She wasn’t the only traffic director on LI. There was an elderly man in a baseball uniform on Rt 25A in Wading River.

I think they’re taking the wrong route re design which has chairs and tables on tiers on the main floor, like Studio 54 in NYC. Already sounds like they’re going upscale. Altho' a smaller venue I like Westhampton Beach Performing Arts. They have name performers, children’s programs, workshops and four series of independent films (in the summer, with a speaker).

In a surprise move, the theater which usually operates year ‘round, closed suddenly for a break before spring. Don’t think this was intended but the severe weather with it’s lingering snow must have been a factor. Also, in 2013 the bargain Tuesdays now cost $ 5.00 rather than the previous $ 4.00. Still a major bargain.

Big hoopla about the opening including a party where guests are encouraged to dress in 1930’s attire. Go to Suffolk Theater.com.

Oft times it’s also building codes and permits that kill projects such as the theatre in Stapleton, Staten Island.

According to the marquee, the Suffolk will reopen on March 2nd as a performance space.

scoldsteve – since you’re in the area perhaps you could get the address and ad it to the heading on this site.

I saw on some other site that there was a shooting at this theatre two days after the CT school incident???

A far cry from when it opened as a single screen theatre and the capacity was 2,200.

I saw La Cage there also. Had an aisle seat. Laughed so hard at one point that I wound up in the aisle.

Yes, the Bellaire did become a bowling alley, split level. This struck me as odd because I seem to recall them having flooding issues.

Thanks for the clue Jorge. It actually appears as City Line.

Amazing that the area can support a single screen theatre of this size.

How many performing arts venues can LI sustain? You have the Patchogue, Westhampton Beach, Engelmann(at Northport), CM (at Oakdale), Smithtown, Paramount (at Huntington)soon to be Westbury and Suffolk (Riverhead), all former theatres PLUS Bay Street in Sag Harbor and a myriad of others.

Address can’t be too far off the Google picture is of the marquee which is now used by the church.

Could somebody link the Village photo with it’s site on CT.

Photo in the heading is actually of the East Hampton Cinema which was built on the same site after the Edwards was destroyed by fire. There is a linked photo of the Edwards in the comments area.

Question to FatMan, above. You mention the Kinema and Cityline. Don’t find Cityline on CT. Perhaps it’s there under another name and no cross reference was provided?

robboehm commented about Hollis Cinema on Nov 15, 2012 at 8:02 am

I was never in the Bellaire but the exterior certainly looked “itchy”. I remember hearing stories about how the Bellaire would have water on the floor after a rain. I found it really odd when it was converted into a two level bowling alley. The lower one must have really flooded. I was in the Hollis once, see an earlier posting. I found the surroundings pleasant even though the projectionist on that day was totally incompetent missing cues, cursing loudly at his own frustrations, etc..

robboehm commented about Capitol Theatre on Nov 7, 2012 at 1:11 pm

As a sometimes visitor of Toronto, is there some “local” about the shape of the marquee – I’m thinking the Capitol, Bloor and the other one on Bloor now retail.

As you can see above I tried to get that but encountered a really stiff-nosed manager worthy of the old Westbury.

robboehm commented about Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Nov 7, 2012 at 5:17 am

Originated as Westhampton. Original marquee still used. WHBPAC created after UA dropped it from the roster. Purchased for a relatively small sum, under $250,000, I believe. A lot of $$ into the restoration and expansion of the facility. A jewel.

robboehm commented about Sands Point Theatre on Nov 4, 2012 at 7:21 pm

The address is wrong in that it is the one for the now defunct (but maybe reopening) Soundview Cinemas. The old Sands Point occupied pretty much the same site but the Market Place address was not in effect at that time.

The owners of the Suffolk have been granted tax abatements for ten years to help defray the several million dollar renovation cost of the premises. Work is being delayed by additional work so the targeted opening of December 2012 may be pushed to the spring of 2013.

robboehm commented about Amity Theatre on Oct 21, 2012 at 3:58 pm

As you can see from the “in course of demo” picture the theatre was fairly large; very long. I don’t recall a balcony. That wasn’t common place in an AIT venue.
