Loew's 46th st. Theatre

What a thrill to view this link today. This was my neighborhood Loew's theatre when I was growing up in the Boro Park area of Brooklyn. The first memory I have is seeing Singin In The Rain in 1952 when I was all of 5 years old. I may have seen films here earlier than that. I saw literary 100's of movies here, had my first sexual encounter here as a teen and I had no idea how grand the theatre was. I did get in to see the theatre around 15 years ago telling the furniture owners that I was interested in buying some items. I didn't see the theatre like this but did manage to walk around the lobby and the mezzanine outside the balcony. My father's luncheonette was only a block away.  What a shock seeing these photos.
