Ken McIntyre, your link no longer works. Could you find the image again but put it in the photos section this time?
Theater reopened for it’s brief summer season on June 19th. Of the four auditoriums, Number 1 is NOT handicapped accessible.
Uploaded an image of the theater. The source was purported to be Cinema Treasures, except it wasn’t on Cinema Treasures for the Marble Hill. So who knows where it appeared before now.
Premiere did reopen it after “lovingly” renovating it.

Uploaded a photo of an RKO advertising matchbook. As far as they were concerned the Marble Hill was in the Bronx.
Uploaded two photos from the Pierce site. The exterior shows the new elevator tower under construction, the interior from way back when.
Uploaded photo from Great Escape period.

And they have $1.00 Tuesdays and free popcorn if you subscribe to their newsletter!!!!!!!!!
Uploaded a photo of the entrance. Remember the day when the name of the theater was displayed not the parent company? And with all the changes happening the updates must cost a pretty penny.
Looking at the photos section the one says it was once called the Major Theater.
And when you look at the shape of the marquee in that picture do any locals notice the similar shape to the Bloor and the former theatre on the same street?
In the absence of an actual image I’ve uploaded a photo of the complex under construction.
The address within the Meads is actually 19 Kingsmead.
Uploaded a current photo of the Picture Theatre, sometimes referred to as the Picture House.
Uploaded an image from a European eBay site of what I believe to be a painting of the Opera House. (Can’t read the eBay description). Have verified it is the Opera House from a number of copyrighted photos which I came upon.
Uploaded several photos. I question the address in the overview since I saw it referenced online as 140 North Main Street. Any Jerseyites can confirm or refute?
Historic Toronto has a detailed history on this theatre which was located at 1154-1156 St. Clair. I’ve uploaded a photo from that site.
“Official” photos uploaded.
Uploaded a non-snow covered marquee photo.

Uploaded a photo in the transition stage, vertical has been removed, auditorium still exists.
The oft postponed hearing is now postponed indefinitely. Now, there is also the additional wait for the Nassau County Department of Public Works to weigh in on a proposal to cut off access to Middle Neck Road from Maple Avenue during the demo. Middle Neck Road is a county road.
If this goes on much longer the building will just fall down of its own accord.
Last week the new marquee advertised a hiring fair.
Good news. It was announced that the theater would reopen by July 4th. The damage from Superstorm Sandy was so extensive that the screens had to be removed and most of the ground floor of the theater rebuilt. There are new digital and 3D projectors in each of the theaters.
Noting the trend by the big distributors for larger, more luxurious seats the replacements will reduce the capacity to 436.
No indication of the cost of the rebuilding was given by the owner who regarded it as a “labor of love”.
There will also be a new ticket reservation system.
