an ad for the Juliet

A small two screen cinema located in the middle of the block on 3rd Avenue between E. 83rd and E. 84th Streets, on the west side of the Avenue. It opened in 1970 and closed in 1978. It was demolished to make way for – yes – you guessed it – another apartment building.

The UA 64th Street & 2nd Ave Theatre is still open. The theatre in question on this thread is located at 1474 3rd. Avenue which is at 83rd. Street. I was just wondering, was looking at some old subway movie posters earlier and it listed the Juliet Theatre at 3rd. Ave & 83rd Street.

Confusing, huh? I just don’t remember anything on 2nd avenue between the Beekman (and awful Loews New York Twin) and the Cine' on 86th st, except for a tiny single screener that’s still there.

The Juliet 1 & 2 opened in late December 1970 with “The Aristocats” and closed in June 1976.

Exit, you’re mistaken. The Juliet was some 20 blocks north of the Columbia/Gemini/UA. A different theatre entirely.

ABC Southeastern Theatres included more than Flordia.Mr.Lewis.

Actually ABC Southeastern EXCLUDED Florida which had a separate ABC Florida State Theatres subsidiary.

For several years after it closed, the Juliet’s marquee read “A Bo a Hi Do” because the last film that played there was “A Boy and His Dog” with Don Johnson.

The Juliet 1&2 was originally opened by ABC Theatres of NY to exhibit its own ABC Pictures. That production arm did not last too long and subsequently the site played other product. It was named after ABC’s Juliet theatre in Poughkeepsie because the powers to be at ABC were so proud of that theatre and the business that it generated. It was located opposite Vassar College. It has not been a cinema since Sept. of 1990 and is now owned by Vassar. It will soon become a college book store. I managed the Juliet in Poughkeepsie for 13 years so that this information is right on.

The Office for Metropolitan History’s Manhattan NB Database says that the theater at 1474-1478 Third Avenue was designed by architect John J. McNamara in 1969.

John J. McNamara also designed the Beekman! Wow I did not know he also designed the Juliets, which was much smaller and less memorable. In fact I thought it was built into a pre-existing structure on site.
