The abandoned movie theater that the Defenders and Stick end up at with Sowande as a hostage is the Paramount Theatre on Staten Island in the St. George waterfront area, also a film location for the TV show Gotham. The grand theater was open in 1930 with 2,300 seats. According to Cinema Treasures, the theater “was rather unique, because it had a Wurlitzer theatre organ with two consoles, one of only 10 such installations in the USA.”

It is said to be currently under renovation into a multi-use catering and events space.
