CAPE MAY, NJ — As its demolition nears, residents look back at their beloved Beach Theatre.

Beach Theatre owner Frank Investments plans to demolish the theater to build condominiums. The proposal is bringing back childhood memories for area residents and visitors. Some memories date to the theater’s opening on June 29, 1950.

They are memories of movies played long ago, favorite candies at the concession stand, the Kiddie Land amusement park outside, the television room people crowded into when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and the big Christmas parties every year.
