robboehm commented about Nelida Theatre on May 27, 2015 at 6:58 pm

The postcard image I’ve uploaded is from 1909 and was produced by van Gordon and Company, one of the businesses which was burnt out in the massive fire. It would appear that there is only a small entrance on Main Street as is often the case.

My research indicates the Community was built on the site of the former Nelida Theater which was destroyed by fire, along with a half dozen other buildings, on January 1, 1918. Only a portion of the value of the Nelida was covered by insurance so subscriptions were sought to aid in the rebuilding. Probably inspiration for the name Community.

Loew’s had a 46th Street Theater with a similar design but much more massive. That is probably where the confusion came with the BrooklynPix photo.

Re all of the above. Lost Memory is lost to Cinema Treasures taking all of his comments, pictures and links with him. So the only 16th image around is the one on BrooklynPix which I believe is incorrectly attributed to Loew’s. The façade in the picture does look church like per another comment. BrooklynPix doesn’t always get the information right, but they are vintage pictures. Also regarding the Bijou Dream site the theaters on display are changed periodically. Only images posted in 2015 are up now. Don’t know if you can do a look up by name or if there is some sort of index.

If you see something on that site capture it since the link will eventually go bad.

Can’t resist making the comment that they should have called it the Double Decker.
