This theater’s name sounds “streamlined” or Googie-esqe, but the theater is not streamlined at all!

The Tivoli theater has been demolished in October I think.

This one was apparently fabulous. Does Famous Players own any other classic theatres?

Magiclantern, it IS an interior view. The caption was just a typo.

It still looks awsome, though. Even for a medical office. I mean, have you seen one that cool before?

br91975,

As I’ve thought many times, what’s gone is gone, and there’s nothing we can do about it.

How is the auditorium now used? Is the original marquee still there?

What is a ‘fake wall’?

If this is in Times Square, my book says that it showed Zamba and Black Shadows-both thrillers. Am I correct about its location? I’m only 10 years old, so I’m……well…just not as smart as you older folks. I admit it. Please reply, somebody!

The Seven Ups performed here. This is NEONIZED Art Deco. Way to give a signage spasm to a theater structure.

Only one thing left to say or do (hint hint)– Donate it to the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio!

Gee whiz, I haven’t heard of this one either! If only it would’ve survived, I would have given anything to see a movie here! (I’ve never even been to a drive in.)
