This isn’t the Prospect Theater in Flushing,Queens. This Prospect theater that was featured in the movie “The New York Ripper” was actually in Brooklyn, NY.

I’ve done a bit of detective work this evening on the internet, and it isn’t that location either, Ed. The “Prospect” cinema/theatre as seen in Lucio Fulci’s “New York Ripper” (1982) was actually located on the West side of Prospect Avenue in The Bronx, and is listed on this site as the “Olympic Theatre”. You can tell it was that location as the Google street view clearly shows the distinctive steps up to the train station from the street, and you can see them in the film as well (actress Almanta Keller walks down them and then past the building in one scene towards the end of the film.)

Thanks Dez. I love the neon purple-pink lettering on the marquee. Nobody uses that anymore.
