I was told that, back in the Vaudeville days, the Keiths Grand Wurlitzer Pipe Organ would rise up to stage level with Bernie at the organ.
Backstage and behind the theatres huge screen would stand tremendous speakers, some the height of the screen.
Once you past the doorman your RKO Theatre experience would begin.
A large and ornate water fountain, with water spitting from it to its pool below, stood in the center of the grand lobby.
I am, however, grateful and honored to have been part of such a most glorious point in time. While there I was introduced to a Viet Cong soldier who wanted to show off his "treasures" from the Viet Nam war. I also remember Miss Clark-Duff, Miss Mc Guirk, Mr. I used to live at 85-44 111th st between myrtle and 86th ave. I used to live in Richmond Hill and would appreciate info on my OLD HOUSE.
He showed me pieces of jewelry and other items supposedly taken from imprisoned or killed American soldiers. My parents just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and i would love to get them a picture of our house as it is today. The address in the late seventies was 94-11 Hollis Court Blvd in Richmond Hill.
My fondest memories of that point in time was when I had the honor of meeting Bob Hope and Lucille Ball, who made a stage appearance for their movie.
And although The RKO Keiths has landmark status it is sad that it will never again be as it once was. Meredith Is there anyone who may assist me w/a digital camera?
On this level you would also find additional seating for relaxing while you might wait for your date.
