One, two...


During the first of my two brief periods of residence in eighties Manhattan — 1985 — I was living here in the Lenox Hill area. Beneath the block on the corner of 2nd and E66th there existed, rather handily, this underground cinema. 

'85 was something of a vintage year for movies. I recall seeing the likes of Witness and Into the Night down there. 

Sadly, Beekman OneTwo appears to have closed. I had imagined that this might be a temporary consequence of the pandemic, but have since read that the box office sold its last tickets in 2019 and that, appropriately enough, The Farewell was to be the final feature presentation.
