As I wrote in the “Colony” slot, PLEASE, does anyone have a picture of this theater in the context of its old setting? It appears this structure and everything that was around it has been razed.

The Bostwick was a neighborhood theatre that opened around 1916. It closed June 4, 1953 and was demolished.
