Gothamist just posted some great photos from inside the Loew’s Canal Street Theater. The facade at 31 Canal Street was protected by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2010. Several years ago, there were efforts to turn the abandoned 1926 architectural gem into a performing arts center, but they fizzled. The owner, Thomas Sung, has been preoccupied fighting off mortgage fraud charges against his Chinatown bank, Abacus Federal Savings. He’s always dreamed of redeveloping the site, creating condos above the old theater. Click here to see the photos.
