Here are some newspaper items concerning the Arverne Pier Theatre.
Published in The Wave on February 6, 1904.
The Arverne Pier Company has filed with the Bureau of Buildings of the Borough of Queens, plans for a new music hall and theater and a pier, all to be built south of the Boardwalk between Gaston and Vernam avenues. The music hall, which, with the theater, is to be built out upon the pier, will be 71 feet by 120 feet and the theater 50 feet by 100 feet, two stories. It is estimated that the entire work will cost $100,000.

The moving pictures at the Pier Theater have made a hit and hundreds of delighted summer people nightly enjoy the funny scenes depicted on the big canvass. The matinees for the little ones are pleasant features. The regular vaudeville season will be inaugerated Saturday afternoon, when a strong bill, headed by the popular Billy Van, will be given.
There will be performances Saturday and Sunday evenings. The theatre has been entirely refurnished and will prove to be one of the most pleasant resorts on the beach.
