What Old Movie Theaters in Brooklyn Look Like Now

I first noticed the Marboro, which had been open since 1927, when I started riding the bus to Brooklyn College. But soon after I'd discovered it in 2002, it closed; I never even got to see a movie there. On Bay Parkway right by Bay Ridge Avenue in Bensonhurst, the theater was demolished in 2007 and replaced with this low retail building, one of the few theaters in this slideshow that was actually destroyed. The entrance was about where the door under the PHOTO sign on the CVS is. See an not-so-old photo at Cinema Treasures.
