irajoel commented about Normandy Theatre on Jul 29, 2006 at 11:38 am

My father owned a luncheonette across the street from the Normandy on New Utrecht ave, and got to know the manager/owner a Mr. Green I recall. My mother who worked in the store, would leave me in the theatre to babysit me, I guess in 1950-51 or 52 and the matrons as we used to call them would look after me. I recall having to sit through A Streetcar named desire over and over, and for years after I had an aversion to it. Also have a memory of seeing an Italian film either bitter rice or maybe anna with silvano magnano. In the mid 50’s it was turned into a factory, and many of the Puerto Rican workers would come to eat lunch at my fathers store, and I would sometimes go with my mother in the factory/theatre to deliver lunch for the workers.

Growing up in Boro Park, the Windsor was considered by most to be a dump. Think I went there maybe once or twice. I was strictly a 46th street or Boro Park kid.

here are three pictures showing The Globe Theatre, The Gaiety and the strand. I’m a bit confused so maybe someone can give some info on these theatres. It seems that a publicity parade for 20 mule train was taking place. In any case these are rare pictures of Times Sq.

I saw a few vaudeville shows in the 50s. Films seen include the sign of the pagan ugh. 4 girls in town, judgment at nuremberg, the diary of anne frank, and the judy garland concert in 1967.

irajoel commented about Fox Theatre on Jul 23, 2006 at 10:33 pm

Unfortunately I only went to the Fox maybe twice that I recall. Once to see the Eddy Duchin Story I was nine. And then in 1959 I think to see It Happened To Jane. The trouble with the Fox was that it was off the beaten trail. The Albee, Met & Paramount were practically in a straight line.

The forums have terrific programming, but I really don’t like the theatres. Those columns, and terrible seats, sightlines etc. If someone tall sits in front of me I’m sunk.

irajoel commented about City Cinemas Cinema 1, 2, and 3 on Jul 23, 2006 at 7:27 pm

these were two of my favorite theatres and what a shame that now they are going or gone already. I loved the newness of the design when it opened in the 60’s. I loved also the display case, so unusual in that there were 3-D displays for the film being shown. I remember how exciting they were. Thanks for the color photos. beautiful. I saw nothing but a man, and a funny thing happened on the way to the forum, kiss of the spider woman, The Exoricist, to sir with love, Nashville, carnal knowlede and many others. Even if I wasn’t seeing the film showing I would love to see the displays. They were I recall very clever.

this is a great site, I can get lost on it.
I have many fond memories of the Albee Theatre as I went there when I was a kid. It was always there when my mom took us shopping downtown Brooklyn, and some of the films seen were invasion of the body snatchers, bernadette, blue denim and others that I can’t recall at the moment.
