This theater isn’t open.
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.
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.”

Status should be demolished.

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