Note

Going to the Ziegfeld is like stepping back in time to the golden era of epic movie theater palaces. In fact, Cinema Treasures says the 1,131-seater, based on plans by Emery Roth & Sons, "was one of the last big palaces built in the United States." The Ziegfeld shows only one film at a time (and hosts many premieres), sports lavish chandeliers, red velvet drapes and gilded trim. Right now, the theater is screening Lincoln and fighting rumors that it will close.—Jen Chung
