Another of the many theatres that were once in Massapequa. This one seems to have closed in the late-1970’s.

The North Massapequa Theatre was located in a shopping below a Fred Astaire Dance Studio. It was run by A.I.T., which ran identical looking theatres all over Long Island. A.I.T. Theatres: Amity, Bar Harbour, Deer Park, Larkfield, Ronkonkama, and Kings Park.

I grew up in N. Mass. so I went to this place countless times.

Saw THE GODFATHER here, 2001, and even COTTON COMES TO HARLEM.

Spent half my youth in this joint, along with the Bethpage, Mid-Island, Levittown, Wantagh, etc.

Now converted into a car dealership?

It wasn’t a big theatre but it was at the corner of the shopping center. If it was converted to a dealership they would have had to taken over stores. I rarely get to that area but will file this in my memory bank to check it out.

This theatre was located in an L shaped shopping center on Jerusalem Avenue at the intersection of Hickville Road (the northwest corner). The theatre and the adjacent stores on the stretch of the shopping center running parallel to Jerusalem Avenue are now incorporated in a large Marshalls.

I went back to the site today, in the daylight, to reaffirm my original May 1st comment that it was at the corner of the shopping center. It was; the eastern corner. However, subsequently, a cinder block addition as been added obliterating all but the exit door, by the screen, of the original exterior.

I have vivid memories of this theater form the late 60’s/early 70’s. Saw Yellow Submarine and Tales from the Crypt there. It was close enough to where I lived to ride my bike. The Pequa becamse the spot to go as I got older. I seem to remember it was an old fashioned type theater with a stage and everything. I also vaguely remember door prizes… There was a Grant’s store right next to it, to the left as you looked at it and I think a dance studio to the right as another poster said. It is a Marshalls now.
