Dear robboehm, I would appreciate it if you would remove the photograph you just posted for a couple of reasons: (1) permission hasn’t been given to post the copyrighted photograph taken by my father and (2) I believe, though I’m not certain, the photograph is of Fox Poli in Bridgeport, CT.
Thank you David. The attribution should go to George Mann.
David, Please change the license to © All Rights Reserved. We usually give permission to use the photograph, but would like people to ask permission. I assume the “IM STILL SO NYC Facebook page” pulled it unattributed from my Flickr page. Thank you.

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.
This photograph of the Castle Theatre was taken by George Mann in 1926.
This photograph of the Rivoli Theatre was taken by George Mann in 1926.

Eastern Nevada Theatres, Inc. owned Motor-Vu Drive-In in 1961. It was closed in 1980.
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.
From what I could see when I stopped by last month and on their Facebook page, the Palace Theatre will soon be reopened.
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. 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?
“Paths of Glory” was released in 1957.
