Former NY Movie Palaces

NEW YORK, NY — They may still be standing but just as shells of their former selves. Flavorwire looked at 19 NY movie palaces that have been adaptively reused such as the Paramount and the Oriental.
(Thanks to Tinseltoes for providing the photo.)
Only about a half of the 19 could remotely be considered having been palaces. Strangely, none of the examples shown are now supermarkets. Be interested to know the breakdown of former theaters as churches, Modell’s, super drug stores, supermarkets, etc.
