At the time the theater was completed there was a Winer & Sons organ installed.

See a lot of references to a Link organ above, but according to the Winer & Sons site one of their organs was installed in 1926.

This whole emphasis on outrageous seating boggles the mind. Give me a clean environment, a good movie and reasonable prices. Do I really need a recliner to watch an hour and a half movie? Don’t even have one at home to watch TV.

It’s indicated this was once the Laffmovie. Is that correct? I remember the Laffmovie as being on 42nd Street where the Empire 25 now is.

As part of my requirements for a college class I had to spend several hours of the week at a community center in South Jamaica in the early 60s. I was surprised to see the Plaza since I was always a movie theater nut. That must have been just after the theater closed.

Back in the late 1800s there was a Walnut Street Theatre (no specific address). Wonder if this was a replacement.

Southern Comfort it’s amazing how difficult it is to find photos of theaters past. However, advertising still lives on. You have to take what you can get. Please feel free to do the research and find a photo of this theater.

Comfortably you all missed pointing out the incorrect spelling of “scenery” and the fact that furnishings were “for” not “to” the Cove.

From the postcard you can see that $6,000 built a very impressive building.

So true hdtv 267. The new multiplexes come and go with a shelf life usually of 18 years. Easy to tear down and build anew than modify or upgrade. Plus it’s all leased property.

They replaced the Triboro vertical in the early 50s. Never touched the Valencia.

theatrefan – the vertical in the photo to which you refer only reads Loews. That means that the original, since the older ones always had the theater name also, was replaced at some point in time. Nice to know when and what the original looked like.

When did they scrap the vertical? You can see the side of it in the photo with the original marquee. Gone with the new.

Shame no one has taken pictures of the murals and other interior elements mentioned in the heading.
