Seriously, I REALLY do know Mark, not personally, but have met him in person a few times. He is most definitely a real person.

I’m sure that he already knows that Bway. Does the name Mark look like a pseudonym? Thats right “Warren”, we’re all the same person. That seems to be your typical defense when you get caught doing something wrong. Why should Mark have to email you “Warren”? You used and altered his photos without permission so why would he want to talk to you? If I was Mark, I’d have my lawyer contact you for copyright infringement. Its time for you to go “Warren” before you cause anymore trouble on this site.

MarkW is definitely a different and single person. He is not any of the other people here, I know him from a different forum, and is most definitely not any of the other people here, and can vouch for his credibility.

If “Mark W” needs to contact me, my private e-mail address is displayed (and always has been) at my membership page. There is no need for him to post complaints to the webmaster, if he really has. It might be “Lost Memory” or “mikemovies” hiding under another pseudonym. “Lost Memory” once changed pseudonyms four or five times in a single day.

Whatever the correct word is Ed, something has to be done with him. He attacks me for posting a legitimate link to a photo. At the same time, he uses and alters copyrighted material without permission. For an example, take a look at a comment “posted by Mark W. on Nov 8, 2006 at 8:12pm” on the Shore Theater page.

Lost, the word is “deportment”… which perhaps needs to be amended to “deportation” in his case.

I’m also fed up with his accusations and sarcastic comments. This has nothing to do with off topic messages. All I am doing is posting links to theater photos. I tried to ignore him and I tried turning the other cheek as was suggested. That doesn’t work. I didn’t mind when it was confined to the Ridgewood theater page, but he now follows me around the website. It seems that he has “diplomatic immunity”. At least thats how it appears to many people on this site. Does he receive ten warnings to our one? I thought the rules were applied equally to everyone. If he has nothing else to contribute besides his sarcastic comments, maybe a “vacation” from this website would help to improve his disposition.

I write this comment openly to Patrick and/or Ross and would like to know why it is that Warren continues to get away with wantonly aggravating other members on this site with no apparent provocation? Perhaps he has been privately admonished, but I see no contrition or abatement on his part. It may be Warren has been careful not to cross any “obvious” lines and becoming vulgar or explicit – but aren’t some of his comments of late even in the slightest bit reprehensible? Go check out his comments on the Beacon Theater page (CT #42) from November 6th towards Lost Memory and mikemovies and tell me I’m wrong.

As great as so many of his contributions over the years have been to this site, I am hard pressed to think of another individual member who has been the cause of more personal rancor on this site or wasted more bandwidth by belligerently haranguing folks over the nature of their contributions and comments.

I am getting pretty fed up with it.

I don’t understand how that comment got messed up. Perhaps ‘Warren" caused it. haha

Are the copyrighted photos in your photobucket being used with permission fella. Perhaps I will draft an email to photobucket.com and make some inquiries. Let us see how legal your photo’s are fella. You know even less about the law then you know about theatre’s. It would be impossible for ‘Warren’ to post the Ridgewood theatre photo’s right now since he doesn’t have possession of them. He is a fibber. A nasty trouble making fibber at that.

Cut the B.S. “Warren”. It is a legitimate photo on a website. If you purchase the photo, the Brooklyn Pix.com is removed from the bought copy. There is nothing illegal about linking to it. Are you annoyed that I found it and you didn’t? How are those opening day photos of the Ridgewood theater coming along? Ready to post them yet? We would all enjoy seeing them.

Yes, “Lost Memory” is so sharing. But I would call it a “hot” photo, since it is plainly marked as being under copyright to a Brooklyn agency. If “Lost Memory” had obtained it honestly by paying for its use, the markings would have been removed.

mikemorano on November 8, 2006 at 12:03 pm

Very cool photo. Thanx for sharing and not being selfish like another fella here.

Not sure if this photo was posted here before.

This photo is from the mid 1940’s. The caption reads “Loew’s Oriental Theater on 86th near Bay 19th Street”.

This website has a small color photo of the Loew’s Oriental Theater. The date given is “around 1989”.

Yet another recent view of the exterior can be seen at the very end of the new two-part article about Dyker and Bath Beaches, Brooklyn, at www.forgotten-ny.com

An article and recent photo of the Marshalls store located in this former theater is at this website.

Originally the theatre was made into a twin in the mid 70’s by splitting the orchestra and balcony sections.

Later in the early 80’s the balcony was split into two thus creating a triplex theatre. Two theatres above and a single theatre underneath.

YMike on July 11, 2006 at 11:02 am

The balcony was split into 2 theaters. The orchestra was untouched.

Bway on July 10, 2006 at 9:29 am

How was it cut up when they multiplexed it, two or three theaters in the old balcony?

RobertR on July 10, 2006 at 9:08 am

So some enterprising person could do something with the balcony theatres?

frankie on July 10, 2006 at 8:22 am

The last movie to play here was “A Pyromaniac’s Love Story.” A long way from “Moonstruck”, which I saw there one cold winter’s night !

YMike on June 19, 2006 at 4:49 am

It’s a Marshalls Dept. Store although only the first floor is being used.

ShortyC on June 19, 2006 at 4:36 am

What is currently happening to the theatre, what is there now?

Here’s an aerial view of the massive Oriental Theater building:
