I wonder why the lines “occasionally a first run general release usually from Tri-Star or Paramount would play in-between art films” was removed from the introduction I wrote? After 6 years?
I never believed this would happen, awesome news.
Is all the property still empty? Why dosen’t someone reopen this?
Its amazing this could operate with a film policy as it did until 1981.
I love that incredible CINEMASCOPE sign from 1963. Is there another word in neon on the same sign also that maybe it flashed from one to the other?
I think the American in the Bronx. It was stupid of them to rip the walls apart in the downstairs.
The Best Buy Theatre sounds like a dollar house.
A great shot from 1938
Out of all the movie palaces restored or about to be restored (Jersey, Kings, Paradise)the Keith’s is in one of the most populated areas to support concerts. Flushing is more populated then ever.
“Islands in the Stream” was the the last film to play under the Loew’s banner. Somewhere among all of these posts I printed some information I found that the theatre was operated independantly for a short time on two different occasions.
Seems a vintage photo of the Belvedere operating as a theatre has still not turned up.
Almost since inception the Ziegfeld has closed for weeks and sometimes months at a time between bookings or for private screenings.
If they want to restore this theatre I would think someone would close up the huge hole in the roof. I drove by today and the snow was blowing in.
The picture on the screen looks superimposed.
I think we need to do what they did in the 1950’s. Give them a screen so large that when they walk in the theatre they go WOW. With home TV sets getting bigger and bigger its time for huge curved screens again and big auditoriums even with a plex.
Not good City Cinemas seems to be winding down selling off its properties.
Thats the kind of screen that makes me want to go to a theatre
Wrongly identified as the merrick Playhouse
A double bill
A shot right after it stopped showing movies
Wow the Gables !!!
Check out the odd vertical with the arrows…..did it once say RKO?
