My name is ken williams and I’m a life long bed-stuy resident,
I’ve been trying to locate a picture of the old apollo theater
for use in a project with the new owners of the mcdonalds thats located there now.
If it’s not too much to ask, do you think I could possibly get a copy of your sister’s picture of the apollo?
One of the son’s (nicholas) of the apollo’s owner (mr. bowen)
was a classmate and friend of mine at our lady of victory school
3 blks from the theater. Unfortunately we did'nt stay in touch.
Anyway, I can be reached at [email]
Thanks for any assistance you may be able to provide.
Hey Melvin j.
I only went to The Duffield a couple of times in the early ‘70s so i can’t speak on it, BUT!, i’ll have you know that my friends and i, growing up on Macon st., loved The Banco and The Regent Theaters. They were the only local theaters that we could get into at that time ('70-'73) to see the latest blacksploitation and karate movies.
And trust me, we paid $2.50 to see 2-3 of the latest movies on saturdays and sundays, not to wallow in the splendor,decor or charm of the place.
