The Yost is the subject of a segment of tonight’s Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. Major haunting.

Go to the comments section with a posting by Warren G. Harris on May 4, 2008 which has links to photos of a functioning RKO Jefferson. Also read Warren’s comments elsewhere about the Billy Rose Collection.

If you look carefully at the photo you can detect the words “Opera House” on the facade of the building. Therefore, this is a picture of the predecessor of the Arcade.

Thanks to whoever loaded the photo above. When I spoke to people in the historical society they said they (a) had no photo and (b) no theater was subsequently built on the site. Living on Long Island it’s unlikely that I’ll be doing anything more about this theater; certainly don’t envision a trip to Cooperstown.

Tinseltoes the problem is unless you are a subscriber to the Wall Street Journal online you can’t access the story. A synopsis please.

According to references in The Long Islander, the St. James housed summer theater performances in 1934.

Well if the theater was sold and it’s going to be a CVS that is not apparent. All the real estate signs are still up and there is no CVS sign. Certainly if it were a done deed three months would be sufficient to at least change the signage.

From the photo above you can see the windows and skylights added for the new second floor.

Geoffrey Fleming was able to find material on the construction of the St. James which I’ve included in the revised heading. Apparently the date of the aerial photo alluded to previously is CIRCA 1927. Probably more like 1930.

During the period when it was split up into 7 auditoriums it was known as the Village Cinemas.

Presumably the A.H. Schwartz was the Schwartz who started the Century Circuit.

The individual theater entries show demolished when applicable. The demolished is not an option on the general listing pages.

Long awaited opening of The Space at Westbury is being touted for August. Still nothing on the official web page.

This was built as a replacement for the Town Square Triple which had been acquired as part of the Martin Theaters purchase.

Warren Harris is no longer active on this site. He took the links with him when he left.

Despite the new facade added to the shopping center the top of the theater is visible from a distance. When you go around the back it’s very obvious since the theater was longer than the other stores are deep.

robboehm commented about Mayfair Theatre on Jun 30, 2013 at 1:43 pm

Going around the rear of the shopping center it is my opinion that the Mayfair was located on the far West of the main strip, although not the end space. Very typical structural elements. Therefore, if I’m correct it is now the site of the Good Luck Chinese Buffet which is listed as 200 Jericho Turnpike.

robboehm commented about Islip Cinemas on Jun 30, 2013 at 1:36 pm

Didn’t find any listing in the newspaper show times or on Fandango so drove by. It’s open as the Islip Cinemas. They don’t have a webpage but are on Facebook. Contrary to originally published reports prices are not super cheap. 2D is $7.50; 3D is $10.50. Lobby is gray with a white tray ceiling.

Good. Have to give it a try. Now all we need is for the grand opening of the Westbury, the Sandy ravaged Long Beach and the Glen Cove negotiations and all will be back online.

Now for $5.00 you can’t get any ONE of the above.
