I agree. Many of them are a hoot. The ones for the Rialto/Savoy were right up there, too, as you will recall. And what I find interesting about the ads we see is that the little neighborhood theaters often have bigger ones than some of the Loew’s. As for addresses and locations so many communities and streets, particularly in Queens, have been renamed leaving theaters with totally improbable names such as Polk or Willard and actual locations by today’s designations questionable (such as our recent Arverne discussions).

LM, Ed Solero was right in the comment he made on another site. So many of the news articles from the early days sound like press releases. “Fitted up with every convenience” indeed.

Contrary to the overview above the, at that time, Apollo, was advertising in the Brooklyn Eagle in 1928. Further research is needed to determine the actual opening date.
