The Palestine on Clinton Street just a few steps South off Houston Street had a name change in the early 1960’s, it became the Winston. It was still around during the 1970’s.

The Apollo Theater on Clinton Street south of Delancey Bridge traffic was still open in the 1950’s and 60’s. It was known for it’s “Always a Western” sign. One of the three featured movies was always a Western.
It was closed temporarily, changed management or something, but it was still operating in the 70’s and I think the 80’s as well.

The Palestine changed it’s name to the Winston in the 1960’s.
