What a shame.
Luna to Nuluna (chic for “New Luna”)? I think you might have something there Joe. I wonder if the street address for both can be cross referenced?
What an amazing place. I wish I lived closer. Happy New Year, Loews, may you have a prosperous one.
I absolutely love it when the corporate powers that be decide to eradicate something out of our lives and replace it with a new product that is forced down our throats. There should be a name for that sort of business stratagem where companies are guaranteed success because there isn’t any alternative to their product and the only competition has been mandated obsolete.
How cool is that?!?!
Thanks for taking the risk of being attacked by dogs to film this. I really enjoyed it despite the sad, lonely, forgotten place that it is.
I wonder what ever happened to the the four urns or lanterns at the top of the facade.
Hear! Hear! Life’s Too Short and movietheatres!
I do love a Historic Preservation success story! Thanks!
@ wolfgirl, It was funny to read your comments about Youngstown audiences being a tough crowd, because I have said the same thing for years. My band started playing at the Cedars Lounge, on North Hazel St. in 1983 when I was still in high school. We played for years there to develop a following. We really had to work at it. The first time we headlined a show at a club in New York City, we were an immediate smash hit and nobody there really even knew us. I remember thinking, “Gee, that was easy, not like playing Youngstown.”
I take it this is the “crying room?” I never knew such thing existed until today. Love this website.
Boy, it really sounds to me like Aurora, Ill. needs a new mayor. I hope they remember to kick that bum out of office on election day. I’d really like to see this documentary, even though I’m sure it will make my blood boil.
Wow, if it takes four men with concrete saws and jackhammers that long to knock out a few blocks, I’m left wondering if it really needed removed?
