How much of this theater was “incorporated” into the Granville 7? This site shows some architectural detail from the Coronet. I would like to see a photo of the Granville as it looks today.

The above picture is great. I am amazed all the verticals were still there in 1970. New York got rid of most of them by the late 50’s. A shame they lit up the street so well.

This theatre was incorporated into the Cineplex Odeon Granville 7 which opened around 1987 and is still operating. It’s one of only 2 left on the old theatre row (the other is Famous Players Capitol 6)
