Rally To Save The ‘39 Trylon Theater; Sun, Oct. 23rd; 2 PM to 3 PM!!!
DATE: Sunday, October 23rd
TIME: From 2 PM – 3 PM
LOCATION: Trylon Theater; 98-81 Queens Blvd, Forest Hills, N.Y.
Please join us in solidarity for a lawful & peaceful expression of our concerns.
**Points of the rally:
1. LANDMARK the ‘39 Trylon Theater; a last standing structure which bears strong significance to the 1939 World’s Fair.
2. PRESERVE the presently intact Art Deco facade, glass block projection tower (which once illuminated Queens Blvd.), & the marquee.
3. RESTORE what was lost during a summer 2005 conversion, despite an active construction violation & stop work order since April 2005. The Trylon Theater’s architectural features distinguish it as one of NY’s notable works of Modernism.
4. ADAPT the site for the Education Center For Russian Jewry, with a preservation-minded re-use strategy, rather than demolition.
(Participants: Historians, preservationists, community residents, as well as residents of neighboring boroughs, politicians, possible FH celebrities, the media, & members of The Committee To Save The Trylon Theater.)
