Mark an alternative would have been to rewrite your comment with the additional information and delete the old one.

The last I heard Flushing was pretty much an Asian population. The last time I was there I couldn’t read the signage because it was in Chinese characters. Despite a lot of product coming from that part of the world very little is ever exhibited in this area.

Mike- Remember when strippers were “exotics”?

Speaking to a friend in California. He said all signage was changed immediately out there. The Shore in Huntington still has a Cineplex Odeon vertical (they never had an AMC anything). Curious to see if they remember that.

Sounds like a great plot for a novel: ghosts from the theater menacing apartment owners.

Brad, if you access the street view in the heading above you can see what the Crotona looked like as a retail outlet. That might help you with the identification you seek.

Passed by today. Exterior looks even worse. No apparent activity inside. Think we can say bye bye.

With all the AMC rebranding and removal of the Loew’s name have they, or will they, remove the Cineplex Odean vertical from the Shore?

Next time you’re there how about getting a seating count for each auditorium?

So all these years later the building is still being renovated. It was supposed to be a church with a seating capacity about the same as when the building was a theater. But they took down the fire escapes to the balcony which, if I’m correct, had more seats than the orchestra. Go figure.

Uploaded a b&w photo from 1967 from the Forgotten New York site as well as an evening photo with the old marquee.

My point exactly. The plan is so old it’s probably been forgotten and they’ll do whatever they want.

Whatever the plan may be.

robboehm commented about Lyric Theatre on Mar 3, 2017 at 5:35 pm

Clarifying some of the above. As a movie theater the Apollo used 42nd Street as it’s entrance. When it was reopened as a Broadway Theater with On Golden Pond, the entrance, albeit small, was on 43rd Street. I don’t remember either the Apollo or Lyric having other than exits on 43rd Street despite the fact that the 43rd Street side of the Lyric was quite elaborate for only an exit situation. The detail on the exterior is still in place, which might be why the joint structure is now called the Lyric. As the Ford Center access was from both streets.

As per usual, first crippling snow storm and the theater closes until spring.

Went by today. They are changing the signage to read Showcase Cinema DeLuxe. Guess that means a price increase.

Went past the mall today and did a full circle. There is no new construction nor any signage re the theater which is supposed to open this year. A portion of the old Walmart is becoming a Dick’s Sporting Goods Store. Perhaps the balance will be repurposed for the theater.

Demolition is on the agenda for the February 13, 2017 meeting (like that will ever happen).

First time I saw Follies was at the Winter Garden. Second time at the Belasco which they trashed to make it look authentic. Didn’t catch the last revival.
