1945 exterior shot of the Loew’s Pitkin Theatre in Brooklyn

Great shot, I wish it was in better focus. The Loew’s Pitkin was one of the highest seller of War Bonds in Brooklyn. I read this in the Variety Magazines of that time. The only theatre I would like to time warp to (along with the 72nd Street). I saw the Pitkin exterior open with “Bloody Mama” and “Wild In The Streets” on the marquee, a rainy Monday afternoon with the marquee and vertical lights on. “L O E W ‘ S” was removed but PITKIN was illuminated in neon, 85% working. Emblazenned in my memory!
