Cinemart Theater and Eddies Sweet Shop in Forest Hills Today

I didn't care for the movies that were playing at the local multiplex as they were the mass appeal type that are suited for much younger audiences.  I certainly read much about Amy Winehouse in Rolling Stone Magazine, but wasn't familiar with her music, so I thought we'd take a short drive over to the Cinemart Theater on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills.

The film Amy was a documentary about her life and tragic death at age 27.  It is quite sad when entertainers abuse themselves using too much alcohol and drugs but it is more tragic when a singer passes away at such a young age.

After the movie we went across the street to Eddie's Sweet Shop which is an ice cream parlor the way it should be.  When you go there you are taking a trip back to the 1950s  I can't remember the last time I was there but back in the early 1980s I went their regular with Herb, Gary, Howard, and Lenny from Queens B'nai Brith Singles.
