The Whitestone Multiplex Theater sits on the site of the drive in now. That theater is not that good. But back in the day that was where we took our dates to see “House Party” and I believe I saw “Boyz N The Hood” there.
Came here with my friend Derrick to see Prince’s “Under the Cherry Moon” in 1986.
Great place. I worked here in the early 90’s. It had to be 1990 when Prince’s “Graffiti Bridge” premiered. It is my most memorable moment. Prince is my favorite singer and the manager knew this. So she let me go into the theater and give him a Coke. When I walked up to him I boasted about how big of a fan I was. He just giggled and thanked me for the Coke. I came back a lot of times to see “Planet of the Apes”, all the Star Wars movies and many more films. I love this place.
Spike’s new film “She Hate Me” just premiered there. The Astor Plaza ended with a bang. To have a Spike Lee joint premiering, that’s big.
