Hawthorne Theater opened in 1928, making it one of the first movie houses established in the area. And though at almost 90 years of age the space is older than most buildings in North America, it's recently undergone major renovations to keep up with modern technology. According to an interview with owner Jack Sayegh at NorthJersey.com, the fully digital five-screen cinema was outfitted with new carpeting and chairs, Real D and 3-D movie equipment, Dolby Surround Sound in all theaters, and human ticket-takers to replace the outdated robot ones. The article also cites that the theater?which has been independently owned since 1980?is maintained by Jack's father, uncle, and cousin, reinforcing its family-friendly nature.
Arthur Murray Dance Studio has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with other classmates as the instructors assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
Set in the scenic mountains of Sussex County, Rock, Ribs, and Ridges celebrates Southern-style rock-and-roll and the powerful, spicy sauces of nationally renowned barbeque. Guests take in two full days of Dixie-infused musical acts from veteran and up-and-coming performers while nibbling a savory slew of barbecued meats. Competitors vie each year for the title of Best Ribs and Best Sauce, as well as for the grand prize of the world’s largest Wet-Nap.
The New Jersey Jackals, who play at Yogi Berra Stadium, are a professional baseball team in the independent Canadian American League. These bright diamond dogs could be tomorrow's pros; former members who have found success in the majors include Oakland A's pitcher Craig Breslow and New York Mets southpaw Raul Valdes. From the box-seat section, you’ll be close enough to smell the freshly cut grass and hear the catcher tell anecdotes about iron lungs.

Since 1964, students of Rose's School of Dance have learned the timeless art of graceful footwork. Today, the schedule of classes represents a mix of old and new styles, and includes hip-hop as well as classic ballet and jazz. Though dance trends may change, the musical accompaniment remains the same; unlike many studios, Rose's School of Dance still boasts a live piano player during ballet, pointe, and tap lessons.
Edie Ollwerther grew up a touring dancer, with television and teaching credits to her name. When she married, she took a break—but it wasn't long before neighborhood parents knew of her history in dance. They encouraged her to begin giving lessons to their children, and Edie obliged by transforming her basement into a studio space.
That was in the 1970s. Today, Edie and her fellow instructors—some of whom are former students, now grown—act as the heads of a continually growing family of dancers. Their curriculum encompasses tap, jazz, ballet, and musical theater, as well as vocal coaching and hip-hop routines. Some of their pupils learn to shimmy as a hobby, and others aim to join the competition team, whose performances have taken them to Disney World and aboard a Carnival Cruise ship.
Uniquely residing indoors, the marquee at Fabian 8 Cinema evokes nostalgia with its towering lights and brick façade, even as it flashes the current features in digital print. Within the actual theaters, viewers recline in high-backed rocker seats, arranged in extra-wide stadium configurations for maximum comfort and cowering space during scary scenes. Serving eyes a veritable feast of motion pictures, first-run features spring from the latest in digital cinema technology, augmented by digital and 3-D technologies.
Opened in 1924, the Lafayette Theatre first ushered filmgoers into the swashbuckling world of the French Revolution with the silent classic Scaramouche. And the movie palace, which is appointed with a grandiose French and Italian Renaissance style, has remained a Suffern touchstone by introducing 3D technology, CinemaScope, and, in the late 1980s, the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. These days, jaunty organ tunes precede Friday- and Saturday-night features inside the renovated, single-screen theater, which specializes in first-run Hollywood flicks and classic cinema.
One of the "great places to revel in cinematic grandeur," according to USA Today, the 942-seat theater surrounds visitors with ornate touches like a crystal chandelier, a red velvet curtain, and opera booths sans distracting Muppets.
Katy Fischer picked up ballet when she was 3 years old and never stopped tapping her toes. Now, with more than 30 years of dance instruction to her name, she and Russ Fischer impart ballroom and Latin dance wisdom to couples wishing to learn the waltz, swing dancing, and cha-cha. Each Friday night, the Fischers host dance socials where couples can show off their dance chops.
Within the walls of the Farview Fire Company firehouse, the instructors of Best Foot Forward Dance Center guide children and adults through ballroom, latin, and swing-dancing moves. Students can attend private or group lessons, and can show off newly learned skills during dance socials complete with DJs and refreshments.
Adrienne Logan is a dance guru, and she's got the resume to prove it; she was a student of Fred Kelly (Gene Kelly?s brother), studied at the Broadway Dance Center and Steps on Broadway, and she's now the owner of Just off Broadway. Along with a faculty of talented dancers, she leads classes for students of all ages in disciplines such as jazz, musical theater, and tap. Aspiring ballerinas can study under resident ballet maestro Andrea Kron, who studied at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center, performed in Radio City Music Hall, and danced as a Rockette. Like eating a bowl of pure cane sugar for dessert, the need to dance has no age limit, which is why the staff also leads dance classes for adults, as well as fitness classes such as Pilates, Zumba, and barre fitness.
Once commonplace in American moviegoing, the revival house itself now needs a revival. Enter Rosebud Theatre, whose single screen is solely dedicated to the films of Hollywood?s Golden Age?the theater even draws its name from one such film, Citizen Kane?s famed sled. Built around a new theme each month, the theater?s programming ranges from classic musicals such as Yankee Doodle Dandy to foreign staples such as Jacques Tati?s inventive Mr. Hulot?s Holiday. The intimate 94-seat theater shows every movie digitally, which allows CGI dinosaurs to roam Charlie Chaplin?s movies just as he always intended.
Though now known as Westwood Cinema, the classic marquee that hangs above its front entrance still bears its original name: Pascack. It opened under this name in 1928 as a venue for film and vaudeville performances. The theater would survive the decline of vaudeville and adapt to the audience's interests, upgrading from a single screen to four, and ending the tradition of prefacing every screening by giving away war-era jobs. Now, the cinema fills those four screens with first-run Hollywood hits.
Allwood Cinemas is a 60-year-old Market Street institution that airs first- and second-run flicks. Newly re-opened and renovated, Allwood Cinemas supplements its discount films with classic concessions such as popcorn, soft drinks, hot dogs, and singing candy bars. Upcoming releases include action films, comedies, kid's movies, and dramas.
