QUEENS, NY — Please click on the following link to sign a petition to save the Trylon Theater:

Save The 1939 Trylon Theater!!!

The petition:

To: Robert Tierney (Chair, NY Landmarks Preservation Commission) & Melinda Katz (Councilwoman, District 29)

The signers of this petition agree that the 1939 Art Deco/Moderne Trylon Theater (98-81 Queens Blvd, Forest Hills, NY) is one of the last standing structures which has a strong cultural, historical, & architectural significance to the 1939 World’s Fair, with its “Trylon & Perisphere” monuments. On behalf of residents and historical societies, it is of utmost importance to halt further demolition, restore what was lost during the conversion, preserve this icon, and officially landmark this truly rare gem of a theater!!!

I think this is all a shame. It was like a theft. I came to Hawaii in 1958 as a young college student. Needless to say I have been very happy here. But…I have seen many things that have ruined what was once a paradise and it has broken my heart. Losing our beautiful Waikiki 3 theater is like losing an old friend. I for one will not be frequenting the new stores…. That’s all we need…more pizza parlors and shoe stores… and a circus????? It may be ok for the tourists, but what about the people who live here….Give me a break!!!!
