The Last Picture House in Harlem
Steven Melendez has mapped the rise and fall of movie theaters in New York over the last eighty years. Movie Theaters of NYC allows you to view an animated Google Map of movie theaters in New York since 1940.
The map shows the popularity of cinema in the 1940's and 1950's and then a gradual decline from the 1970's to the present day. Each of the markers displayed on the map include links to read more about the selected movie theater.
