    2-Disc DVD Set
    A View From THE STOOP & Memories From THE STOOP
    Expanded with All New Material

    3 Hours Running Time
    Narrated by Marvin Scott, Broadcast Journalist & Bronx Native

    Looking at the past through rose-colored glasses is an expression that doesn’t apply to those who grew up and came of age in The Bronx (the only borough that requires an introduction!). Our precious memories are proof-positive that those rosy glasses just aren’t necessary.

    Back In THE BRONX is extremely proud to present a brand new DOUBLE DVD collection of nostalgic memoirs culled from over 50 hours of transport tapes, home movies, and film clips from our readers, along with additions to our photo gallery of over 7,000 Bronx neighborhood pictures, many of which are a contribution from New York City’s Municipal Archives.

    1 Hour Running Time
    Produced & Written by Stephen Samtur

    If you grew up in The Bronx, and you wanted to impress that special someone, what movie theatre would you take her to? More than likely, it would have been the Loew’s Paradise on the Grand Concourse. Anybody over 50 years of age will never forget this theatre. It had a majestic charm, a romantic atmosphere accented by the wispy clouds and bright sparkling lights overhead. For most, the magnificence of this palace could never be fully realized because we were just too young to appreciate it. Back In THE BRONX has been given total access and is the first to film this multi-million dollar theatre restoration, and now everyone (including your grandchildren) will have the unique opportunity to see it again through an adult’s perspective, on this 1-hour DVD.
