Work to renovate Westbury Theater begins
WESTBURY, NY — A long-delayed renovation project has begun to turn the closed Westbury Theater into a multi-use venue, including movie showings. The theater opened in 1927 and is designed in a Tudor-revival style.
“This is really the culmination of our downtown revitalization process,” said Village of Westbury Mayor Peter Cavallaro, as his voice rose above Post Avenue traffic and the sounds of construction work on the theater roof.
“This project is the keystone of what we have in mind for Post Avenue. We look at it as a magnet for new businesses, new consumers and new residents,” Cavallaro said. He also recognized the assistance of the county in providing essential community development funds before welcoming Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano.
