CBDebill..When you worked there was Dotty MGR.?
LOGAN5…Somewhere on this site are pictures of opening night..I was there….
Where are the pictures…
Finian at Penthouse that’s where I saw it.
PS: IF YOU CHECK THE PHOTOS I TOOK AND ED POSTED ON APRIL 9TH THE SIGN THE LEASED SIGN WAS THERE…
IF YOU WANT TO ASK AGAIN CALL THE AGENT IN JULY 2ND.
THE LEASED SIGN HAS BEEN THERE THAT LONG…CVS THOUGHT THEY HAD IT BUT LOST IT…TOWN DIDN’T WANT IT…
The only reason I brought it up, you said in Sept. “The Studio 54 reference was lost on him.”
I do understand what you mean…But, if it was my theatre
and I told someone about cabaret seating, I would not like anyone saying it will be like Studio 54…When anyone hears Studio 54 they don’t think about the seating. They think the disco and coke era..not the way it is today…I don’t think it was lost on him,it was the image that came to mind. All in all, you were right about the seating and life is a cabaret..
PS: I was reading an old post…Studio 54 ref. When you do a big make over, you have to take out all the seats til' it is safe [for the seats] to put them back..This will be a live show prof. arts center ie: Northport and Patchogue..
Ed and company…was at Riverhead Country Fair Sunday..
I also got a tour of THE SUFFOLK THEATRE…They will be giving updates and photos to CT soon…looking to ad 30 feet to the stage through the back stage wall..if you are in the area and the doors are open stop in..
Ed, don’t know if this helps…WRIV radio is 40 West Main
in the Landmark Bank Build….and I know the Suffolk is east of WRIV on the same side of the road and could not have an odd number address…
This may be a repeat of something I said but, the area left of the condo sign and to the right of vogue store was an alley that was the area where all the eastside of the Playhouse fire escapes and the apt. fire escapes would come together to take them to the street…under the stairs was a dumpster for apt. and Playhouse..the area was all open then…and store with the black sign 2nd from the left was the Playhouse entrance……more later..
The apts. you see on Middle Neck road are the same ones that have been there since 1923…they just fluffed them
up and called them condos…Ed that picture you took looking south…has always looked that way…the shorter of the three was back stage entrance that would take you to the dressing rooms and under the stage…more soon
My mother saw Sinatra there……anyone who was there are in the late 80’s or 90’s now..
ps i don’t know what i het to get red and large
It is still a triplex but when the last people wanted it to be some kind of multi- use they took the seats out of theatre 1 for live shows dance and party area..
There was a East Islip With about 475 seats..go to the top of this page put Islip see all the Islips west and east.
Thanks… keep an eye out for Lindenhurst also.
I talked to Greg today, who is trying to lease Islip..
He knows about CT. He told me Clearview not interested..
So, if anyone knows someone who wants this theatre call 631 328 1020..
I talked to the agent for the theatre, John at 631 982 2100, He said “CVS deal dead in the water for now”…
If anyone knows anyone from Clearview, UA or private owners, give them the number above…
CVS wants that corner again…town sez they don’t like plans for the drive through…..
It’s has 3 theatres now….and you’re right about the ease to get there….
Lindenhurst is for rent boats are gone…still in great shape,,,Islip has for rent signs…Here’s two for you Clearview..
Ed, tried to e mail you some photos…. i tried that quan
somthing but it keeps returning it..please e mail me.
Also, next to my last comments April 27th and 29th it says (remove) whats that about?
Looking at the the condo entrance..there use to be an alley there for the Playhouse exits and there was also a door that lead to back stage…there was also a door that lead to the boiler room under the Playhouse Box office, it gave heat to both theatre and condos..
The strange roof top structure is a large fan that would pull the heat from the projection booth, there was no ac….the windows on the top belong to the booth…The windows above the garage were covered years ago on the 2nd floor…The exit doors where the garage entrance is now, to the left and right of the exits there was a stair
case on both sides that lead to 2nd. floor to balcony…more later!
