say, "I can't wait for that place to open." The Landmark's Sunshine Cinema finally opened, with cafes and comfortable theaters. An independent film venue that always shows the latest and greatest. In 2004 I finally saw a film there. I've been back a couple of times, and it's always a pleasure.
