wow as a born and bred Greenpointer…I love reading this and am inclined to do some research on my own….good job John!
Yes I must concur…great picture Bway!
I can’t wait to see the Insane Clown Posse there on 4/29…the triumphant return of The Dark Carnivial to the NYC area…Juggalos unite!
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.
Just seen “Michael Jackson:This is it” at the Alpine, lovely old theatre…..heres some (2) shots…
Mike that is an awesome story. Kenny Rogers is a bonafide counrty lehgend, I am proud to have seen him perform twice…How do you feel about his recent facial surgery procedure? Are you pro or con new Kenny Rogers?
Here’s the Alpine Theratre website for your CT perusal….I’m checking out This is it! whose coming with?
I am lucky that I went there on 10/3/2008 for Tokyo Gore Police that was also the night that my wallet fell out of my pocket.I didnt realize it until a few nights later- I traced my steps and realized thats where it was…so I called them up and they had it and it was intact…
Honest Honest people, I am sorry to see them go.
I got all reminiscent and decided to do some poking around online- apparently the Duff wasn’t the only New Jack City showing where there was some sort of violence…
Dave-Bronx, yeah thats probably true- I didnt do the math…he looked about 50ish when I was 16…so yeah he must be long retired by now..damn thats almost 18 years…wow!
Hey East Coast rememeber Alexanders…that was a fun place- remember the bowl of fries…Yes those days are now gone- but believe it or not Fulton is trying to inch itself back….There is an awesome cookie-cutter theatre on Court Street…12 theatres.I go there for movies after work. 1 stop away on the F line from my job.Getting back to the shooting- my parents didnt want to let me leave the house after the cops brought me home-I was 16 at the time and when the detectives brought me home- they took my parents to the side and told them what happenned-I remember this like it was yesterday.I was on lock-down for like a month.Another thing about the Duff was they didnt card me for “R”…Broadwaychris- if you were working that night, do you remember what the older-spanish detectives name …I think he was from the 84th precinct? I am wondering how he is doing after all these years- he was one really nice guy.
I was in the Duff seeing New Jack City that day,I just heard the gunshot, I told the cops all I knew…the detectives were even nice enough to give me a ride home back to Greenpoint. My theory was if I was going to see a movie with a predominantly black cast, I should see it in a predominantly black theatre- and Broadwaychris can probably atest to that fact….in fact I was probbably the only white kid in the joint. One of the many theatres I miss.Heres a picture of the Brooklyn store..
Happy 43rd Billburg…
I am sneaking up on 35 in a few months…
Next year I will tell people I am going on 26.
Hi Dorianne, How is your dad, I used to call him every week to see what he needed for my orange/ fruit punch machine. The theatre was always a good customer. Please relay these best wishes on behalf of Energy Beverage.
Heres the corner of Rockaway Parkway and Seaview Avenue,in Canarsie- a corner I have no business on these days-as all of my friends have all moved away:(
Here is a recent photo of the East 14th street portion of the empty lot,where the Jefferson theatre once stood.
