Original 1951 The Day The Earth Stood Still Poster. It was used for the opening of the movie in 1951 at the Chester Theatre in New York City (Bronx). Situated near a south entrance to the Bronx Zoo, the Chester Theatre first opened in December, 1927, under Keith-Albee management with vaudeville and movies.When it became the RKO Chester Theatre, the stage bills were dropped at the onset of the Depression. The double-feature programs were always first-run for the area, but day-and-date with other RKO outlets in the Bronx. The theatre is probably best-remembered for being mentioned in Paddy Chayefsky's TV play and movie, "Marty". When the theatre closed in 1968, its auditorium was converted into a warehouse, then later a car repair garage. The building stood for many years, with its adjoining office space and stores housing the Alps Hotel, a so-called "hot sheets" establishment. It was demolished in May 2010.
