I think early 60’s my dad and I would buy bagels at night hot from the oven for 7 cents each on Rodney St. across from a then closed and very dark intimadating structure which I believe to be the Republic Theater. I was only about 8 or 9 years old but I could be mistaken. If anyone remembers and could locate the site on the Google map I would appreciate a response. I also remember after it was torn down it was replaced with a gas station on what seemed like a triangled shaped block.

Remember watching alot of American International movies back in the late 60’s at the Graham. A cat would roam the theater and brush up against your leg in search of mice.

Cut alot of classes at Grover Cleveland to go to the Arion back in the 70’s. Adults $1.00 Kids .50. Some days the projectionist would also run the snack bar. Would have to leave his post and run up the stairs whenever the projector would fail in the middle of the movie.

After being a reader of ct for years I decided to officially sign up after 30 minutes of searching the google map, getting off the expressway, and finding the Maspeth. Left NY 33 years ago but I still remember taking my mom to the Maspeth 3 times a week for bingo.
