Does anyone recall the old button factory located around 69 th street behind the theater? I’m sure the building must be gone by now.

The Theatre is still definately at 7212 Bergenline. The theatre you are thinking between 68 and 70-th could bethe Alvin. Which was listed as 32 Bergenline. But since the street numbers changed no one is really sure where it was.

Interesting Photo’s. I sure my memory has faded over the years but I remember the theater being located between 68 Th & 70 Th streets. I was only 4 years old at the time back in 1946 but I can still recall walking to the movies on a Sat afternoon all by myself. My grandmother would have to come to the theater & drag me back home since they would repeat the cartoons over again after the main feature.

A Robert-Morton organ was installed in this theater in 1928. It is listed as the “New” Embassy Theatre.

I was born and raised in Fairview, NJ the next town over and as a child, I took the 22 Hillside bus down Bergenline Ave. to the Embassy theater. It was one of those wonderful old theaters with dark red velvet seats, chandeliers, beautiful lobby. I moved out of NJ at 20 in 1972 and always wondered what happened to it. It lives in my memories, and I wrote a short story about it, you can access it online by typing in its title, The Last Cool Summer, or my name.
