The last couple of years I went to the Astoria, it turned into a real dive. Ripped up screens, a sticky floor, and usually an odd scent for your “viewing pleasure”. It was funny that the Drake, another Queens theater that was only a dollar actually was in better condition.
The Drake was great for those one dollar movies (took a couple of cheap dates when I wasn’t making alot of money)followed by a dinner in Cooky’s Steakhouse in the mall (good steaks and the best salad bar for that type of restaurant.
