It seems like we have an exhaustive list of theaters in NYC and Brooklyn. However, I looked for the other four theaters in the Harris chain on CT and didn’t see any of them under their current or former names. I saw a Sunset Theater in Brooklyn but not NYC. There was also the Loew’s Broadway in NYC, but I wasn’t sure if that was the one that Harris was running in 1967. I’m not familiar with NY theaters, so if someone could fill me in I would appreciate it.

Thanks. I see that you mentioned the San Juan aka back in April 2005, but it wasn’t added as an aka. You also mentioned the Beverly Hills as an aka for the Audubon.

Sure thing, Rodney. “I told my wife I wanted her to talk to me during sex. She said OK. Next night, she called me from a motel”. Ba dum bum.

I added the Sunset at the 125th Street address.

It’s a team effort.

It could be Loews Broadway, but I have no way to check. You may be right on the porn theater. It could be a new aka for some older house in Brooklyn. Probably not one of the storefront porno places if it was part of a chain.

Listed in the 1960 Manhattan yellow pages. Phone number was Enrght 9-9878.

Love those mnemonic devices they used for phone exchanges years ago. That sort of charm has been lost to antiquity. Thanks ken mc. Might not be necessary, but a fun tidbit nonetheless. Warren, please re-post a new link to the photo you originally posted on Feb 8th.

The Regun appears in a December 1922 ad for TESS OF THE STORM COUNTRY so it was no longer the Imperial by then.

This may have been operating as the LENOX in 1968 advertised for “Coogan’s Bluff” in the NYT.
