Great! Perhaps the facade can be salvaged and donated as well. It can be reused, rather than feeding a landfill.

Please still try to encourage the developer to donate some facade elements then.

Salvage as much as possible at the very least, but try convincing developer to build around it or even move the building. If the theater in part or in whole is donated to a non-profit, the owner would be eligible for a tzx write-off. It’s not too late. Keep trying even when the end seems near. Good luck!

The the article ays the theater’s upper facade is intact, but please realize the terra cotta on the lower facade is as well, beneath the display cases and aluminum siding which can be removed easily.

I have contacted Patrick Crowley directly, and hope he will post the press release I composed with Al on the homepage. Landmarking is another issue, and I understand that someone could have submitted it.

Thanks, Lost Memory!

Ridgewoodguy123: Can you please tell me who owned it before and who the owner is right now. Did you speak with the current owner? The owner can generate lots of income if he leased some of the theaters to a theater/performing arts non-profit. It can be a star venue in Ridgewood, and still show films in some of the theaters. Why in the world would he prefer retail? Isn’t there enough stores on that block and along Myrtle Ave? The Ridgewood Theatre is a distinctive historical building, and this is a UNIQUE opportunity. Many of us feel it should be treated as such.
