It’s interesting to note that when Century started expanding into shopping centers they also left their normal stomping grounds of Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island for the Richmond and the Paramus.

Uploaded a picture from the 40s. Nothing on the marquee. Was it closed then?

Photo uploaded with Eldee as the first retail tenant. The basic form of the marquee was retained in the signage. The Park, however, never had a vertical, to my knowledge.

Uploaded photo taken after closure from American Classic Images. Marquee is quite beat up at this time. When Jericho Turnpike was widened the front of the marquee was hit several times. The neon around the signage was covered with aluminum and the “A Century Theatre” was removed.

Big problem is there is no community push. The thing with Queens, it is the most diversely populated borough with the majority of the people of more recent origin than when the Keith’s was functioning.

Some places created auditoriums on the stage area or in dressing rooms. Both present here.

There is still talk about preserving it. Just what is left to preserve after all this time? Anybody been in there lately?

Not all the proposed projects make it to completion: the Paramount in Stapleton, Staten Island was killed by bureaucracy; the Times Square on 42nd Street reno also died. I agree that it’s encouraging when you hear about some of these projects but I think the Keith’s is just too far gone with no real push.
