Loew’s Paradise Theater
Enough people have already submitted their experiences of going to the “movies” at the Paradise, one of the greatest movie theaters ever.
Of course, the ceiling in the theater with it’s twinkling stars was magical. Some are too young to know that it originally had stage shows along with the movie in the old days. Very much like Radio City Music Hall. And that gorgeous baroque staircase to the balcony.
Did anyone mention the goldfish? There were pools (3 or 4) of huge goldfish in the lobby.
If The Paradise is not restored and saved it will be the shame of New York, just as the demolition of Penn Station was. So Bronxites, what can we do?
