Movie theaters in movies :
This tale of cab driver, moviegoer (only for porn), who runs amock, has become a classic.
In a scene, Travis (Robert De Niro) takes his new girlfriend to the Lyric (great idea!), which had a wonderful sign back then (even better!), to see some soft porn (not as good!); she doesn't seem to like it.
When the two leave the theater, the Cine 42 can be seen on the other side of the street; it played Clint's "The Eiger Sanction".
Behind Travis who vainly tries to repair his terrible choice, on the right when exiting the Lyric, the sign of the Times Square:

The outside scenes of the main theater in Last Action Hero were shot in front the Empire; the Times Square and the Cine 42 also appear in it, as well as the Lyric (very briefly).
