All this is gone. Now there is a hospital, Woodhull Medical Center. There were so many movie theaters in this area and they’re all gone. I have to take the train into Manhattan to see a movie. When I hit Lotto I plan on purchasing the old Rainbow Theater on Graham between Messerole and Montrose and show old movies, cartoons, present live shows.

Anyone know the name of a small movie theater on Jamaica Avenue somewhere around 80th street? It is now a discount store. It was between the Eldert Lane/75th Street and Forrest Parkway stop on the elevated J train. Thanks in advance.

Oops, I just called and the price of admission is still $15. It’s not worth going back. Business has dropped off considerably. I understand that the owners have to maintain the place, though. And they do a very good job.

So they lowered the price of admission? That’s a good movie. I remember going before they raised the price and it was jumping. But once they raised the price to $15 many people stopped going. I was there about two weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon and it was far from packed. I am going there tonight.

I remember taking the then B53 bus (now the Q54) to Bridge Plaza to transfer to the M39 to cross the Williamsburg Bridge. I was a kid and I remember the marquee to the Marcy Theater.

I think this became a DMV.
