Jujamcyn Theaters, which owns and runs the St. James, rented out the facade of the building to the upcoming Glenn Close film "Heights" for one day. Instead of advertising the Mel Brooks' musical The Producers, the marquees briefly trumpeted "Diana Lane in Macbeth." Close stars as Lane. Also featured in the film, directed by Chris Terro and written by Amy Fox, are George Segal, Mia Farrow, Rufus Wainwright, Denis O'Hare, James Marsden and Elizabeth Banks. "Heights," A Merchant Ivory production, is due to be released in 2004.

Banks plays a photojournalist who "is forced to come to terms with a complicated relationship in her life." Close plays the mother of Banks' character, with Marsden as her fiancé.
