The Power of Spiritual Artistry: Being True to Yourself
How do you live your truth? Go beyond perceived limits and reidentify with your true self in today’s service with Rev. Siobhan Claire.
While we’ve hit pause on Movies at the Palace, here’s a #throwback from yesteryear, when the Loew’s 175th Street Theatre (as we were once known) hosted Humphrey Bogart in person in 1949. This got us thinking about the other stars we wish we could bring to the stage... 

  1. Forrest Gump – We'd love to have Tom Hanks appear as Forrest Gump, but it’d be quick since he’d probably just run across the stage.
  2. One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961) – We have a general rule against dogs in the building, but for Pongo, Perdita and their pups we’d make 101 exceptions.
  3. Monty Python and the Holy Grail – We’d love to hear the tale of Sir Robin from Eric Idle himself, but it might be best to leave his favorite minstrels at home.
  4. Mamma Mia! – Which dialect would Meryl Streep use to lead an audience sing-along to ABBA?
  5. Jurassic Park – We’ll risk the danger of chaos theory to have a T-Rex and Goldblum join us onstage, although we’d need to beef up security for one of them.   
Honorable Mention: The Big Sleep (1946) – Of course we’d love for Bogie to make a return appearance, especially if he brought Bacall. They’d light up the stage, even if they just talked about horses.

These flicks are probably streaming somewhere right now, so you can watch them today at home even if you don’t have a 50-ft screen, state-of-the-art projection, and 3,400 seats. But when things return to normal, we’d love to have you back to watch classic movies the way they are meant to be seen: in a movie palace. Until then, keep those phones on silent and enjoy the picture without interruption. Pass the popcorn!
