    The Fair Theater, Queens New York

    Went for a walk a few weeks ago and forgot I took these pictures. Didn't have my camera with me, just my phone, so they're not exactly suitable for framing but whatever.

    Anyway, this place is on Astoria Boulevard one neighborhood or so away from us.

    Some background info here, the comments are interesting.

    I've never been in but it looks like there are 5 different screens and that as recently as a couple of years ago they'd been showing porn as well as a lot of Indian films. The promo material for the Indian film you can see in the images below has been there for a few years.

    I don't honestly know that I've ever seen anyone go in or out of the place. I'm not entirely sure it's even still 100% operational as NYC is shut down at the moment, so you couldn't go in even if you wanted to.

    There's also a documentary about the place here.

    Anyway, I've always liked the old school marque and wanted to check out the interior - maybe once this covid-19 stuff is all over with I'll be able to do that.
