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.
“Cool it” Comfortably.
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.
Uploaded a photo of the Times when it was called the Lyric courtesy of the Indiana Historical Society.
Uploaded a postcard image of N. Central Av. showing the Vaudette in the left foreground.
Don’t forget $5 Tuesdays at Hampton Arts.
Uploaded a photo showing original marquee and vertical.
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.
The church in the Valencia modified the original vertical
The entire building is empty?
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.
Attn Bloop from 2007 and jay2300 I came upon a photo of the Mayfair by accident and uploaded it today. I came upon it when I Googled “Historic Stillwell Avenue, Brooklyn, NY photos”.
Uploaded an interior photo. Obviously a bare bones setup.
More correctly the AKA should read Carey Theater at BAM.
Street view now works if you zoom.
Lyndon, could you put that image in the photo section? Links tend to be broken over time.
The entrance to the Irish-American Center is at the corner; presumably that was also the case when a theater. The roof line of the auditorium begins some distance from the corner. The auditorium runs parallel to Willis Avenue with stores and apartments fronting the street.
And have you confirmed that all of his theaters in the chain are on Cinema Treasures?
Try as I might I can’t locate a picture from the day. But, as I’ve tried to enlarge the aerial photo it appears as though there was some sort of marquee.
Uploaded the photo I mentioned in my October 30, 2010 comment. Building still stands and can be seen in the Google streetview.
