According to the Vincent Seyfried book we used for the FNY Corona page, there were several incarnations of the Hyperion Theater – it kept being moved, renamed, got new owners, etc. So we all may be correct about its location(s). Eddie, the hot dog guy, is supposedly still in business, although he sells out of a van now rather than a cart according to someone who wrote to me about the page.

I noticed that too. This article explains the reason Lopez is listed. Apparently, he was more popular at the time than the stars of the movie. This seems to have been a particularly risque film for the time period, but then again it was the Roaring Twenties.

The marquee in the photo of the Maspeth Theater on Forgotten-NY.com reads “Vincent Lopez in Mad Dancer.” The photo was taken from a Maspeth History book that I own and the original photo is much clearer than the scan. – Christina of Forgotten-NY.com
