YONKERS, NY — The Grinton Will Library, 1500 Central Park Avenue, in Yonkers has a few pictures of the former RKO Proctors and Loew’s theaters, both located on South Broadway in downtown Yonkers. Loews later became Brandt’s Yonkers. The display is titled “Yonkers Then and Now”, and features many interesting photos as well.

FYI: The photos belonging to the Yonkers Planning Dept would be available for copying under the Freedom of Information Law in the event you like them after seeing them on display. Most others belong to the Yonkers Historical Society which may sell reproductions.

P.S to my posting above…….When Loews became Brandt’s Yonkers, a new marquee shaped like a triangle was erected. Almost identical to the one down the street in the still vacant Park Hill Theater.
Jehovah’s Witnesses have been occupying it on and off in recent years. And I got in for a peek during one of their services.
