The interior of what is now Shopper’s World looks like it was a movie theatre.

I went there today for the first time. I think I was in screen two. The air conditioning was not hardly on and it was somewhat warm in the theatre. And there was a musty smell.

Would the congregation object to anyone taking pictures of the interior?

In its last years this place was a shit hole. The bathrooms were trashed.

Why did they close the theatre? Was the auditorium turned into retail space?

Update: The clothing store, Rainbow, is closing this location. I wonder if they will tear these building down? I will try and post a picture.

What is the name of the movie theatre in Downtown Brooklyn, off of Fulton, that is now a Berkley College and Planet Fitness? I thought it was the Duffield

To Matt Lambros
How were you ale to gain access to the theatre? I once went to the Adams and asked if I could check it out but I was told ‘no’. I assume it’s due to insurance reasons.

I have heard rumors that the block where the theatre is has been sold and will be demolished. Has anyone heard anything like this?

This gem reminds me of the former Valencia on Jamaica Avenue. I passed by one day during the week and there was a church service going on but the auditorium was nearly empty. They might consider leasing the theatre for some days for added revenue.

Why is it that some people don’t want pictures taking? Don’t they realize it’s important to preserve the history

I liked this theatre very much. And even more so when it was a $2.00. What a shame it didn’t last. I remember the old Adonis on the next block.

Once upon a time this was known as S&M Department store. I have long suspected this was a former movie theatre because when you go to where the cash registers are now it’s like an L shape similar to many other theatres.

Willburg145 commented about Rick Nelson Screening Room on Dec 21, 2014 at 4:12 pm

I recall another Rick Nelson viewing room that was located in one of the bookshops. You had to go to the back and there was a stair to go downstairs. You paid 5 bucks by inserting into a machine and in you went. It was a small viewing room
