Taped to the door of 137 East Houston is this apology from the Landmark Sunshine Cinema.  The issue stems from a recent film screening gone awry with late-night noise problems.  Perhaps this is a fire drill of sorts in anticipation of next week’s premiere of I Kissed a Vampire.

The poorly-proofed letter reads:

“Dear Neighbors,

I would like to apologize for the disturbance and inconvenience you experience during the late afternoon and throughout the night.  On this occasion Paramount rented one of our auditoriums for a midnight promo screening of Paranormal Activity.  Unfortunately the event was ill organized and they did not expect that a big crowd would show up, and they did not give us all the detail I needed to ensure that I have enough staff on duty.

Moving forward I would like to find a solution that would make you more happy.  Given the fact that we are going to have some high level premieres in the coming weeks and month I would like to know from you what the issues are you are struggling most in terms of large crowds coming to Sunshine.  Please contact me on below number or swing by at the theatre so I can meet you in person and we can discuss future improvements.


Regine Bigler-Jacobs”
