I can’t believe this place is still sitting empty.

Sadly NA ignores this theatre for the cinder block mess next door.

It has never been updated in the opening but the theatre was reopened again after Loew’s on 2 occasions as an independent, if you read back I posted the information a few years ago.

The sad part is they tore the walls apart and now the place downstairs is a mess. I fear it wont be long till vandals destroy it or a fire breaks out like the Madison. Too bad Bow Tie Cinemas thought it was too much of an investment to reopen.

As an indie forget about them getting anything. If they use the main theatre as a mixed use facility but continue to show films, at least its keeping it open. I wonder about the multi-plex next door.

I drove by here last night and the marquee looked like the last days of the old 42nd Street houses. Most of it was burned out and whoever put the titles up did not center anything and there were loads of empty gaps. I have not gone here in a few years but the last time I did it was shabby and run down.

A pic of this as a theatre has not turned up yet?

And the last film to ever play the Music Hall, “The Promise” was also a Universal release.

Interesting about Univeral four walling to show their product, thats the first I have heard of that.

Someone needs to have some vision and open a drive-in on Long Island again. Westbury still made money to the day it closed.

Would LOVE to see an Elizabeth Taylor tribute here. Raintree County and Cleopatra need to be seen in a theatre to be appreciated.

The inside pictures look that this could almost have been easily quaded. Century’s did announce the Brook was going to re-open as a quad but it never happened.

I wonder if this church ever thought of buying the much larger Ridgewood Theatre?

AMC is letting this fall to crap, the vertical and marquee have so many burned out bulbs.

RobertR commented about RKO Keith's Theatre on Mar 28, 2011 at 11:11 am

“The last BP who had any real power was Donald Manes”.

His protégé the equally crooked Claire Shulman sneakily has the 1939 Worlds Fair Amphitheatre torn down saying it was “dangerous”. The building was all brick and would have stood for 1000 more years. There were developers interested in producing shows there but many of the same people who kept shows out of the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium did not want shows done at Flushing Meadows. Ms Schulman is also directly responsible for the condition of the NYS Pavilion next to the Queens Theatre. She has been quoted as saying “we don’t need another museum in MY Park”.

I think its PATHETIC to edit this Oscar winning film. Doing an alternative DVD version is one thing but for theatres its just greed.

RobertR commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Mar 27, 2011 at 5:18 pm

With the sad passing of screen icon Elizabeth Taylor, its time for the Ziegfeld to show the 70mm print of “Cleopatra” that has been shown a few times on the west coast.

The 1975 marquee was beautiful but it looks like it was let go to hell by 1982
