vindanpar – the reality is Cinema Treasures is a preservation site of movie theaters. Grant you the number of treasures are in the minority but all hold treasured memories for someone.
There were also masks at the Glen Oaks and, I think, the Argo. Don’t remember if they were at the York.
studiobfl There is an RKO Keith’s in White Plains elsewhere on Cinema Treasures with a photo. It does not appear to be the same as the Colony building. That structure is listed as demolished.
Why the name Alpine?
cdv are you that naive. Darkened room, men, sex.
Nothing new to report.
Looks worse each time I pass.
Apparently the theatre could not return to use as a theatre because of NYC loading dock regulations.
Also, on the other side of 42nd is a theater whose lobby is being used as a restaurant but the auditorium on 41st is in tact and used for events. Forget the name.
Have they rebranded the facade to reflect AMC yet? If so, please add photos.
There is always that British company that purchased the Apollo/Lyric, now the Lyric and, more recently, the Hudson. Why the Times Square still sits there undeveloped is a mystery.
But why was it called the Gables?
Amazing. A city of almost 80,000 people and no movie theater. And there have been 20 over the years.
See the revival of the St. George on this week’s PBS Treasures of New York. Tonight, 10/19 on Channel 21.
As I understand it the premise of Cinema Treasures is that the main listing be under the last name of the theatre, in which case it would be Loew’s. All other IDs would be under prior names. However, we all know that isn’t always the case which can cause duplicates.
I had heard that Walmart and some other big box store had been interested.
The decay continues (see new photos) and the owner doesn’t respond favorably to offers made. No one can figure what he wants. Shortly the whole pylon will be overgrown and the blight will no longer be visible.
It would take a year to redo the theater in the image which appears in the photo section. There would be no point in redoing the inside until the integrity of the exterior is achieved.
Well the pylon says see you in 2017 – that’s gonna be tough.
No change in the visuals.
Uploaded 1945 theater card.
According to the Regal website the Lynbrook 13 and RPX will open in 2018. Originally the opening was to be this year.
And in later years Century had comprehensive movie guides for all of its theaters. There was one for northern Queens which showed activity at the Sunnyside, Bliss and 43rd Street, a Brooklyn guide and one which covered the Huntington theaters, the eastern Queens theaters and all the Nassau ones.
After the Meadows and Shore opened these guides were discontinued.
Still no signs of activity.
