When going to the movies used to be special

One of the things I miss about going to the movies are the theater palaces I went to. Places like the Loews Valencia in Queens and the Loews King in Brooklyn were magnificent spaces to watch a film. The atmosphere they brought made going to the movies a very special event.  (Loews Valencia)l1


From the smell of popcorn as soon as you walked into a great hall, to the ushers who showed you to your seat using a flashlight, and to the dramatic design on the walls and stage.  Wow!

Those places are mostly gone now. Many of them have become churches and are touching lives in a different way.

What we’re left with (see below) are sterile multiplex theaters with absolutely no personality other than feeling like you’re sitting in a giant shoe box.l3


It’s a shame and you young folks don’t know what you missed!
