Belvedere Theatre 2004

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the Glendale section of Queens. This theater was all on one level. I never remember it being open although the gaudy old marquee made it into the 1970’s. It was closed many years before becoming a ladies dress store, which actually restored the theater to its original splendor but the floor was leveled. It is now a church.

My mom remembers going to this theater with my grandmother in the 1950’s because my grandmother was collecting the dishes they were giving out. She remembers the bill changed three times a week, I guess sub-run double bills.

The Stop & Shop would become a 3,500 seat sanctuary with a 3-story indoor parking garbage.

Did you buy all those two family houses that were knocked down last year adjacent to the Stop and Shop parking lot?

no.

We just paid cash for the house behind our building. The owners of the gas station & the triangle across the street will be selling their properties to us and we have the money & will own it in 2008. The triangle is between 64th Place & cypress (between Sakuri japenesse restuarant and Stop & Shop.

That was actually was suppose to be a police station but that never happened. Whenever Stop & Shop becomes available, we would also be able to get that too.

When & if Stop & Shop will be for sale… no one knows.

I heard this building was up for sale last summer, is it still a church?

Seems a vintage photo of the Belvedere operating as a theatre has still not turned up.

I wonder if this church ever thought of buying the much larger Ridgewood Theatre?
