I am interested in acquiring this property. I’ve met and spoken with someone in previous times. My plan is to restore the great old theatre to it’s original natural beauty. This will become a multi purpose facility such as for plays, meetings, films, vocal/ choir rehearsals, museum tours and much, much more. Negotiations are not active and still pending. Anyone with any ideas or wishing to communicate regarding this theater, or simply wish to comment, I can be reached at
Here is a side/rear view of The Pitkin Theater in Brooklyn. The photo was taken in 1930. I thought I’d add this to the collection.
I was fortunate enough to live across the street while the theater was still in operation in 1999 with it’s unique look. After moving out and returned for a drive through the old neighborhood, I cried.
The Jerry Lewis Theater was located at 103-22 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, Rockaway Beach, NY 11693. It rented a corner store front in a new mini mall. However, it only lasted a very short time when the “Surfside Twin” opened up and took over operations. Today the theaters are long gone. (Note: The above location map is incorrect)
I inquired about renting this property and I was informed on Feb 15, 2016 that the property now houses a lumber yard. Too bad as I was really interested in it’s space & history. Anyone have any more historical info?
