This theater should be listed as closed. It hasn’t been except for one or two events since the Farm Worker’s Council bought it in 2011.

I’m hosting two photography workshops of the closed theater on Nov 4th. For more info and to sign up visit my Photo Workshops page

Matt Lambros commented about Varsity Theater on Sep 6, 2017 at 7:25 pm

It’s not in too poor shape to reuse. I was in the theater a few years ago. They wouldn’t get the extra 35 stories of apartments if they restored the Varsity.

Matt Lambros commented about Ridgewood, Queens, NY - Could the former Ridgewood Theater be making a historic comeback as an arts space? on Aug 30, 2017 at 10:38 am

There’s nothing left of the original Ridgewood Theatre except for the facade and marquee. Kinda hard to make a “historic comeback” from that.

Matt Lambros commented about Kings Theatre on Aug 24, 2017 at 1:20 pm

I was lucky to meet Dorothy once a few years ago. She was quiet at first, but as soon as I showed her some photographs of the Kings she began to talk about her time there. She was an amazing person, and I’m sorry for your loss.

Matt Lambros commented about Broadway Theatre on Aug 13, 2017 at 5:53 am

The interior of the theater looks like it’s in pretty much the same condition it was when I visited it in 2011. Glad to see someone is doing something with it, even if it’s just sealing it up.

Here’s the link to the event:

Matt Lambros commented about Flushing, Queens, NY: After three decades, work finally begins on redeveloping historic Flushing theater on Jul 27, 2017 at 6:40 am

Kind of ironic that the construction company that worked on the Kings restoration will be the one bringing this theater down.

Mark – That’s amazing that the organ console was sealed under cement for so many years. Thanks!

Matt Lambros commented about Loew's New Rochelle Theatre on Apr 26, 2017 at 11:17 am

Seth Pinksy was one of the people who helped get the Loew’s Kings in Brooklyn restored. It’s sad that he also helped another former Loew’s theater be destroyed.
