Homage to The Sunshine

Is it really closing?
my favorite NYC movie theater.
And rumor is that the developer
is not even keeping
the iconic front of the building

It opened in 1909
as a Yddish vaudeville venue
Re-named Sunshine in 1917,
was the Chopin theater
until it closed in 1945
and became storage
But still with that iconic front
i think.

And
since the mid-1990s
It has been
the Sunshine cinemaIMG_7744
screening all of my favorite flicks
on the same Houston street
block as the
Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery

I hope they will stay….
But that is just a hope.

Please go and try a Knish today…
