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
Wow, I was thinking last night that I wanted to pass by and see a movie before….well, too late.
To Matt LambrosHow 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 wonder where the original box office was
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
Matt how did you manage to get permission to photograph the theatre>
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.
Here is an aerial view
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.
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
First a movie and then heading to Tad’s Steak for dinner.
How did you access to this part of the theater?
Nicholas thanks for the great pictures. But how did you get into the projection room and ‘backstage’ areas? Really great. Thanks
What did the interior of the Cinart look like? It’s too bad there aren’t more interior shots of these theaters.
The balcony is now open.
Here is a link with pictures that show the interior of the Globe as used for a nightclub.
The singing group The Wanted filmed their video for the song Show me Love in the Globe.
How convenient that a fire broke out the same time as they were trying to save it. What occupies this site now?
markp yes I remember seeing the name Proctor on a wall when I went to see the Adams.
The status should show ‘demolished’.
The only original area of the theatre still remaining is the balcony but that was used as a separate theatre years ago. However it still retains the original chairs.
I was in the area today and took some photos of the Paramount and one of the Adams'….I doubt these movie palaces will be resurrected. But I hope I’m wrong.
What a shame..I doubt this place will be restored. There is a sign advertising there is 20,000 square feet of retail space.
