An Abandoned 'Hollywood' Theatre In The East Village Of NYC

I have always wondered what was in this building! It always caught my eye because on the street level is a bodega but above it is a large brick building with no windows and a spooky looking staircase and walkway that goes up and into a doorway.  Well now I've learned that inside this building above the bodega is an abandoned awesome theatre! I don't understand why no one has restored it and put it back into action? If I had a spare million or so I totally would.  Read about it here and look at the photos:
