It's supposed to be 1944, but the first exterior view of the Astor Hotel shows two adjacent film theatres, the Astor and the Capitol, playing We Were Strangers (1949) and Scene of the Crime (1949), both of which premiered in New York City in July 1949. A few minutes later, another view shows the Astor playing Melody Time (1948), and the Criterion across the street playing Easter Parade (1948), both of which premiered in June 1948. See more »
