Let’s make everyone pass a test and undergo a background check. This is clearly a case of National Security ! Let’s hope that Warren get’s the job of Monitor. We need someone to decide who will qualify for the right to belong to Cinema Treasures. Let’s screen-out all of the unworthy.

These off topic remarks cause no real problem. There appear to be no photos nor other historical information at this time.If not for these comments nothing would be posted here. The community that has gathered on this page is all that is left of the Embassy- that is memories.I do believe that for extended personal communication, email would be a good choice, however, those who gathered at The Embassy should be welcome to come together here.

It appears to be the same building. By the time I saw it in the mid 1960’s, it had a different look. Also, the angle of the phot doesn’t reveal the lobby area. That would tell me for certain. Thanks for the posting. I would love to know if anyone has later photos ?

I seem to remember that The Mother’s of Invention and The Fugs, two seminal 60’s bands, performed at The Garrick . Each having an extended run. I can’t say for certain but it was probably around 1966.I would love to know if anyone has more information about this.

It’s all been said, but I want to add my regrets- Jahn’s is a big part of my childhood memories. It is forever connected with my many trips to The Keith’s with my parents. .

While looking through a movie book it dawned on me that the last movie I saw at The Warwick was King of the Khyber Rifles . Looks like it was 1953. I was a little kid but I remember the movie very well. Probably not that interesting to most, but it placed it in time for me. Robbie
