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.

I love the Landmark theaters we have here in Minnesota. They're often our only chance to see Oscar-worthy movies. And our Landmark Uptown shows exclusive engagements of limited-release movies.

It would be great, though, to have a nice big one with a cafe. Oh well, that's what I get for living in the middle of the country. :-)

I hear ya Nayana. The movie - food combo is kinda lost here in RI as well, NYC does it well!
