Early photo of Steinway Street uploaded. You can see the vertical from the theater. Also a later shot showing theater without the vertical and the marquee that was in place to the end.

Uploaded Ed Doyle’s vintage street level photo. These links are getting very tenuous. Also uploaded two American Classic images: street view by night and the marquee on the 165th Street entrance after the theater closed.

Uploaded photo as the Hollis Cinema. Before it was a cinema it was just Hollis in neon letters where the new signage appears.

Roger, if you look at the various addresses the Trent would have been further down the street past the Town and the Proctors. I can’t see it in the 1969 image Ken McIntre linked of Main Street.

New show due to open at the theater. Really miss the Automats though more than a lot of the theaters on this site.

robboehm commented about Queens Theatre on Apr 9, 2015 at 11:06 am

Well, obviously I do since I uploaded the picture. I lived in Bellerose and often walked to Queens Village for one reason or another. Especially at night it was a sight to see the lit vertical when I passed the bend in the road. I believe I was only in the theater twice, once each in the orchestra and the huge balcony. One movie was Say One For Me. In the days of the old steam engines you really knew when a train went past.

What is the current status? A church bought it but the last time I was by a year or so ago there was still scaffolding on the front and the fire escapes had been removed. The latter seemed odd since the church originally was counting on using the full capacity.

Came upon a note I had scribbled when doing some online research. In 1940 there was a major and costly renovation in which the theater was to have been remodeled and redecorated, new seats, screen and marquee and the lobby was to have been enlarged.
