It’s too bad that the ACM photo is so over-exposed. It looks much better when computer “rejuvenated.”

Here’s a link to a 1964 photo with “The Carpetbaggers” on the marquee: View link

The Prospect in the Bronx is listed here under a later name as the Olympic Theater Music Hall: /theaters/2578/

Warren G. Harris commented about Apollo Theatre on Apr 17, 2009 at 1:34 pm

Robert, that photo shows the Anco Theatre, not the Apollo Theatre, which was on the north side of 42nd Street.

Warren G. Harris commented about Bliss Theatre on Apr 17, 2009 at 1:23 pm

The Bliss went directly from theatre to JW church, which didn’t alter the marquee right away. The “Watchtower” displayed is a JW publication.

Warren G. Harris commented about Trans-Lux 49th Street Theatre on Apr 17, 2009 at 1:16 pm

Why not post photo links for Embassy 49 at its own listing, rather than this one? That theatre was previously the World, and originally the Punch and Judy.

Warren G. Harris commented about Loew's Hillside Theatre on Apr 17, 2009 at 11:11 am

That’s the same photo that I linked three days ago. I don’t think that the Hillside was closed permanently at that point in time, just between bookings.

Warren G. Harris commented about Loew's Valencia Theatre on Apr 17, 2009 at 11:07 am

The Valencia closed as a theatre in 1977. “The Greatest Show on Earth” first played there in 1952, but if “Cecil” is the first word on the marquee, DeMille’s remakes of “The Ten Commandments” and “The Buccaneer” were shown at the Valencia in later years, as well as resissues of “Samson and Delilah” and “Reap the Wild Wind.”

Warren G. Harris commented about Allyn Theater on Apr 17, 2009 at 10:52 am

Here’s an exterior photo dated July 1986, which doesn’t jibe with demolition date cited in the CT introduction:

Warren G. Harris commented about Saenger Theater on Apr 17, 2009 at 10:38 am

There doesn’t seem to be a CT listing for Mobile’s Roxy Theatre. Here’s a photo incorrectly dated June, 1939. The movie didn’t have its world premiere engagements until December of that year: View link

Here’s an ad from January 5, 1933 for the Publix-operated Allyn Theatre and a melodrama that turned out to be the only movie that Clark Gable and Carole Lombard ever made together: View link

Warren G. Harris commented about Loew's Poli Theatre on Apr 17, 2009 at 9:37 am

Here’s an ad from January 5, 1933 for the Poli Capitol. Fanchon & Marco’s stage adaptation of “The Desert Song” seemed more of a crowd-puller than the feature movie:

Warren G. Harris commented about Garden Theatre on Apr 17, 2009 at 6:27 am

A 500-seat Garden Theatre is listed in the 1927 Film Daily Year Book but not in the 1926 edition, so it could have originally opened around that time. The 1926 volume lists only a Dreamland for Lock Haven. The 1927 also adds the 500-seat Martin for Lock Haven. No specific addresses are given for any of the three theatres. No seating capacity is given for Dreamland, whose name suggests birth as a nickelodeon or penny arcade.

Warren G. Harris commented about Gramercy Theater on Apr 17, 2009 at 6:00 am

Since the business failure of Blender, this is now being advertised and publicized in the press as the Gramercy Theater. Please see page 64 of the April 15-21, 2009 issue of Village Voice for confirmation.
