I don’t get out to Douglaston too much these days, I kind of forget there was a movie theatre there
I love Jehovah’s witnesses as they respect their buildings….any old movie theaters that I have visited now under their control are in immaculate condition…I just wish they’d program 35mm movies…which must look amazing.
the above link is the demolition crew bringing the dome down. this is tragic. it looked like a great place.
good riddance, I have only been here one time for the latest Jason Bourne installment back in summer 2016.There was a plethora of problems here, the AC broke..and we all had to move to a different theatre…I welcome the NITEHAWK people there, I have spent quite a many days and nights in there drinking and eating and watching films…they will be a great addition to the Park Slope citizens.
I am going to miss this place though,I have seen quite a few films here going back over the years. I bought tons of dvd’s here too…as the box office used to sell dvd’s at a point. Sadly there is a lot of competition from other indie houses…the Angelika and Film Forum are a stones throw up West Houston. The Cinema Village and Quad Cinema and new Metrograph are all in walking distance.
fun fact:on the way to the Chelsea to see die hard with a. vengeance… I stopped in and bought fireworks in here back in 1995…pre-pre Houston street/LES gentrification. at that point it was a storage warehouse/hardware store.
an all-you can watch special….sounds quite enticing.
I would like to see a PHISH show there….I love the seating
how many seats does (or did) this theatre hold?
Hello CT: I remember this story. James Brown asked to see his report card and actually told him that he needed to improve his grades or he couldn’t hang out there anymore.
frank zappa played here 10/23/1977
my deepest condolences, remember our dearly departed are just not in our presence,they are now within our souls.
thank you Joe….and nice house.
What a great theatre…I was there for a second time yesterday for Insane Clown Posse and covered in Faygo diet Root Beer.I had a feeling it was a movie theatre at some point.
I can’t wait to post tons of pictures of my new favorite theatre.
I was just there yesterday for “The Iceman Cometh”.
January 4th 2015 is the last day for the Center and will break my mother’s heart…
If I die. I will haunt this majestic theater.
I’m sitting in here now. What a beauty!!
