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?)

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!

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.

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..
