I saw Star Wars and Saturday Night Fever in Kramer theater when they came out in 1977, it was like something out of the Warriors movie by then in that area, and the theater was pretty well armored up too. Explored the ruins of the entire block in the early 80's before they demolished it all. There were tunnels under the whole block for pipes and such, it was adventurous for teens to explore,there was a barber college on that block as well.

Closed in May 1971, reopened briefly in Summer 1972, then turned to adult films and closed again in September 1972.

The Kramer has been demolished and replaced with a Social Security office.

I was about 7 or 8 when my babysitter took me ther to see Jailhouse Rock with Elvis when it first came out. It was about 1958 or so.



I remember all the girls screaming and all the girls were wearing those white and black shoes. What a beautiful neighborhood it was.

A large, ornate, neighborhood theater, seating over 1700, the Kramer was designed by the prolific C. Howard Crane. It was opened in 1920. The theater remained in operation into the early 70s, but has since been razed. Cinema Treasures Link.
