Link to Life Magazine, then scroll through to pages 57, etc. There are a lot of other interesting articles in this special nostalgia issue. (Just close the pop-up offer to join.)

“Kewpie,” I think that one needs to be a member of Memory Lane to view that. Also, a photo that you linked on the Loew’s Sheridan page.

Judging by the official website, I don’t think that the Paradise is being used as frequently as its owners would prefer. Did the venue known as the Supper Club ever open?

Since I don’t get into the Bronx often was curious how often this venue was in use.

I actually had tickets, to what was to be opening night on Friday. According to the guy at the box office, there was some kind of dispute between the performance group and the promoter (maybe money-related.) I had no problems getting a full refund.

Hope this does not prove to be too big of a set back for this wonderful theater.

Being a Brooklyn boy, I only made it to the Paradise on one occasion. It was during the mid-1970’s, when I was dating a women from Inwood and Fordham Road was still a lively place on a Saturday night. By that time, the Paradise had already been divided, and would probably close soon thereafter. While I do not at all remember the movie that we saw, I was definitely dazzled by the sheer opulence of the place, even in its less than pristine state. Since the film we saw was being screened in the theater situated in the balcony, we also had a birds eye view of the beautiful ceiling.

So I hope the Paradise will soon rebound from this setback, and I hope to make it back some day.

Perhaps advance ticket sales weren’t sufficient? There’s a different concert scheduled for March 27th. We might just have to wait and see if that goes on.

This is great news LuisV. I do hope the Kings is next. Now if only a management company or some group would buy the Ritz Theatre in Elizabeth N.J. (for sale $3.8 million), then another treasure could start doing shows, concerts, classic films etc.

This theater seems to be finally up and running again. Today, NY1 did a live shot from the theater to celebrate its return to to regularly scheduled events under new management. Apparently, they have many events lined up from latin Concerts, Gospel choirs and Stephanie Mills among others. They panned the camera through the theater to show how beautiful the renovation is.

It looks like its finally in good hands, or at least better ones. Let’s hope that it is a great success. Next theater up? Loew’s Kings!
