With the help of Jay Schmitt, I was recently able to identify this photograph taken by George Mann as Loew’s Theatre in Montreal as it appeared in 1931.

Thanks for the correction, Joe. I’ll remove the photograph. Google Street View shows 849 as the correct address, which should be changed on this page as well as the Google Street View.

The American Cinema is behind the Whiteway Shopping Center. There’s no signage that I could see on the building: http://tinyurl.com/bx6m6uz

Brad Smith commented about RKO Boston Theatre on May 29, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Brad Smith. The picture with the Paramount in the distance doe not show the Boston Cinerama. It is across from the Paramount and at the bend on Washington, St.

I would like to make the correction, dick, but I am not sure to which photograph you are referring. The photograph of the Fox Theatre in Brooklyn, NY has the Paramount in the background, but the photograph is taken in Brooklyn, not Boston. Would you please identify the photograph to which you refer?
