People in this neighborhood won’t care.

There are still “atmospheric” theatres by Eberson that look similar to Loew’s 46th Street theatre. He used a basic design then varied it.

The building is guttered. To be realistic, demolished or not,the structure is no longer a theatre. If you are familiar with the neighborhood as it is now, you would know they are not interested in having any theatres.

The owner was just trying to avoid an argument. Few people of the old neighborhood are left who would care. Profit is the main goal and having a theatre now would lose money.

The Beacon was originally supposed to be one of theatres in a Roxy movie chain backed by William Fox. I am so glad it has been basically restored to its original condition.

While I no longer live in New York City, I am so glad that this theatre is still active and well maintained.

ERD commented about Ziegfeld Theatre on Nov 1, 2015 at 11:33 am

One of the last of the big movie theatres in the Broadway area. I hope it can continue to survive; the upkeep must be expensive. I remember going to the opening of the theatre and the reception that followed. I got to meeting some of the original Ziegfeld follies girls.

There is no doubt that this building will never become a theatre again due to neighborhood’s uncompromising religious view about seeing movies. One of the negative aspects of the location it is close to the elevated train and there is a lot of noise when a train passes by on New Utrecht Avenue. The theatre will most likely be knocked down just like the Boro Park.

Was another organ put in the King’s theatre?

ERD commented about Radio City Music Hall on Nov 11, 2014 at 7:43 am

The fact still holds that the false proscenium cuts down the original proscenium opening and in many people’s opinion looks ugly. The stage shows of many decades ago were more spectacular. Originally, the speakers were hidden in the grills of the ceiling.

The fake proscenium cuts down the size of the scenery, saving money. Glad to learn they stage show has improved. I still remember those wonderful 45 minute Leonidoff stage productions that were presented with the movies.Something so magical about them.

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.

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.
