I think that the “remove” option is sort of a replacement for the former “preview,” which allowed us to proofread our message before posting. Now, you have to post it without “preview,” but you can immediately delete it if you’re not satisfied. Then start a new one if you wish.

Here’s a link to B&W newsreel coverage of waiting lines for the 1945 Christmas Show: British Pathe

Thanks, Monika, I’ll check that out…I tried charting the address via Map Quest and got a correct view very quickly. Perhaps CT should consider dropping Google Maps and replacing it with Map Quest. Even when correct (or corrected), the Google views often seem to be well past “sell date.”

This is the store currently using the site. The address ia apparently correct, yet Google Maps shows nowhere near that: http://www.serviceslisted.com/profile/young-world-3

Status needs to be changed from “Closed” to “Demolished.”

The Google Maps view is incorrect, but with no option to “correct.” The Tivoli site was further south on 8th Avenue, now occupied by a Rite-Aid Store. The Blockbuster store is north of Rite-Aid.

The zip code for 37-80 Junction Blvd. is correctly listed here as 11368, according to the USPS website. So the cause of the problem with the Google View must be something else. Perhaps “37-80” has an error. The number “80” does seem a bit high for a building close to a corner. Does anyone know the name of the store currrently using the site? It must have a phone number that could be called for the address.

It’s possible that the zip code in the CT listing for the Corona Theatre is incorrect. I found that to be the case with Google Maps views for the Merrick in Jamaica and the Parsons in Flushing. Someone “corrected” those views wrongly, and they apparently can’t be corrected again.

Introductory Google Maps view shows the secondary Seventh Avenue side of the Winter Garden. The main entrance and main marquee are on Broadway.

Status needs to be changed from “Closed” to “Demolished.”… Tony V, many thanks for sharing your wonderful memories. When you checked attendance at Loew’s Lexington, how did it usually compare to that RKO 58th?

Doesn’t Google Maps provide visual coverage of Newburgh, NY? I was suprised not to find a street view when opening this listing.

The Google view displayed is nonsense, but has no option for correction.

Tinseltoes commented about RKO Keith's Theatre on Jun 3, 2011 at 6:39 am

With all the RKO Keith’s images that have been posted here over the years, why does the CT listing have to start off with a photo of a wall decoration in ravaged condition? Doesn’t make sense! Even a Google Maps exterior view of the current decaying building would be better.

Jeff, if you mean the MGM suspense movie “Jeopardy” with Barbara Stanwyck, I loved it! But I wouldn’t recommend watching it backwards, because you would know who the villain was. I’m unfamiliar with anything else entitled “Jeopardy.” Is it perhaps a board game?

Tinseltoes commented about Parsons Theatre on Jun 2, 2011 at 7:44 am

View is miles off the mark. Problem is probably due to incorrect zip code at the CT listing. The correct one is 11366, according to the USPS website.

Tinseltoes commented about Merrick Theater on Jun 2, 2011 at 7:32 am

I think that I’ve found the reason for the wrong view. The CT listing for the Merrick has an incorrect zip code. The correct one for 163-06 Jamaica Avenue is 11432, according to the USPS website.

I hate the new system of reverse chronology. It’s like having to read a book backwards. When someone raises a question, you are likely to read the answer before you get to the query.

The view displayed is incorrect, but has no option for fixing. It appears to be not even in Jamaica, but in Woodhaven.

The view displayed is incorrect, but has no option for correction. Someone apparently “corrected” it incorrectly! What does one do in a case like this? The view doesn’t even show the correct side of Jamaica Avenue! The Jamaica Theatre was on the south side of Jamaica Avenue, as were the Carlton, Alden, Merrick, and Savoy.

Thanks for confirming that, T-Man! I entered the address independently in a Google map search, and came up with the same image. Which suggests that Google is serving up many views that are way out of date. What did actually replace the theatre, or is it a project still in progress?
