Some parts yes, some parts no.
The old cruiser probably had a coaster brake.
Headset & bottom bracket likely are different.
Pictures would help.
Since you have both frames, close examination by you should reveal quite a bit.

Does the old frame and fork have similar mounting points (bosses) for V-brakes? You can't mount the brakes in thin air.
