Rialto Theater of Westfield Offers Live Night of New York Comedy

Digiplex New York Comedy Series, Wed., May 25, 2011, 8 p.m.; Movie Theaters Are Not Just for Movies Any Longer

WESTFIELD, NJ--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - There's something new coming to a movie theater near you and it has nothing to do with movies. The Rialto Theater of Westfield, purchased last fall and converted to digital projection, is planning a live Digiplex New York Comedy Series, Wednesday, May 25, 2011. Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets for $20 can be purchased at the box office or online at The address is 250 East Broad Street, Westfield, N.J.

The Comedy Series will continue June 28, July 25, Aug. 23, and Sept. 29. Check the website for performers and show times. Advance tickets are available to all shows.

The 90-min. performance features three stand-up comedians from the hottest comedy clubs in Manhattan:

Sandy Marks - a verbose and rambling fast-paced stand-up comedian who has appeared on the CBS sitcom The King Of Queens, and HBO's summer festival Comedy In The Park.

Jon Fisch - A staple of the New York scene and a favorite on Comedy Central and VH1, he is a prolific monologist with universal appeal, often focusing on the idiosyncrasies of city living. At the Gotham Comedy Club, he was hand-picked to open for Jerry Seinfeld.

Lynne Koplitz - A regular at comedy clubs nationwide, she was a featured comedian on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, and guest starred on NBC's Extra and NBC's The Other Half.

The Rialto Theater of Westfield, along with the theater in Cranford, N.J. and Bloomfield, Conn., are the first three Digiplex Destinations theaters in the nation. They are the foundation of a chain of all-digital theaters that digital theater pioneer and entrepreneur A. Dale "Bud" Mayo is building across the U.S. with his team at Digital Cinema Destinations Corp., located above the Rialto Theater of Westfield.

In addition to commercial movies, Digiplex theaters offer a full range of alternative programming such as pop concerts, live sports events, motivational talks, religious ceremonies, and children's series.
