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.
How did you get in?
How did you manage to get inside the theatre? Thanks for sharing.
My older brother worked for a time at the gas station.
I remember how small the ‘lobby’ was and the concession stand was directly behind the auditorium. This was definitely no palace but I saw ABBY, RUBY, SINBAD movies at this place.
I am wondering how long before they tear this down for new construction. The bodega that was next door for almost 50 years recently closed.
