Ziegfeld Theater. Copyright © 2016, SVJ Designs LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Indiewire has a story about some of the movie industry's influential people, such as directors Martin Scorsese, Ava DuVernay, and Spike Lee, paying their respects for the Bow Tie Ziegfeld Theater in New York City, which closed this month:

I know that things come to an end, but for someone who grew up in an earlier era, this particular ending is quite a sad one. It means a lot to me that we did the "Vinyl" premiere there at the Ziegfeld.
