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?

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.

Whatever the plan may be.

robboehm commented about Lyric Theatre on Mar 4, 2017 at 1:35 am

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.

As per usual, first crippling snow storm and the theater closes until spring.

Went by today. They are changing the signage to read Showcase Cinema DeLuxe. Guess that means a price increase.

Went past the mall today and did a full circle. There is no new construction nor any signage re the theater which is supposed to open this year. A portion of the old Walmart is becoming a Dick’s Sporting Goods Store. Perhaps the balance will be repurposed for the theater.

Demolition is on the agenda for the February 13, 2017 meeting (like that will ever happen).

First time I saw Follies was at the Winter Garden. Second time at the Belasco which they trashed to make it look authentic. Didn’t catch the last revival.

The Hudson reopens on February 11th with an all star revival of Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park with George.

The 1962 Off Broadway revival of Cole Porter’s Anything Goes opened here on May 15th. This production incorporated some of the changes made to the original version which appeared in the movie. It won the prize for best Off Broadway Revival. The CD features Hal Linden and Eileen Rogers.

The OTB was ruled out and will now be incorporated in the nearby Marriott on the North Service Road of the expressway.

Question. As I was driving a friend up Route 101, he mentioned that there had been a very short lived movie theater in what is now call the Sunshine Square Shopping Center, at the intersection with Station Road. ????????

robboehm commented about Nautilus Theater on Jan 14, 2017 at 5:11 pm

Captfxco has posted early photos of the Nautilus (West End). He suggested this may have been a building from Camp Upton since a number of buildings from there were relocated to Long Beach. While I agree it looks military it is not the actual theater which was at Upton, a postcard image of which I have uploaded.

robboehm commented about Timmerman Theater on Jan 13, 2017 at 5:36 pm

By means of contrast uploaded a picture of a generic War Department theater. When I was at Ft. Dix in the early 1960s there were also two operating in addition to the Timmerman. A former one was being used for other activities.
