robboehm commented about Apollo Theatre on Sep 8, 2016 at 9:26 pm

You’re forgetting the New Victory, which is intimate and used for family faire. The current owners of the Lyric (the combined space of the Apollo and Lyric) are now working to retrofit the Hudson a bit further uptown and on the other side of Broadway. There is talk of the Shubert’s building a new theater on Eight Avenue between 45 and 46. There is also the matter of the Times Square on 42nd which is still idle despite plans to develop it and the Liberty, whose auditorium is still in tact and used for various events.

Certainly more relevant to the site than people recalling that they saw such and such at a certain theater just to put their names in print rather than actually contributing something to the actual site.

Also came upon a NY Times review of November 30, 1936 for “Ember a Hid Alatt” (Man Under the Bridge) and one from November 6, 1939 for “Toprini Nasz”) Wedding in Toprini.

According to a current ad on Facebook: “A 350 seat Art Deco theater newly restored as a state of the art performance venue.”

That quite a drop from the original 1,012 seats and the 800 shown on the site.

According to the Fandango Movie Times there are five films starting around 1PM. I think Mike is correct on his assumption.

Are theaters where you are listed on CT? If not, they’re easy to establish. If you’ve been to one or more, look them up on CT and make comments which would be informational.

I would think that Gigi would have had one two particularly since it was screened at a Broadway Theater.

When I lived in Bellerose the cashier at the local theater was, I believe, a single parent of two sons, and a WWII widow. The doorman was an elderly gentleman. I think that was often the combination at the Century Theatres which always had continuous performances rather than just evening and, perhaps, matinees like most of the Long Island venues.

One of the “public entertainments” was the May 12, 1915 boxing match between Special Delivery Hirsch and Sammy Baker.

The building was recently sold. Let’s see what happens next.

Deja vu. When I was a youth in the 1950s, the Eastern Long Island Theaters under the, long gone, Prudential banner had a policy of having matinees on rainy summer days. The Hampton Arts is offering that this year.

At the July 11th meeting the subject of the Playhouse demo was deferred to the August 8 meeting when it will probably be deferred to the September meeting when it will be deferred to….You get the picture.

Current commercial shot in and around Kiester shows the facade of the Kee. Must be a bad commercial. Don’t remember what it was for and I’ve seen it a couple of times. Definitely had some relationship to the slang term kiester.

Also they’ve probably reserved seats. Are not the pylons still maintained at the entrances to the mall?

As promised. Uploaded photos of the new signage on the front (Terry Street) and also that on the side facing Ocean Avenue. Very low key in keeping with the building and the neighborhood.
