The Valentine was where my sons and I saw the first run of “Tora Tora Tora”. My wife wasn’t interested.

I did not specify which type of photo was easy to find. Perhaps you have hours to spend finding one undated photo of this theatre. I have a real life and other activities that consume my time. If I had no life or friends as you do I would also be able to find vintage photo’s. It’s a matter of priorities fella.

A photograph of the Valentine Theatre I took in June 2005:

The structure on the top end of the roof could be the projection booth of the former 482 seat;open air Roof Theatre.

I seem to recall that the Valentine had a very strangely shaped marquee. It seemed to be in the shape of a half of a heart.

Mr. Farley, indicated that there were several other theaters on Fordham Road? Could someone enlighten me on the others that were on Fordham? I only recall the Valentine. There may have been one other near VIMS?

Just a memory from my moveigoing childhood in the Bronx.My mom took me to see Mary Poppins at the Valentine, and when we came out we learned Malcolm X had just been shot in Harlem. I am finding it amazing all the memories that perusing this sight brings back. Thank you for the sight

The Valentine was a Loews house at the end and closed in 1987.

A 1971 image of the theatre, with “UA” clearly visible on the marquee, can be found here:
