Matt Lambros commented about RKO Keith's Theatre on May 25, 2019 at 5:37 pm

The whole building is going to be demolished. The land marked portions were removed. The plan is to restore them off site and reinstall them when construction is almost complete.

Matt Lambros commented about RKO Keith's Theatre on May 24, 2019 at 10:44 pm

Yes, it’s still happening. It’s June 23-29, but the Keith’s isn’t on the list.

It’s called TheatreCon now.

Yes, it had a Wurlitzer Opus 1430 2m/10rk. It was installed around 1926.

Current status should be demolished. Looks like it was demoed around 2015.

The auditorium is occupied by an apparel company. According to the owner “We gutted the theater so we could turn it into our warehouse and offices.”

Doesn’t sound like anything is left.

Matt Lambros commented about Varsity Theater on Sep 7, 2017 at 3:25 am

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 6:38 pm

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 9:20 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.
