Storyline

Once she'd been a dancer. Now she lies on a sidewalk, her blood seeping into the snow. The detectives of the 87th precinct are learning about ice: in a mulitimillion dollar showbiz scam, in the glittering diamonds that spill out of a dead man's vest, in the veins of a small time pusher. As the detectives scramble for evidence, as the city shivers, a killer is one step ahead, and the heat is still on. Written by Anonymous

passable murder mystery in front of classy theatre
1 August 2003 | by (Milwaukee, Wis. USA) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly good murder mystery with plenty of 'red herrings' thrown in, but what interested me most was the location of the filming: the ornate theatre box office shown in many scenes. This unusual island box office had a dome of stained glass in intricate pattern, as did the entry doors. There is nothing as of this date in the sidebar links at the "film location" button to indicate anything, but the credits of the movie do list both Canadian and American locations. So, I looked through my books of theatres and confirmed from the photos on page 53 of the 1983 book "Turn Out The Stars Before Leaving" by John Lindsay to be the LOWE'S YOUNGE ST. theatre in Toronto, referred to as the "ELGIN" in the film. The other theatre scenes may or may not have been filmed there.
