The Regal site no longer contains information about a new theater at the Sunrise Mall.

Gonna be a really ugly building.

If you go to Save the Commodore!’s Photostream on Flickr there are some depressing photos of the interior (and exterior) before the demolition.

This whole business of reserved seats and recliners is outrageous and pricey.

Big Joe a lot of theaters don’t even make it that long. The Brookhaven Multiplex on Long Island lasted 18 years, the Five Towns, Raceway Cinema and others even less. Now a days it’s common to tear down and rebuild rather than upgrade. All properties are leased these days. There was one on CT the other day that didn’t make it past the first year.

Willburg145 – Ask and it shall be given unto you. Uploaded a photo showing the marquee of the Rio Piedras. I found it on a site called Scouting New York which documents locations of films then and now. The film in question for this was the French Connection.

Mark an alternative would have been to rewrite your comment with the additional information and delete the old one.

The last I heard Flushing was pretty much an Asian population. The last time I was there I couldn’t read the signage because it was in Chinese characters. Despite a lot of product coming from that part of the world very little is ever exhibited in this area.

Mike- Remember when strippers were “exotics”?

Speaking to a friend in California. He said all signage was changed immediately out there. The Shore in Huntington still has a Cineplex Odeon vertical (they never had an AMC anything). Curious to see if they remember that.

Sounds like a great plot for a novel: ghosts from the theater menacing apartment owners.

Brad, if you access the street view in the heading above you can see what the Crotona looked like as a retail outlet. That might help you with the identification you seek.

No change from my December report.

Passed by today. Exterior looks even worse. No apparent activity inside. Think we can say bye bye.

With all the AMC rebranding and removal of the Loew’s name have they, or will they, remove the Cineplex Odean vertical from the Shore?

Next time you’re there how about getting a seating count for each auditorium?

robboehm commented about Queens Theatre on Mar 7, 2017 at 7:36 pm

So all these years later the building is still being renovated. It was supposed to be a church with a seating capacity about the same as when the building was a theater. But they took down the fire escapes to the balcony which, if I’m correct, had more seats than the orchestra. Go figure.

Uploaded a b&w photo from 1967 from the Forgotten New York site as well as an evening photo with the old marquee.

My point exactly. The plan is so old it’s probably been forgotten and they’ll do whatever they want.

robboehm commented about Lyric Theatre on Mar 3, 2017 at 7:35 pm

Clarifying some of the above. As a movie theater the Apollo used 42nd Street as it’s entrance. When it was reopened as a Broadway Theater with On Golden Pond, the entrance, albeit small, was on 43rd Street. I don’t remember either the Apollo or Lyric having other than exits on 43rd Street despite the fact that the 43rd Street side of the Lyric was quite elaborate for only an exit situation. The detail on the exterior is still in place, which might be why the joint structure is now called the Lyric. As the Ford Center access was from both streets.
