Greenpoint commented about New Colored Theater on May 21, 2007 at 1:34 am

Ken, could this have been part of the “Chitlin Circuit”?

Greenpoint commented about Atlas Park Stadium 8 on May 21, 2007 at 1:31 am

Well its looks like Bway Chris beat by a year on adding this theatre ….I’ll go halves on the curse.

Some of the contractors who built the theatre used to eat their lunches at Yermans Pub on Cooper/Aubrey..they were in there,that they are memorialized with their own names engraved on brass plates on top of the bar.

So I wonder when Jimmy was going to put me and my friends name on the bar..we do play on the bar team and are steady customers?

Greenpoint commented about Oasis Theatre on May 21, 2007 at 1:04 am

Good job on the vid:
I’m going to friend you…that took me back in time bigtime…in fact that black kid who skates into the frame looks like my friend Nils (or Emmanuel Lewis from Webster)

But seriously its good to see stuff from back in the day: before the hipster invasion-back when it was just neighborhood folks(not transplants from nebraska) having a pizza party and breakdancing with the occasional skating!

Greenpoint commented about Oasis Theatre on May 21, 2007 at 12:45 am

I went here in 6th grade (1985).I had no idea it was ever a movie theatre…i did borrow $5 from my friend Nils and forgot about it until now (so how much is $5 after 22 years really worth?)

Greenpoint commented about Route 66 Drive-In on May 9, 2007 at 10:44 pm

I am seriously considering taking a trip out i have never been to a drive-in ever!

Greenpoint commented about Kwun Chung Theatre on Dec 8, 2006 at 7:45 pm

Greenpoint commented about NCG Peachtree Corners on Nov 16, 2006 at 1:49 am
It’s $6.50 to get in.

I spend $11. the other night to see The Return!

Greenpoint commented about Loew's Kings Theatre to be saved on Nov 16, 2006 at 1:43 am

The King was featured in the 1995 film Sleepers, which was coincidentally filmed in my neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY.
The black gangster who was helping Brad Pitt and his friends convict the ex-detentional facility guards, who raped them as minors.

Its awesome that they saved The King…I can’t wait to jump on the bus and check out a flick or two….I miss the Commodore more and more each day=-I would totally be there every weekend for $6 a
double-feature.(RIP Commodore Theatre-2001)

Kudos to The King,

Greenpoint commented about Search of former Philadelphia theater discovers silent film treasures on Nov 16, 2006 at 1:34 am

That is so amazing! I love hearing that kind of stuff-Silent film was a true artform. I was watching a tv documentary about Making a Silent Film.It pointed out how you could have had construction or other decible blaring noise going on in the backround… when you were filming and it wouldn’t intefere with the film!

Quiet on the set indeed!

Greenpoint commented about Fullerton Community saves landmark Fox Theatre on Nov 16, 2006 at 1:03 am

Good Job everybody! We need to keep these theatres around!
They are our cinematic history!
We cannot let them disintergrate as old films have and continue.
The memories might fade but we can’t allow these legends to!

Greenpoint commented about 8th Avenue Theatre? on Nov 16, 2006 at 1:00 am

Thankyou very much Pmullins…was it a fun place.
the only time I was in one of those theatres,
I almost got molested in the mens room..that was the Harem on 42 in ‘94 and I was 19 years of blonde dynamite!

Thankyou Greenpoint

Greenpoint commented about Forum Theatre on Aug 2, 2006 at 5:03 pm

Greenpoint to the rescue- I passed by this theatre all the time on my route.I always wondered if there was anything theatre related here-it did boast the tell-tale signs of a movie theatre-that being the huge auditorium in the back.

I do that kind of theatre-hunting all the time.I drive the
other people nuts because I always park the van and get out and walk around the perimeter of the building looking at old steel girders that must have held up old ornate theatre-marquis

Lost Memory I’m sure you will agree with me that at least this theatre didnt fall into disrepair as the Loews Paradise did (prior to its extensive rehabilitaion)with its leaky cielings from a hole in the roof that was never repaired.

Greenpoint commented about Chopin Theatre on Aug 2, 2006 at 4:36 pm

okay I must correct some of your misconceptions about the relationship of Club Exit to the Chopin.The Chopin was on the bottom floor..Club Exit is on the top floor, Club Exit encompasses what used to be a bingo parlor.Club Exit:It has never been on the first floor.Trust me on this one, I am a lifelong Greenpoint resident who used to frequent the Chopin as a little kid and hangs out at Club Exit as an adult.I know my stuff.

Greenpoint on Aug 1, 2006 at 2:12 am

Hi Bway
Just signed onto Cinematreasures again-
this was on Manhattan Avenue between Freeman and Eagle-I believe.
I havent really been down that end of the neighborhood in a while.

hope that helps

I personally purchesed what equipment was left in the projection booth and installed it in the Beach Cinema.

Hi Gilbert,
When I was 12 me and my uncle rented a beach house in Bradley Beach and would often check out movies here, its great to hear (or technically see) someone make reference to this treasure.
