This theater opened in the late 1950’s. The first feature was a Frank Sinatra movie and the Northport High School Marching Band played. Longtime rumor had it that Frank Sinatra was actually there as well!
The theater closed in 1985 and the last feature to play there was Ken Russell’s “Crimes of Passion”. It then became some sort of “church” for a year, then an office space (that I do not think anyone has ever rented?). MOVIES I HAVE SEEN THERE: Escape from the Planet of the Apes, The Stepford Wives, The Love Bug, The Legend of Boggy Creek, The Towering Inferno, Hair, Midnight Express, Tales from the Crypt, Vault of Horror, Asylum, Arnold,The Eyes of Laura Mars and the above mentioned Grease/Saturday Night Fever double feature. The lobby had candy machines as well as a snack bar. Loved the Bonomo Turkish Taffy! The seats were UNCOMFORTABLE and not paddeed that well.

I remember my Dad taking me here when I was about four to see “Jaws.” Oh, did I love that movie! Wasn’t scared at ALL and I remember being excited when we went to Universal Studios in California that year and saw ol' Bruce pop out of the water! I also remember going to see one of the “Pink Panther” movies (never laughed so hard at that time) and a double-feature of “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever” (my Mom made sure that we left when “SNF” came on—I was six at the time).

Don’t remember too much about this theater, though—when did it close? I think towards the end of its life, it was a second-run house, right?

Located at 81 Larkfield Road. 500 seats. One screen. Independent theater owned by Stuart and Sarah Baker, and sort of associated with AIT, but not quite. Booked by Lightstone. Closed in the early 1980’s.

It’s still there but has been converted to offices.
