I find it hauntingly sad and depressive, a sign of “modern” times.

ERD commented about This is Cinerama (2011 Trailer) on Jun 4, 2011 at 7:45 pm

I remember when “THIS IS CINERAMA” was presented at the Ziegfeld theatre back in the 1970’s. I was there for its first showing. Before the movie began, the elderly Lowell Thomas, with two pretty girls at his side, took a bow from the front of the auditorium.

The theatre was at 308 Commrie Avenue (30A).The first photo show on the new site is not accurate.

The photo should be taken from New Utrecht Avenue as that is where the marquee was.

It is too bad that so many people have never see how beautiful this theatre was at one time. Still, we are lucky to have some imaginative and creative peple who have been able to save and restore some of our movie palaces. It’s a different world now!

ERD commented about Loew's 46th Street Theatre on Feb 6, 2011 at 10:12 am

I still remember the occasional stage shows when it was the theatre was owned by Loew’s. As a child, I performed on the stage in a Happy Felton “Knot Hole Gang” talent show. The “Knot Hole Gang” was a club sponsored by the Brookln Doger’s. Various groups would meet on Sat. mornings at their neighborhood Loew’s theatre.) Unfortunately even then, this beautiful theatre was not well kept. For Loew’s their goal was was how much profit they could get from each theatre they owned.

ERD commented about Kings Theatre on Dec 25, 2010 at 11:28 am

Architectually, the Kings is far superior to the auditorium of Broolyn Tech. I don’t know how the two can really be compared. As far as rehabiliting the Kings, that remains to be seen. It certainly would become a treasure for many generations to enjoy.

The Tamapa is a stunning looking theatre. I am so glad this movie palace was spared. The organ sounds wonderful. To attend The Tampa theatre is a wonderful experience for all ages.

While I know it may sometimes be difficult to get, I wish more photos of the interior of the theatres should be posted on Cinema Treasures.

ERD commented about Huffington Post lists 10 most beautiful US theaters on Oct 27, 2010 at 10:02 am

I agree with the above posts, what criteria did they use to make their choices? I don’t think they’ve checked out all the theatres that were restored in the U.S.
Also, why aren’t interior photos of the theatres shown.

At least someone fixed up the facade and made it presentable. It looked so neglected before.

Antiquelover, thanks for posting your photos of the former Loew’s 46th Street auditorium. I remember when it was in decent condition. I, and am sure other members, would enjoy seeing more pictures of the stage and proscenium arch. It’s like seeing the ruins of an entertainment era that is gone.

I have signed the petition and passed it on to friends. What a shame it would be to lose the Winter Garden Theatre.
