Loew’s Jersey Theater
This show stopping venue with old-fashioned charm, is the gem of Journal Square and holds a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. After serving as a cinematic hot spot for 57 years, the Theater closed its doors in 1986 and remained virtually deserted for about a decade. Today, the Theater is maintained entirely by volunteers from “Friends of the Loew’s” in order to protect its history and beauty. This past fall, the theater was used for production of Todd Phillips film “The Joker,” which came out in early October. Currently, its main purpose is to serve its community as an arts and entertainment center for the diverse people who live in Jersey City.
Friends of the Loew’s is of the opinion that the historic Loew’s Jersey Theatre must serve the local community as a non-profit hub for the arts and entertainment that raises the profile and significance of the performing arts in the lives of the numerous ethnic groups residing in Hudson County and the surrounding area. It must make an effort to offer a wide range of high-quality programming that dissolves artificial barriers separating various performance disciplines, barriers that impede many people, especially young people, from fully appreciating and experiencing the great diversity of performance art. The top achievements in popular stage and film arts in America must be highlighted in this programming.
