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

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”.

More correctly the AKA should read Carey Theater at BAM.

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.

Since the Board wouldn’t give approval to the demo unless there was a detailed plan addressing the affect on traffic during the process the owners hired a traffic engineer. That report is nearing completion. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

The Nassau County Industrial Development Agency has approved tax benefits for this $32 million project. Benefits might include a sales tax exemption of up to $567,000 on the purchase of construction materials and equipment, a mortgage recording tax exemption of more than $284,000 and a 20 year payment-in-lieu of taxes agreement that freezes taxes for the first two years and then raises them incrementally for the remainder of the term. This from LI Business in Newsday.

Another words the public is going to get screwed.

The Southampton used the original facade when they rebuilt also the AMC in Manhattan and the former Henry Miller’s.

Downsizing was done to accommodate the building of an H & M store. Regarded as win win since theater officials said they overbuilt in the first place.

Uploaded a long shot to show the roof line. Reminds me of the North Babylon and Mid-Island.

And to Jeffwitt the day of each town with it’s own theater is over; just check the Newsday Movie Guides. Over 70 theaters have bitten the dust on Long Island.
