Related Strips: #554: The Disillusionist
Sorry, bit of a tease with this strip, but the first panel took me a little while to do.
The theater is the Music Box Theatre, of course. It is actually showing The Illusionist and Nora's Will at the moment. It opened in 1929 and seats about 800 people, making it a little over half the size of the Patio Theatre. The Music Box's two screens show a mix of art house, foreign, and classic movies. Its original screen was spared the fate of the Davis's and remains intact, but they have managed to add a tiny, second screen by expanding into the storefront adjacent to the theater.
Here is a Flickr set with my reference photos of the Music Box. You can also vote at TopWebComics to see an enlarged view of panel 1.
Jason is watching The Illusionist, of course.

They’re showing all kinds of too much in this teaser trailer, I think, but it looks pretty great… despite the stupid character designs on the villains. (I was one of those people who enjoyed Marc Webb’s first Spider-Man flick quite a bit; the major clunky parts being where they seemed to think they needed to change up Uncle Ben’s death and other bits of canon, just to make it different from Raimi’s version.)
Bonus points: this is the best Spidey’s costume has ever looked in film. I hope Sony never changes the suit again (unless they do the black costume for a movie or two).
