The theatre stopped showing movies in the 50’s and the place sat empty 20 years.
I don’t know if others feel like I do but the number one thing for me would be a massive screen. Something so big you can’t duplicate it at home. There was a reason in the 50’s for Cinemascope & Cinerama. Even IMAX is tiny now.
It is dark and dreary and no longer looks like a movie theatre
A vintage picture of the theatre open has to exist somewhere
This got even worse, Regal is no better then UA.
To think Brooklyn once had 200 theatres
Nyer OMG you took the words out of my mouth. I said the same thing about GWTW 75th anniversary. Ho hoopla, no big celebration like for the 50th. I have been trying to find out if the showing yesterday was like the Wizard of Oz showings where all they did was project a DVD. The movie theatre business is DEAD and buried, any theatrical showings are just adertisement for the home DVD release.
The marquee is lit up with a for lease sign but I guess this is going to go retail :(
To me not advertising movies on the marquee is the stupidest idea I have ever heard. Why give up free advertising?
Now that the Fantasy has been renovated its going to be another nail for the Lynbrooks coffin.
Anything going on here? I keep hoping it reopens hate to see it closed
Do they ever have screenings here open to the public?
Have any updates been done here?
This closed as a Quad
Any theatre no matter how much business it does is in danger if the landlord has someone willing to pay more then a theatre can. The Pacific-City Cinemas people DROOL over the money to be made for Cinema 1-2-3 it will happen as soon as the right offer comes along.
Such a busy area surprising this cant make a go of it, very sad.
WOW amazing already
I remember this booking did HUGE grosses here
Like one of the old Trans-Lux newsreel cinemas
So sad a true piece of Americana
The East side used to be a BOOMING movie area. Other then the 3 films playing at Cinema 1-2-3 couldn’t this theatre have its pick of releases?
Wow I saw this double feature here. I LOVED this place
How very sad I hope it survives
