Re the storefront theatres mentioned by Orlando way back when, the only time I was in this theatre was in one of those. Film was, I believe, A Death in Venice with Dirk Bogarde.

It is my understanding that before Natalie purchased the property it had been used as a garage. I remember reading that when she was doing renovations she came upon the old bathrooms. It took major digging to get the minimal information which appears on this site even going through the historical society. The second floor of Natalie’s property on Lake was the site of the original St. James Theater.

Local historical society. Regional or county historical society.

Possibility they may remain open through the winter. They finally got a new heating system. Time will tell.

Surprise, surprise. We had a crippling snow and they didn’t close (yet). However, they didn’t update their website for showtimes past January 4th until I called them.

Movie buff – in this day and age 25 is old. Seems as though they are leveled around this time. The Brookhaven Multiplex on Long Island was history after 18 years; the Commack Multiplex made it a bit longer. The Green Acres, Sunrise and Patchogue Multiplexes were also leveled. Shore in Huntington and the Lynbrook and Southampton are tear down and rebuilds. The Fantasy in Rockville Centre and the Roosevelt Field were gutted and rebuilt some years ago. To a large degree AMC did that with the Glen Cove this past year. Have to see what happens with the three older multiplexes, two in Farmingdale and the Regal Ronkonkoma. Westbury and Deer Park are less than a dozen years old.

Facade appears in a recent TV Christmas movie. Can’t remember which one. It wasn’t a Prince for Christmas because that showed the Aurora.

College Point Multiplex is on CT as being in Flushing.

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.

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.

Amazing. A city of almost 80,000 people and no movie theater. And there have been 20 over the years.

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.
