It has been many years since I’ve been to Astoria but I must agree with Barbara. Where I remember the moving/storage company to be the building (at that time) had big glass double doors similar to a movie theater. I also remember looking in through the glass as a kid & asking my parents if this was a theater at one time. I also seem to recall that as a kid I remember the marque was still attached above the doors but removed soon afterwards. (I think the theater closed a few years after my birth). Is it possible that the theater was subdivided into 2 separate parts after it closed?
Thanks Len & Warren!
There was a theater back in the 1940s- very early 1950s off 21 street at Astoria Blvd. It was located next to Chappy’s restaurant. It later was used as a moving/storage company building. Unofficially, it was called the Itch. Officially, I don’t know it’s name (maybe the Square for Astoria Square). Anybody know it’s name?
