robboehm commented about Riverhead Theater on Mar 30, 2015 at 7:20 am

Upload photo of vintage postcard when it was the Capitol. Mentioned as a link in one of the comments but these links are tenuous. You’ll note that the Capitol had a vertical but no signboard; as Riverhead, the reverse. They also added the Riverhead name to the fa├žade.

robboehm commented about Century's Floral Theatre on Mar 29, 2015 at 10:33 am

Photo of the Floral as it originally was. Despite a vertical reading “Floral” the front of the marquee said Floral Park. I believe a modification, still with signage, was made, but that’s a memory thing. At the time Jericho Turnpike was widened the overhang was too great and the marquee was removed and a slab installed. I believe that was when the vertical also came down. Large signage on the building was then installed. See photo section.

In the last few years of it’s life they added signage to the Wellwood Av and Montauk Highway section of the building above the marquee. It would be nice if someone could find a picture showing that.

robboehm commented about Shore Theatre on Mar 29, 2015 at 10:14 am

Looking at the photo section I see the image of the Shore when it opened. There was a narrow marquee but no sign boards. Latter in it’s life a huge signboard was affixed to the front of the building. You could read it a block over, New York Av, which was the main drag. Probably the intent. Would like to see a photo with that.

Photo added of the theater in the day. Toward the end of its days a crude sign was placed atop the marquee indicating films which were playing.

According to the Historical Society, the Farmingdale was built next door to a building which had housed an earlier theater, the Strand. It opened in 1942 a few weeks after Pearl Harbor. After a fire in 1950 it reopened and lasted until 1984.

robboehm commented about Glen Theatre on Mar 27, 2015 at 8:18 pm

Links no longer work so I uploaded pictures to the photo section. Card says Glen Cove Theater but it was actually the Glen and had a vertical to prove it in later years. Only identifying element is the hanging signs which reads “Motion Pictures”.

Since Colfax was the birthplace of Turner Classic Movies' Robert Osborne on can presume he spent many hours in the Rose.
