Trylon Theater Research Project needs help

posted by NativeForestHiller on August 22, 2006 at 9:43 pm

QUEENS, NY — Hi Everyone! This is Michael, founder & chair of the Committee To Save The Trylon Theater. I am in the midst of doing research on the Trylon Theater.

As you may recall, we are an advocacy group that is encouraging landmark status & effective adaptive re-use of an Art Deco 1939 World’s Fair gem. It is located at 98-81 Queens Blvd, Forest Hills, NY. Please assist me with the following:

  1. I would appreciate it very much if someone can please post a list of as many films as possible that were featured at the Trylon, preferably between Dec 26, 1939 (its opening) and late Dec 1999 (its closing). Any advice would be appreciated.
  1. Interview:
    A. Full name (or anonymous), title/affiliation (if applicable), & residence(s)
    B. What are two of your most memorable experiences at the Trylon?
    C. How did viewing films at an Art Deco historical building make you feel, or how did it enhance your movie-going experience?
    D. What did the Trylon mean to the community?
    E. What films do you recall being a major sell-out?
    F. Any additional contributions to this interview would be highly appreciated. If you can recommend someone else who may be of help, that would also be great.

I will share my project with you once it’s complete. Please e-mail me at . Thank you!
