This theater was photographed in June 1990 in the Bronx. Can anyone identify it?

That theatre is the old RKO Chester at 1938 Boston Road in the Bronx. It opened on December 26th, 1927. The architect was Eugene De Rosa. The Chester seated 2476 people. The theatre closed in 1968 and has become a warehouse.

The theatre is already listed as #22283 on this site. The true address is 1938 Boston Road. Tremont is a cross street near by.
