The Squire was a car dealer show room before it was a theatre…The main floor was and is flat even after they diced it up…That being said…if you look at the youtube again, and look at where the floor and wall meet you can see the floor pitch down…Also some isles are not the same pitch as the seating area, you can see on the clip where they are standing..I don’t think you rule out movies ever being played there..

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, 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

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..

2 has seats also balcony in best shape, they did a few plays there..New ac but, how it was explained to me was to get water from the underground stream and pulled up sand instead made a big mess in # 2…As far as the historical society…I don’t think they really care about the theatre…I go to the Islip street fair every year and when i ask them what are you doing to save the Islip? the guy said “there are many other theatres people can go to”..The small mom and pops around the town want the theatre….

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…
