I was informed by a long time reader of the blog and good friend that the folks over at the Pavillion Movie Theater are not doing the right thing.
Someone in charge is dropping the ball.
The United States Flag is being disrespected.
What a disgrace!
You mean to tell me someone can’t get out on the roof and fix ‘Stars and Stripes’?

Here’s my guy with his take.
For the last 2 weeks I have noticed from my terrace that the US Flag was not flying properly from the Pavilion Theater. I am attaching a picture taken this morning from my terrace. I have gone to the theater on 5 occasions and asked the management to bring in the US Flag since it is not being flown properly, it is dragging on the roof of the marquee, it is not on the staff flying properly. Even when flown at night it should be taken in, or a light is supposed to be shining at the flag if left out, and that is not the case when left out. I was told every time by management, the staff is broken and the flag cannot be flown properly. I ask then simply take the flag in and show the flag its proper respect. They say I should mind my business and they will hang it when the flag pole is fixed.This is a theater that is on a street that was renamed this past year, the name is right in front of the theater, as “Julian Brennan Way.” Lance Corporal Brennan (USMC), 25 died on January 25, 2009, while supporting combat operations in Farah province in Afghanistan, he lived on Prospect Park West down the street from the theater. Also, Bartel Pritchard Square across the street from the theater holds in the middle of the circle a monument from the VFW P.J. Devaney Post #964, which was placed there in 1965. It reads “In memory of the men of this community who gave their lives in wartime service to their community” on the other side it states “For valor and sacrifice.”The laziness of the management of the Pavilion Theater is an embarrassment that they will not open a window and take in the US Flag and show its proper respect while we have brave men and woman still overseas fighting and protecting our freedom. In a few weeks will be the Brooklyn Irish American parade that will start and finish in front of this same theater, a wreath will be placed at the circle honoring those lost from our community from the tragedy of 9/11. With all this around them they still do not show the respect for our US flag.I hope that people will Boycott this theater until they get their act together and learn what respect is. Simply opening a window and taking in the flag is just too simple. They also have no problem having the marquee changed when the movies change but bringing in the flag seems to be below these individuals.
