595 Main St was known in the 50/60/70s as Loew’s New Rochelle with a theatre design (small balcony) unlike most of the other Loew’s properties in Metro New York. Frank C.
Proctor’s New Rochelle had a very wide proscenium and the wide screen presentations were dazzlng. Frank Cunning.
I worked at Brookhaven part hours and the giant screen with three speaker systems behind created a fine presentation. Frank Cunning.
Loews wonderful venue became a municipal parking ramp in late 60’s.They maintained a peculiar screen arrangement until well into the 1940s. The stage was high, wide and deep but the screen was small, old fashioned round corners and set stage deep in a setting of stage right high windows and stage left “sofas”. When wide screen came in though their auto screen mask changes made very impressive effects. Frank Cunning.
