Once again I wanted to send my photo, but your web site said not to do so. I hope you’ll have that feature up and coming soon. I would just LOVE to see all the photos that have been submitted…ydorap
I just went to the Cinema Treasures web page, where I clicked on to the section (indicated at the top) marked, “Add Photo.” Unfortunately,after doing so,it stated that adding a photo at this time is not possible — that “they” are currently working on that option. So, until the time I can add a photo,I will check back frequently to see when that we be possible. So, sorry, saps. I tried.
As soon as I can get my husband to scan the photo and put it in my picture file, I will send it. Hopefully within the next few days.
I grew up in the projects (Queensbridge) next to the Beacon, from six months of age, until fourteen years. (1940-1954) As kids, we would spend our afternoons there on Saturdays, where we saw two feature films, serials and ten cartoons — all for about fourteen cents. (And, some times, we even got free comic books!) A real treat, especially in the summer because the theater had air-conditioning, which was a luxury back then. I remember the lady who either owned the place, or was at least a regular employee. Her name was Flo. (Never knew her last name.) I have a picture that was taken — of my mother and myself when I was about two — that shows
the Beacon in the back ground. Anyone interested in seeing it?
