I remember how small the ‘lobby’ was and the concession stand was directly behind the auditorium. This was definitely no palace but I saw ABBY, RUBY, SINBAD movies at this place.

I am wondering how long before they tear this down for new construction. The bodega that was next door for almost 50 years recently closed.

Was it closed due to poor attendance?

There is a building at 69 Graham Avenue,formerly Schecter’s Furniture store and it looks like it was a movie theatre. I will try and take a picture and post it.

What a shame there aren’t more vintage pictures of the interior of old movie theatre. My wish list: The Commodore,Williamsburgh,The Marcy, The Rainbow.

This place was always packed on weekends. But when David Lettermen moved to the newly-refurbished Sullivan Theatre the days were counting down for the New David.

My friends and I recently discovered this movie theatre. While it’s nothing to write about, d├ęcor-wise, it still has a sort of small town movie theatre feel to it.

Most people don’t want to go to the Bronx and there’s limited parking.

I added some new photos I took this evening. I want to go back with my camera and take better pics.

I sent an email to Pilgrim Church asking if I can tape some photographs.

I would love to see the interior of these: Williamsburgh Theatre, Commodore, Marcy, and Ridgewood. Any idea if al the interiors of a new theatre were photographed?

I am interested in the magazine that is all about the movie theater industry…I am interested in some Brooklyn, NY theaters like the Williamsburg and Commodore.

I have tried lately but why are some owners/managers against people taking pictures of interiors?

This building and some others have been demolished. I am sure they’re going to put up apartments. I will try and get there and take some pictures. The old Williamsburgh Playhouse, now a 99 cent store, is all that remains of the many theaters that once stood along Broadway.

There is indeed a gym, Blink Fitness, occupying the theater.

How I regret not going to this theatre more. I saw The Exorcist here and Saturday Night Fever and my mother dragged me to several stage shows.

I doubt the interior is still intact. I remember going to a DMV office located in what probably was the auditorium. As I recall the lobby was located on Jamaica and the theatre on the side street. Does anyone know what the interior was like?

Why only 12 years for such a brutal killing? Is that his picture at the top of the page? I don’t understand how the law works. Someone butchers a human being and they get anything short of life in prison…

I have read many comments that make mention of the year a building was constructed. I have searced ACRIS (NYC register site) but they only have info dating back to 1966.
