The Crystal Palace (a/k/a Polanaise Terrace) has closed as of 9/30/2013.The building will soon be demolished and turned into a high-rise of condominium apartments.
Woodhull Hospital now stands in that spot. Here is some trivia for you: the abandoned lot (formerly know as the Alba Theatre) is can be seen in the santa claus French Connection foot-chase scene (do you pick your feet in Poughkeepsie CT?)
November 30th tell all your friends….35mm Double Feature: Blues Brothers and Animal House..
That theatre must have been so ornate, my heart breaks for its loss.
Sadly this sort of thing happens…I am a frequent visitor to The Palace and thank heaven that it is still open and operating at its full glory!
Hello all I am happy to report that I was here again on September 18th for Zombiegeddon.I am thoroughly convinced that I am in love with The Palace Theatre..they don’t make them like this anymore.
I was just here at this place on April 20th for a showing of Big Lebowski and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas..the mens room has a very low ceiling.

Very true Al….Dear Cineplex Odeon, back in 1997 I knowingly stole a gold curtain from the Cineplex Odeon Art Greenwich, a theatre of yours located at the time of the theft at 97 Greenwich Avenue.I humbly aplogize as I was very inmature at the time and was inconsiderate of your feelings and property. I am a different person these days and would never convieve of committing another act like that.
my aopologies for the first 2 inactive links or whatnot thankyou tinyurl
back in 1997 during a showing of Daylight, my friend Paul dared me to take the 10 foot tall by 10 foot wide gold curtain on the wall from here…it was barely hanging from the back wall…I put it under my coat and walked out as non-descript as possible….to this day its part of my backdrop for online pictures..
The Regent theatre’s marquis can be seen in the opening credit picture montage in “Back to School”. The 1985 film starring Rodney Dangerfield. The following can be read… “MISS THIRD AVE BEAUTY CONTEST TODAY PLUS WESTERN”..the Third Avenue El can be seen as well in front of the theatre….
Thank You to the CT community for the additional information pertaining to this theatre.
