So many interesting stories associated with this theatre including a recipe for meatballs and cheesecake. LOL It is sad that the Rko Madison closed but at the time of its closing the neighborhood was deteriorating and attendance had dropped off. Be thankful that the Ridgewood managed to survive and will give future movie goers the same good memories that we had when we attended movies there.
Our Man Flint was shown at the Ridgewood in 1966 followed by In Like Flint in 1967. The Matt Helm movie called the Silencers was also shown at the Ridgewood in 1966. These movies were spoofs of the James Bond series of movies.
To answer a much earlier question the Ridgewood was always located in Queens. In a recent movie listing the Ridgewood appears as the Queen City Ridgewood theater. Advertisements often list theatres incorrectly. Although the Rko Madison was more lavish I truly enjoyed my movie experiences at the Ridgewood.
