Movie Theaters around Old Brooklyn

Does anyone remember the movie houses in our neighborhood? We once had a field trip from Memphis School 3rd grade to see a matinee movie at the old Lyceum Theater on Fulton Road. I can't remember the film we saw, but I do remember going back to the Lyceum to see a Vincent Price movie called the Wax Museum. Here's an image of the old Lyceum. As most of you know, there is a library there now. Click on any image to enlarge.
That's me in the projection booth of the old Broadview Theater on Pearl Road. It was taken just before it was torn down in the late 80's. I was able to purchase the 3-movie projectors from the old Broadview. I'm checking with the Old Brooklyn Development Corporation to see if they have any images of the Broadview. I can't seem to find any on the web. If you have any images of our old school or our neighborhood, please send them in.
