As of 7/15/11 nothing occupies the space. It is an empty shell with forlorn signs on the windows “to let”,

Your right! It was never called the Puerto Rico. It kept playing spanish movies as the Boulevard till the early 80’s. When it sadly closed. Remember going to see a couple of spanish movies in the mid 70’s. And was very impress with how awsome it looked. Sorry to see it closed and turn in to what it is today.

For many years after Loews closed the Boulevard it was operated by an independant who called it The Puerto Rico. They created 2 or 3 theatres in the balcony and kept the huge orchestra as it was. They presented live Spanish shows, I think in collaberation with the Commodore in Brooklyn. Many times they only ran movies in the upstairs cinemas because the main house was so big to heat and air condition.

This theatre is now a furniture store and a children’s clothing store.
