@Tinseltoes I remember that “shadowbox” effect on the recessed screen when the theatre was new.
With modern materials the blade could now weigh next to nothing and be twice as bright
Mike Abrahams who had the Lefferts and the Bethpage also operated this.
So is this place still intact? The retail seems to be just in the lobby.
This theatre was making money until it closed but AMC would not continue to operate a twin. The only competition is the 5 screen Fantasy. The problem is the bank owns the building and wants so much money to take it over. They only allow matiness on Sat & Sun because they share the parking lot. I guess its more profitable for them to let it sit empty 6 years then to lower the rent.
All it needs is a curtain
This is what all theatre screens should look like, only thing imagine how great this would look with curtains.
I wish pictures would surface of the later marquee.
Isn’t this really Dixon City, PA?
Isn’t this really Dixon City PA? Ironic this closed, then the UA then the dollar quad now all thats left is the Circle Drive-In.
I can’t believe this place is still sitting empty.
Sadly they have let this place fall to crap
Sadly NA ignores this theatre for the cinder block mess next door.
It has never been updated in the opening but the theatre was reopened again after Loew’s on 2 occasions as an independent, if you read back I posted the information a few years ago.
The sad part is they tore the walls apart and now the place downstairs is a mess. I fear it wont be long till vandals destroy it or a fire breaks out like the Madison. Too bad Bow Tie Cinemas thought it was too much of an investment to reopen.
So so sad
As an indie forget about them getting anything. If they use the main theatre as a mixed use facility but continue to show films, at least its keeping it open. I wonder about the multi-plex next door.
I drove by here last night and the marquee looked like the last days of the old 42nd Street houses. Most of it was burned out and whoever put the titles up did not center anything and there were loads of empty gaps. I have not gone here in a few years but the last time I did it was shabby and run down.
How did they loose so many seats?
A pic of this as a theatre has not turned up yet?
And the last film to ever play the Music Hall, “The Promise” was also a Universal release.
Interesting about Univeral four walling to show their product, thats the first I have heard of that.
Someone needs to have some vision and open a drive-in on Long Island again. Westbury still made money to the day it closed.
Would LOVE to see an Elizabeth Taylor tribute here. Raintree County and Cleopatra need to be seen in a theatre to be appreciated.
The inside pictures look that this could almost have been easily quaded. Century’s did announce the Brook was going to re-open as a quad but it never happened.
