Sorry to hear of yet another classic theater’s closing. Just watched “Oil and Water” http://imdb.com/title/tt0907656/ which had a scene filmed here.

The theater is still standing (as of last week anyway) and the marquee says something about it being the future home of the senior center who owns it.

That’s one movie I don’t want to see.

I just drove by last night and saw that the marquee refers to the YMCA around the corner…..the theater itself is NOT the YMCA. Just thought I’d pass that on.

Sorry for the off topic nature of this post, but for some reason I’ve been getting notices regarding this theater and not only have I not subscribed to this particular thread, but until now I’ve never posted here. How is this possible? Methinks there are Ubangi’s in the fuel supply!

Excellent! I think I can speak for most everyone else here in that we’d love to see these pix.

Yep, and the strange thing is all the lights that still burn at night…..even the neon parking lot sign is lit.

I agree that these buildings remaining unused is a shame, but at least they REMAIN! And in so doing, there’s always hope that somehow they may return to showing movies.

Thanks for the photo DSTNE….funny, it’s not anything at all as I imagined it!

Great! I was hoping that someone would catalog this theater. Will you be posting the pix on a website?

Has anyone taken any pics, before or during the demolition?

I can only speak for myself……my Dad took me to see this at night (and if memory serves it was the premiere). We dressed up and I seem to recall that everyone else was dressed nicely. One of the reasons I remember that we had on nice clothes is that I discovered that there was a small hole in one of my pants pockets and I ended up losing my ticket stub.

As for smoking pot in public, I kind of doubt that would’ve happened without arrests as things were quite different back then…..the cops looked for any excuse to bust a hippy type, you could serve jail time for a single joint (unlike today).

Warren, I’ve seen your numerous and highly detailed posts for quite a while (and for which I thank you) but am wondering how you come by all this info. Do you have access to some library or have you collected this over the years? Regardless, if you haven’t already, have you considered writing a book or books? Seems to me that you have more than enough info to pen a multi-volume work…don’t know how much of a market there would be, but it would still be fascinating and invaluable to future fans and scholars.

ANTKNEE commented about New Yorker Theatre on Jun 7, 2005 at 10:53 am

I believe their was another Adelphi theater in NYC as the current Ed Sullivan theater (where the Letterman show and previously, the Honeymooners was filmed) was at one time know as Adelphi). See here: http://www.theasc.com/magazine/wrap/1098wrap.htm

Not sure about whether it was a movie theater, but at that time it was known as the Adelphi Theater and was were the Honeymooners episodes were filmed with DuMont’s Electronicam system (a film chain in which a a movie camera was positioned in front of a television monitor….essentially a Kinescope) http://www.pharis-video.com/p4589.htm

I would be surprised if demolition actually begins that quickly, sure hope it doesn’t.

Didn’t know there was a Yahoo group for this theater. What’s the address? Yahoo’s group search engine is totally worthless. Thanks

Just read an unconfirmed and uncorroborated report that said “According to a notice taped to the counter, the Palm is finally closing Sunday May 15” Can anyone confirm or deny?
