Inside Coney Island’s Decrepit Movie Palace

Matt Lambros shares more of his fantastic theatre photos.

Biff Buttler tells us about the link to the Shore on Coney Island and notes in his email that there seems to be some Moller organ parts in the chamber as well as some swell shades.

“Two years ago the Shore Theater in Coney Island (formally the Loew’s Coney Island) was declared an historic landmark. Well, its exterior was. The inside of the former vaudeville and movie palace was left to fend to itself, as it has been doing since the 1970s. . . .”

    Makes you want to cry when one sees the terrible condition of the auditorium…of a once grand movie palace. Lets all hope that fortune is right around the corner and the theatre can be saved and used as it once was years ago.
