ERD commented about Loew's 46th Street Theatre on Jun 27, 2009 at 5:31 pm

The orchestra floor was leveled and the seats removed so furniture could be stored there. The 46th Street had concerts there in its last few years before closing in 1973.

The building in Lost Memory’s 1968 photo is the Blythborne post office. Enjoyed jloew’s informative post. I didn’t realize the organ was still there at that time. Like so many theatres, what a shame it is gone, a sign of the “modern” times.

I hope the proper people can collectively get their act together and effectively restore this unique theatre soon. Time is passing.

Just saw an interior photo of the restoration. The theatre looks beautiful.

The photo must be from 1986 since it is showing the movie DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS

ERD commented about Loew's Oriental Theatre on Apr 20, 2009 at 8:26 pm

How sad it must be to see, like so many wonderful movie theatres. Many of us who are old enough are lucky to remember them. I have so many wonderful memories of attending the Oriental. When I moved out of Brooklyn, New York City had greatly changed and lost a lot of its charm to me.

I agree with Warren. Notic that the headlight are on all cars and taxis. “Roxy” Rothafel gave some ideas that were incorporated into the design of RCMH, such as the idea for the “sunburst stage (I read that he got the idea when he was taking an ocean cruise and was watching the sun setting) but he is not the designer.

Plenty of showmanship and style in that program. Makes you want to attend that theatre. I appreciate S. Porridge letting us see it.

Steve Morris looks like a very kind person. I hope the Gem Theatrre continues for a long time to entertain the area. It’s an attractive theatre.

Hope this theatre is restored before it becomes too late. I am sure it can have many uses to serve the community.

RCMH remains one of the most beautiful theatres in the world. I hope it always continues to be well taken care of. It is a treasure that future genrations should be able to see and enjoy.

Attractive facade which still maintains its original appearance. I hope someone can post a photo of the auditorium.

ERD commented about Loew's 46th Street Theatre on Jan 22, 2009 at 3:56 pm

For thirty-six years the auditorium has been a storage area for furniture. The orchestra was leveled, and the ceiling is in bad shape, as are the surrounding ornaments. Remembering the theatre’s appearance when I was young, this photo makes me very sad. As I mentioned before, the real estate is valuable in this area. Someday the building will be razed. This ultra-religious community will never allow it to become a theatre again. The people once supported such cultural things(including myself)have all moved away.

I am interested in the information given by C.T. members, not their life style.

Child star Bobby Breen not only appeared on the Radio City Music Hall stage, but appeared on the Roxy stage with Eddie Cantor.

I don’t remember any of the decorations in the auditorium, only the usherette screaming at us children on the weekend shows.
