          Yeah, but the sandwiches were ACES.

          • Not from Times Square, but here's a pic of the Fox Theatre in my hometown of Corning, NY from 1955. In the 60's, the Fox was sold and renamed the Corning Cinema.

            In the early 80's the Corning Cinema closed down and there is no longer a marquee there.

                    • 40 plus years ago, I went with a girlfriend to Starvin Marvin's on Yonge Street. Now, if they were still open, I could go back and ask for my senior citizen discount.

                        • The bottom pic is from the Protest against the Decline of Morals in Society.

                          "When it opened in October 1969, Cinema 2000 found a way to slip through a loophole in the current censorship laws by showing films on videotape, which was not subject to censorship by the Ontario Board of Censors. Nevertheless, obscenity charges were filed against the theatre for showing the films commercially. Despite three separate legal proceedings and $40,000 in legal fees, the Court ruled in favour of Cinema 2000, making it the first cinema to win a sex censorship case in Canada.

                          The murder of shoeshine boy Emanuel Jaques in a Yonge Street massage parlour in 1977, combined with a city report recommending ways of dealing with the increasing number of sketchy businesses, led to tighter regulations. Cinema 2000 closed October 10, 1982, with the double bill Hot Cats and On a Waterbed. Even the “Yonge Street is Fun Street” sign above the Funland video arcade eventually vanished."

                          • Speaking of Toronto, when I lived near Bloor & Bathhurst, The Metro was still going strong. I think it's shuttered now.

                            • You'll be happy to know that the Metro was up for sale for 10 years before it was bought last year, re-opened, and is still a porn/arthouse/foreign film theatre.
