For Colored people…
I think they may be referring to the Acme.
The Alhambra disappeared from the RKO listings after a Thanksgiving 1964 run of “Cleopatra”
Ed, I did see those but we closed both the National and Warner for the filming. “Death” walks out the front door of the Warner at one point and interiors with ‘the kid’ (he was actually in his late teens) I believe were mostly done inside the National.
Another location missing the intro.
In New York there was a big morality drive that closed many silent theatres when they were accused by Christian groups of being the source of spreading diseases, the abduction of white women, drug use, and pretty much every other vice they could pin onto the mostly Jewish industry.
“The Last Action Hero” featured the National interior and the Warner (Rialto) and Times Square exteriors.
That Regines store in the Google map above sure looks like a theatre building.
I just noticed that the NEWS ABOUT THIS THEATRE link on the right of this page has a link from 2009 with a photo and information that dates this theatre back to at least 1908.
The intro has also gone missing.
The Grand Street theatre on Chrystie and Grand was operating in 1923. I have not entered it to CT as I can find nothing else about it.
The Grant/Jewel at 11 West 116th Street and the Argus/Regent at 385 Third Avenue are already identified as Koehler sites.
This very deceptive ad, that promotes “THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK” as light comedy, was the Cameo’s only Roadshow attraction. According to Variety, it was also one of the few successful runs for “Anne Frank” outside of new York.
Ad for the 50th Street Cinema during its Avant Garde film stage.
Thanks Eileen, I was wondering where the Riverside and Riviera were in that photo.
It was simply NOT on FIFTH AVENUE.
How very New York and
THAT was the point….!
The Google map view above is trying to leave the city.
Ed, this theatre was running some daily changes in late December 1977. If you can find listings for December 21 or 22 you may have the answer. By December 23 they had opened “OUTRAGEOUS!” for a week.
What happened to this theatre’s intro?
The Arcade opened in 1919 and closed as the Cinema Studio 1 & 2 in 1990.
Ed, in December 1978 the Cinema Village was showing something called “Beatles Around the World”. Could that have been it?
Ed, it mostly played second run in the late seventies.
“Plein Soleil” was later successfully remade in English as “The Talented Mr. Ripley”.
I know the neighborhood was wild but in many ways that kept the competition out and audiences loyal. I ran similar theatres for Cineplex Odeon but Loews ran away from those neighborhoods in the 80’s.
Jnova, please tell us more. This theatre is historic part of NYC.
