I believe it would have been a combination of redistributing the space and expanding into adjacent retail space. The theater was located in the shopping center not, as an adjacent building. Hence not building from the ground up. Also, I believe it was on the second level of the shopping center, not the ground floor.
Went out on top
The Orpheum has had a number of successful live productions over the years. I saw Your Own Thing there which opened on June 13, 1968 and ran for 933 performances.
Would be nice if someone had a picture of the theater with the marquee.
Maybe they’ll use the pylon for the OTB operation. Interesting note, the former Jerry Lewis in Lake Ronkonkoma, aka Lakeside Cinema, now houses an OTB outlet. And, as far as pylons go, the one for Century’s Whitman is still up despite the fact that the theater has been gone for a long time. Pylon for the Patchogue Multiplex advertises the new housing development coming in; the one for the Skyway Drive In in Greenport the local Lutheran Church; the one for the Rocky Point Drive In is just derelict.
Please share that photo with us. There is none on CT
rivest266 is Mike Rivest from Montreal, Canada who has created his own website of theaters in the United States and Canada which is available on a down loadable spreadsheet at movie-theatre.org. He has amassed some very interesting material on US theaters figuring he lives in a different country.
You’ve got some work to do, Joe. Only the Antique aka Liberty is on CT.
Bow Tie did not take over all the Clearview locations. The Grand Avenue must be at least the fourth they’ve dropped, most recently the Babylon. This one has life after Bow Tie.
Now they have a campaign to get real theater seats and a marquee and vertical.
I believe these are the people who brought back the Islip. Wonder how that’s going.
So if Sears is leaving Canada that leaves a big hole in Toronto’s marketplace. First Marks and Spencer went, then Eaton’s, now Sears. Who’s going to take over their outlets beside Hudson Bay?
Yes, it’s true. After 30 years it’s bye, bye. When I called the Theater the message referred me to the Cinema Cycle site. On there was more info. Tomorrow, 12/1 is the final, special showing. Subsequently they’ll be having a sale of spinning and movie items.
Was the shutdown permanent or just the usual winter hiatus? I’m going to call the theater and see what more I can determine.
The Town and the Glen Cove were next to each other, almost like formerly cojoined twins. Don’t remember which was to the right, or left, of which. Therefore, the addresses can’t be all that different.
Above comment says Community was built after the theater down the street burnt down. However, the Community is the only theater listed in Catskill on Cinema Treasures. More info so some research can be done. Or somebody create the site.
No longer retail. Now a medical facility. See new photo.
Added a current photo. Roof line (with a man on top) barely visible.
For sale or lease sign on the marquee with a 212 area code.
Current photo of the old girl.
Added front and rear photos of the theater as the Chase Bank.
Still better than when the pylon showed the golf range.
Finally uploaded pictures of the “new” signage which I actually took almost a year ago.
Added current photos of the exterior and interior. A second floor office space was created and the original ceiling supports boxed in. I don’t know what they looked like originally. The detail of the ceiling has been carefully recreated.
Took a lot of months but finally uploaded current photos of the exterior.
