I just updated the photo of the theatre. Hope you all like it. Is there a way to add more pictures?
Hey, Bway and Tinseltoes, thanks for the help. I managed to do it, I think. (waves)
Okay, I know you guys have been waiting, so here I go again. This had better work! I’m tired! :>
I hope you can see it.
Thanks, rvb. I’ll go look for the picture. My hard drive just had to be replaced so it’s not there anymore.
Okay, again, does anyone know how to post a picture to this thread, and how to update the info at the top of the page? Thanks!
Has anyone EVER gone into this store?
rvb, I have nothing on a lower level of the building. The bathrooms I knew were on the second floor, right and left. There is no architect name on the papers. I never saw a staircase leading to a lower level.
I did. I’m sorry you can’t receive it.
rvb, I tried again! Let me know!
I hope so too, but that’s what I was told by the woman who worked for the carpet store guy. I’ll look on my blueprints to see if the architect’s name is there.
John, would that be the same architect as the one who did the Bellerose? They were both Century Theatres.
John, are you talking about the Bellerose? You said Bellevue in your post. I have been told that F.D. used the interior for practice, and much, if not all, was destroyed. A tragedy.
I don’t know what a Daemon is. Is anyone running this board who can tell me how to post pics (and update the info at the top of the page)?
rvb, are you getting the email but not the pic? My system is telling me it went.
Sent it again. Any messages?
Sent it, rvb!
Hey, Maxruehl! Myron Katz was my manager at the Bellerose for years, until he moved to the Floral (bit of a story there), and I went with him the year Jaws2 came out. We ran a Jaws2-athon back to back! Mr. Katz was a very kind and shy man, and yes, he did have difficulty with conversation. Maybe you and I know each other? Were you part of the group that stayed up in the theatre that night on the second floor, shut out all the lights, and played Simon? :>
How would I do that, rvb?
On it’s way, Nash!
Nash, I thought the Good Humour Trucks were on Braddock Avenue. I remember going by a parking lot of them on my way to Van Buren (ugh!).
BTW, I have a picture of the profile of the theatre from around ‘78.
Nah, I’m not criticizing you guys, that’s just my opinion of the article. You’re quite safe, Greg! :> I wonder what the owners of the Floral Park Motor Lodge think of this competition. I remember when it was a senior citizens home.
That’s a terrible article. Everyone in it is represented as being so smug and unfriendly. “I’m not a racist”….“with a grin”….“got into his black Lexus”… That just stirs up more bad feelings.
The drinking fountain was right next to the soda machine, on the right hand side (going in) at the foot of the staircase.
Mrs. Marsh named the town Bellerose because she thought it sounded “euphonic”. The concession stand was at the center top of the lobby and you could turn and see the screen. They had popcorn, the usual theatre candy, and lemonade and fruit punch, which you could order “half and half”. The soda machine sat to the right by the bottom of the staircase, and popped out cups.
You’re right, Greg, there never was a balcony. On the second floor where we expect a balcony to be, was the projectionist’s room. Going up, the ladies room was on the right and the men’s on the left. The manager’s office was on the first floor, all the way to the left going in.
