I added a photo of the LoewsPost Road…for those who want to see it.

The building has been cleaned up (except the graffiti covered vertical sign) and has reopened as a supermarket. The owners have a large wall honoring the history of the theatre with some lovely pictures and posters. You can easily make out the theatre highlights and projection booth.

That link has been displayed here since 2004. See Erwin M’s posts above of 7/8/04. I think that the photos were on the Internet well before that.

This theater to my recollection, was north of the Melba theater on Boston Post Road, almost directly across the street from: John’s Bargain Stores, and Ionatti Meats. Had it’s popularity dwindle in the 60’s, when it fell, like so many other movies houses to a Bingo Hall. Nice area in the late 50’s early 60’s.

This was where i saw the first James Bond movie “DR NO” AND Believe it or not it was the second feature. This theater is about two blocks east of the Melba on Boston Post Road.

Thomas W. Lamb was architect of the Post Road, according to historian Michael Miller’s list of Bronx theatres.

Erwin, after Loew’s gave up the Post Road, the Bolte Circuit took over and simply added its name to the marquee to save the expense of removing that of the original owner. But in newspaper advertising, it was just the Post Road, with Bolte in fine type above that. The Bolte Circuit was a small chain of Bronx nabes owned by John C. Bolte. It had its HQ at the Wakefield Theatre on White Plains Road. At one time or another, Bolte also operated the Burke, Laconia, Melba, Bainbridge, and B-B Theatres.

This theater is now a church known as the Cathedral Baptist Church.
Was this theater ever known as Loew’s Bolte??
