Yes I believe this is one of those late 80’s buildings. It had sloped floors. It was hard to find because they had to put up the marquee on busy 38th street so people could be directed to the theater.
Let me guess. The “renovation” will either be a Rite-Aid or a Walgreen’s.
Still closed and boarded up. No signs of any activity.
What an odd projection angle. The projection building is way off to the side.
Theater is temporarily closed until July 1 (approx) for installation of a new screen. Looks like it’ll be a very short season for them this year.
Picture shows the early use of “blast” speakers on the screen tower. This is the way the sound was distributed before the “in-car” speaker system was invented.
Didn’t this theater get expanded to two screens?
it would be interesting to see the field layout with an overhead view from a drone.
Are they still using speakers? Or have they converted to radio sound?
They get a video projector yet?
I’ve found and scanned my pictures of this theater from September 2001.
I’ve now found and scanned my pictures of the Times Theater and added them here.
I understand the bank has taken back the theater.
That dimmer would have been for the house lights.
I’ve got some pictures of this theater in my files. Just need to dig them out and scan them.
Any more updates?
What year did Lucy appear at this theater?
All of AaronNi’s photobucket links no longer work.
Looks like this theater had RCA sound system/speakers.
Looks like their original 1.33 ratio screen. Appears all they did to go wide screen was simply paint black upwards and made it a 2:1 ratio. I see speaker posts but no speakers on them. I assume they’ve gone radio sound.
When did they stop using speakrs and make the switch to radio sound? Once they got radio sound, did they start with AM then later switch to FM? Or were they always AM?
Wow, what a fantastic paint job on the screen tower! :)
Wasn’t this the theater that Andy Crow would run 16mm silents on an old Bell & Howell 140 carbon arc projector?
Was Marshall Woodbridge involved with this theater?
I’m assuming they are using radio sound now? I don’t see any speakers on the posts.
What the guy should do is run first run product anyway and let Regal sue them. The resultant bad press from the uproar of the people would force Regal to allow first run there. Another way around it is to say the original “entity” United Artists Theaters no longer exists so this clause is no longer valid.
He passed away in July 2016.
