About Bernard “Bernie” Myerson

Born in the Bronx, exhibition pioneer Bernard Myerson worked with Loews Corp. starting in 1963, when he was hired to operate the theatre side of the business after its acquisition from MGM by Larry and Bob Tisch. During Myerson’s time at Loews he was one of the first exhibition heads to see the wisdom of turning older theatres into multiplexes, as well as building new multiplexes in suburban shopping malls. Myerson worked extensively with Variety The Children’s Charity, the Will Rogers Memorial Fund and Motion Picture Pioneers until his death in 2002 at the age of 84.
