The last chunk of The Dover theater collapsed during recent blizzard. So sad. I loved this place. Here’s a pic.

Thanks Lost. BTW, where do you live?

Thanks for that interesting bit of info, Lost. I’m really concerned about the status of many old theatre buildings in the South Bronx, now that so much new construction is under way. I now take regular walks past my favorites to be sure they’re still standing. (I live in Fordham.) I’ve always appreciated the church groups who took over old theatres because the buildings are best preserved that way.

Did you get that “stop work order” info from a city website? And if so, can you provide us with a link? Have you gleaned pertinent info about other Bronx theatres that way? Thanks in advance.

I’ve walked by this building several times in the past few weeks. The signage for the Pentecostal church, which had been on the marquee of the old theatre, is now gone. Which leads me to believe the church has gone out of business. The marquee structure is still there, but stripped down to its steel beams.

The Dover was still open in 1974.
