About the event:
Across Bay Ridge, what are now gyms, chain stores, and supermarkets were once movie theaters, with only one of these cinemas (the Alpine) remaining. This tour will not only uncover the history of these buildings but also shed more light on neighborhood history and the story of Brooklyn and New York at the movies.
