ERD commented about Loew's 46th Street Theatre on May 21, 2012 at 2:53 pm

The ruins of what was once one of the most beautiful movie theatres in Brooklyn. Unfortunately, the entire goal of building such types of theatres was to make a profit. When that stopped, these buildings were either abandoned, converted to something else, or destroyed. Like other CT members,I thank Matt Lambros for sharing these photos of what Loew’s 46th Street Theatre looks like now.

The Multiplex in Johnstown continues to show first run motion pictures. It is well maintained.

I saw a photo of this theatre but can’t remember from what resource. It was a wide shot of the block (pre World War I)) so it is not too clear.

The Walker theater was named after the then mayor of NYC, Jimmy Walker,in 1926 and was never owned by his family.

ERD commented about Roxy Theatre on Feb 16, 2012 at 2:12 pm

As a youngster, it was a wonderful experience to see “Carousel” and a stage show at this magnificent entertainment palace. The Roxy was my favorite theatre in Manhattan. Some other musicals I saw there were “The King & I” & “Damn Yankees. (You are right Simon, it was not “Oklahoma!”)

I find it hauntingly sad and depressive, a sign of “modern” times.

ERD commented about This is Cinerama (2011 Trailer) on Jun 4, 2011 at 4:45 pm

I remember when “THIS IS CINERAMA” was presented at the Ziegfeld theatre back in the 1970’s. I was there for its first showing. Before the movie began, the elderly Lowell Thomas, with two pretty girls at his side, took a bow from the front of the auditorium.

The photo should be taken from New Utrecht Avenue as that is where the marquee was.

It is too bad that so many people have never see how beautiful this theatre was at one time. Still, we are lucky to have some imaginative and creative peple who have been able to save and restore some of our movie palaces. It’s a different world now!

I still remember the occasional stage shows when it was the theatre was owned by Loew’s. As a child, I performed on the stage in a Happy Felton “Knot Hole Gang” talent show. The “Knot Hole Gang” was a club sponsored by the Brookln Doger’s. Various groups would meet on Sat. mornings at their neighborhood Loew’s theatre.) Unfortunately even then, this beautiful theatre was not well kept. For Loew’s their goal was was how much profit they could get from each theatre they owned.

What a beautiful theatre!

ERD commented about Loew's Kings Theatre on Dec 25, 2010 at 8:28 am

Architectually, the Kings is far superior to the auditorium of Broolyn Tech. I don’t know how the two can really be compared. As far as rehabiliting the Kings, that remains to be seen. It certainly would become a treasure for many generations to enjoy.

The Tamapa is a stunning looking theatre. I am so glad this movie palace was spared. The organ sounds wonderful. To attend The Tampa theatre is a wonderful experience for all ages.

While I know it may sometimes be difficult to get, I wish more photos of the interior of the theatres should be posted on Cinema Treasures.
