The supermarket that was housed in the space since the theatre closed has gone out of business. The building is now vacant.

Attention Webmaster, Please remove the pictures posted by “Warren” on Sep 30, 2006 at 8:58am. They are my pictures and I removed them from my server when asked by the owner of the theatre.

Update: Marquee and lobby lit up for last week or 2. Door broken open again… I wonder if it will be burned down before it is torn down?

Either there will be few screens or they will build up like the Court Street Theatre.

I wonder what the new theatre will look like. If Regal was smart, They would buy the 4 houses behind the Marboro that are on Avenue O, Then they would have half the block and more room to play with.

This urban explorer knows that too well :–)

But in this case I found out that entry is through the door after they call someone to remove a sheet of plywood.

The Sinatra rumor is just that, A rumor. When gambling was proposed for Coney Island, Rumors were everywhere. Mr. Sinatra visited Coney Island one day in the late 60’s / early 70’s and all of a sudden, He owned or wanted to own this building and that building. At no point did Frank Sinatra own this or any other building in Coney Island. It is not an opinion, It’s a fact.

Very strange indeed. They were on about 3 weeks ago and off the next night, I know that there is NO WAY in…. Maybe the kittens have taken over :–)

The kittens are now a year old and doing well. As to others in the theatre, There is no way to tell as the building has been sealed pretty well this time.

On the day of the 75th, Mayor Smith announced that title of the Loew’s was being given to the city’s redevelopment corporation. My feelings are anger and more anger. The FOL has put so much into the theatre. It was also announced that they will have a mayoral debate at the Loew’s. I suggest that people attend and make it known that the FOL deserves a lease.
