The auditorium portion is now vacant. The dog rescue group has moved elsewhere.

In the Google Maps view, the theatre entrance is occupied by the Halal Kitchen with purple canope. A bit of the auditorium roof can be seen in the background. The auditorium is now used by a dog rescue group.

The auditorium portion is becoming home to a canine rescue group. One can now say that the 43rd Street Theatre has truly “gone to the dogs.” Article and photos here: View link

The premises are currently vacant and being advertised for rent. I don’t know if that includes conversion back into a theatre. The owner can be reached at 718-786-1900…Here’s a new link to the opening day ad mentioned above:

The 43rd Street Theatre first opened on November 10th, 1938 with a double-bill of “B” movies in their first Sunnyside engagement. Advertising described it as “A Blessed Event In The Century Circuit Family of Theatres,” with the 43rd Street as “The Darling of the Family.” Here it’s shown with its two Century siblings in Sunnyside, the Bliss and Sunnyside. Note the circular Century logo, which says “20th Century Entertainment” in the triangular center:

Sadly, the auditorium is currently used as a warehouse for a retailer of Christmas decorations, while just a block west on Greenpoint Avenue, the “legit” Thalia Spanish Theatre uses a converted store as its home. I wish that a swap could be arranged, but I doubt that will ever happen.
