No more Brooklyn Cinema. Any other place like that in NYC? I know about the Fair in Queens but I greatly dislike what it has become. I had so much fun at the Brooklyn Cinema. In fact, and not to boast, I became very popular there. I was known as the male version of Vanessa Del Rio, if you know what I mean. We are in the 21st century but I refuse to believe that adult theatres are a thing of the past. You say?

A friend told me the theatre is being cleaned out. The end of an era.

This should be changed to “closed”.

The owner recently talked about having sold it: https://www.rereleasenews.com/2021/04/09/nick-nicolaou-on-the-alpine-cinema-renovations-selling-brooklyns-last-adult-theater-and-more/

Open or still closed? Anyone pass by the theatre lately? If it’s still closed does anyone know if it will ever reopen?

Too bad it’s currently closed. I had some great meetings there(and some not so great).My favorite part of the theatre was the top floor (what use to be the balcony in the old days). I use to go up there to relax and no one seemed to bother you up there. There is a platform under neath the screen where a very hot Italian boy use to go up there and perform for the audience. He was just a customer and alot of guys would follow him up there just to watch him. A great exhibitionist. Does anyone remember seeing him there?

It’s shuttered and locked. Whoever used to, or still does, own or manage this place, I hope you resurrect Cinema King’s Highway.

It’s Labor Day week and I am on vacation from work and thinking of visiting after almost a year. I’ve read conflicting reports… Is it open or is it not open ??? Before I make my trip can someone let me know. I remember this one hot Italian guy there who use to get up and show off in his briefs. Hope he’s there if it’s open. Please let me know

It’s going to be interesting to see which theaters actually survive the pandemic. I’ve seen reports of AMC ones with expired or expiring leases will not. The possibility that AMC as a totality would go out of business was also mentioned.

Here is another shot of the Jewel theatre from the NYC tax photo collection. http://nycma.lunaimaging.com/luna/servlet/detail/NYCMA~7~7~840785~652976?sort=borough%2Cblock%2Clot%2Czip_code&qvq=q:6664;sort:borough%2Cblock%2Clot%2Czip_code;lc:NYCMA~7~7&mi=13&trs=66

Thanks for those excellent photos, HomecrestGuy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a semi-wraparound marquee before — it’s beautiful.

I just uploaded the old/new NYC Tax Photo of the Jewel, circa 1940, to the photo section. This is probably the oldest pic of the theater available.

I used to work at this theatre back in the ‘70s. There were times that I would sell the ticket; sell refreshments (candy/soda) and run the films! When I was alone, I used to let my good friends in – lasted for a while until my parents found out it was a porn theater and wouldn’t let me work there anymore – lol. Fun times and great memories.
