Demolition of movie theatre turned church

Our Biff Buttler sends this link to a video of  an East Village, New York City theatre coming apart although there isn’t much in the way of huge wall sections dramatically crashing down:

“Here’s video of workers demolishing the building on the corner of Avenue B and East 12th Street that held the Elim Pentecostal Church and before that, a theater (Bijou / Charles ) that was a locus of 1960s counterculture. . . .”
