Decaying Loew's Canal Theater Makes for Incredible Ruin Porn

New, 1 comment

Every once in a while somebody sneaks inside the abandoned, neglected Loew's Canal Theatre at 31 Canal Street and takes some pictures, and every time those pictures are worth marveling over. The most recent set of photographs, taken at night, giving the cavernous theater an even more creepy and ominous look, comes from ANIMAL NY, who accompanied a pair of graffiti artists and a film crew into the Loew's sometime in February. The resulting video is also worth a watch. Redevelopment plans have never come to fruition for the Chinatown theater, designated a landmarked in 2010, and the historic building continues to deteriorate as it awaits its Kings Theatre moment.
