Everyone thinks this was a first, to move a theater. It was actually done in Brooklyn in 1904 when the Montauk was moved, intact, not only just down the street, but also rotated! And it was a much larger structure. See elsewhere on CT.

For informational purposes, I found mention of a New Montauk elsewhere. However it never showed movies. But the theater it was to replace has a fascinating history since it was actually moved in one piece. See elsewhere on CT

Turns out the New Montauk never showed movies so doesn’t qualify for CT

Turns out that the New Montauk never showed movies and does not qualify for CT.

John, unfortunately a lot of the old links have expired or are no longer viable. Also, a number of former members have left CT taking their photos with them. So it’s important to get things in the photo section. In addition to scouring various resources, if I’m on a site and see that there is still a viable link, I make a point to make sure it’s also in the photo section.

Added three photos of the theater being moved. According to one source it was due to be torn down because of the traffic approach for the new Manhattan Bridge. Accordingly, the owners purchased land on Livingston Street at Hanover Place for the New Montauk theater in 1904 and opened the New Montauk on Christmas 1905.

Uploaded to photos from Brooklyn Pics. One is purported to be Smith near Fulton. The other Livingston. Were there multiple entrances or is Brooklyn Pics wrong.

Re a comment above from 2005, I found a picture of the New Montauk, on Livingston St, on Brooklyn Pics. Still hasn’t made it to CT.
