See the revival of the St. George on this week’s PBS Treasures of New York. Tonight, 10/19 on Channel 21.

As I understand it the premise of Cinema Treasures is that the main listing be under the last name of the theatre, in which case it would be Loew’s. All other IDs would be under prior names. However, we all know that isn’t always the case which can cause duplicates.

I had heard that Walmart and some other big box store had been interested.

The decay continues (see new photos) and the owner doesn’t respond favorably to offers made. No one can figure what he wants. Shortly the whole pylon will be overgrown and the blight will no longer be visible.

It would take a year to redo the theater in the image which appears in the photo section. There would be no point in redoing the inside until the integrity of the exterior is achieved.

Well the pylon says see you in 2017 – that’s gonna be tough.

According to the Regal website the Lynbrook 13 and RPX will open in 2018. Originally the opening was to be this year.

And in later years Century had comprehensive movie guides for all of its theaters. There was one for northern Queens which showed activity at the Sunnyside, Bliss and 43rd Street, a Brooklyn guide and one which covered the Huntington theaters, the eastern Queens theaters and all the Nassau ones.

After the Meadows and Shore opened these guides were discontinued.

Pod storage container in the parking lot. No other visuals.

Anytime you have to rely on the news media you have “alternate truths”. I actually have seen the article describing the construction of the Capitol in 1925 referred to in the opening. Ken Roe’s photo of the Babylon is 1925.

The truth, however, is that this theater, along with 2/3rds of the others no longer exist. And, quite frankly, I wonder as time goes on how many of the millenials and beyond will even care.

Kyle, since this is a theater oriented site and there has been little information posted on it I doubt if you’ll get any responses. I think the three pix on this site in the photo section is about all you’re going to get.

According to the February 26, 1916 The Motion Picture World the property was being leased by a William Schwab.

Interesting but it was only about a Constance Bannister baby caption contest rather than anything about actual movie goings on. Didn’t realize they had run such a contest since I always lived in Century Theaters territory.

The Empire moved a bit west of it’s original location but not as far as the AMCO.

Katie, how did Nana happen to get this?

Wally, would you happen to have any of those flyers around. I saw a reproduction of one in a Southold newspaper. I seem to recall, in the one edition, in the lower right hand corner near the Edwards, a listing for a Moriches (not Center Moriches) theater. I have not been able to prove this and there is no listing on CT. Would also be interesting to see one where the Granada in Patchogue appeared.

Early Newsday ads show the Hewlett as being operated by Town and Country Theaters along with the Wantagh, Glen Cove and Town (Glen Cove).
