Located in the sleepy town of Red Hook, the original Lyceum Theatre is now called the Lyceum Annex. The original auditorium space is now an antique store. There’s an addition to the building in which the current auditorium resides. Just outside of town is also the Lyceum 6-screen theatre.

Is the addition open as a theatre?

Yes, the addition currently is a theater. The original autitorium is a bit peculiar- it is a converted 19th C. church. If you look up at the ceiling you see draperies than cover what ever ornaments or trusses were up there, as well as improving the acoustics. Never was a fancy theater but the building has a certain quirky charm.

I remember seeing films at the Lyceum back in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s when I worked at a nearby camp during the summer. I also went to similar theaters- The Starr in Rhinebeck, a few miles to the south of Red Hook and the Plains in Pine Plains, probably about 15 miles to the east of Red Hook on the other side of the Taconic Parkway. At that time all of these were quiet little towns.
I haven’t been in the region in many years but I understand that they have become virtual suburbs of NYC.

This is mapping to the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, as opposed to the upstate NY town of Red Hook. Google lists Lyceum Six Cinemas at 15 Old Farm Road, Red Hook, NY 12571. Fandango has a different address of 7270 South Broadway. Old Farm Road is right off of South Broadway (which is Rt 9) and google maps seem to show that the parking lot is accessed off Old Farm Road and that the theater doesn’t actually front onto South Broadway at all. It may be that the South Broadway address is used because it is easier for folks to locate, being the main road in the area.

In any event… this is very much an OPEN cinema with a current slate of flicks that includes “Green Lantern,” “Super 8” and “Mr Popper’s Penguins.” Judging from movie times, looks like there are at least seven screens in operation at the moment.

Oh wait… reading the post from lopez on June 11, the theater I’ve described above is a completely DIFFERENT cinema from the theater this page is intended to discuss. My apologies. Looks like no one has added the Lyceum Cinemas to CT as yet.

OK, so the Lyceum Annex is listed on Fandango – but with no current showtimes – at an address of 139 South Broadway, Red Hook, NY 12571. At the very least, this should map the Google view to the correct vicinity of the theater.

I was there last week, and the Annex antique shop is moving out. The people working there didn’t know what will happen to the theatre building. It is pretty much still intact inside. Even the screen is still there, balcony and everything. I took lots of pictures, I’ll post them soon.
