The Embassy was considered to be the “better” movie theater in the neighborhood.
The manager was famous.

I grew up in East New York, Brooklyn and remember the Embassy as being close to the Brooklyn/Queens borderline. I can only remember going to the Embassy twice with my father in ‘65 or '66. We saw a rerelease of “The Bridge on the River Kwai” (which I remember being something of a disappointment since my father told me it was the greatest P.O.W. film ever and I so much preferred “The Great Escape.”) and Charlton Heston in the excellent “Khartoum.” And while I do not remember any specifics, I do remember that this was a very nice neighborhood theater.

My name is RoseMarie Randazzo Pellegrinelli, I lived at 3232 Fulton Street where my parents owned Animated Toy Company from 1942 until I married at Blessed Sacarment in 1962. In the early 40’s my Father would rent the movies from the Embassy Theatre and show them to our family, friends and employee’s. Sometime he would set up his projector at the Convent for the Nun’s to see some of the movies. I loved the Embassy, as a little girl I paid 25 cents and latter 26 cents, the extra penny was for tax. The Treatre to me was majestic when you walked in it was like walking into Hollywood, the Red Velvet drapes and red rugs were so lavish. You are right about the ushers, they were scary in their white uniform and holding their searchlight. But it was very well controlled and I felt safe there.
