One more thought about the Larkfield; I NEVER recall standing on a line to get in. Ever. I think because all they showed was second runs.

Bloop — could you post some of your Larkfield ads in the photos section? I really enjoyed seeing them.

And has the Bakers' daughter contacted you? I was very fond of her parents and I’d love to share some memories with her.

I will look for them and post them. Never heard from Baker’s granddaughter after the old posts on here….

I added a new photo of Larkfield circa 1976. It was taken from an old East Northport Junior High School yearbook. Sorry for the poor quality , but you can see the sign (which had red neon).

I probably put those titles up on that marquee, since I worked there in 1976.

Thanks for the photo.

I lived in East Northport on Clay Pitts Road from age 10 in 1957 until 1971. I saw alot of movies at the Larkfield Theater, I’m sure some were first run. On Saturday afternoons in the late 50’s-early 60’s: The 7th Voyage of Sinbad; House on Haunted Hill; The Vikings; Dr No, Goldfinger. Evening shows: Sparticus; Planet of the Apes, The Time Machine and many many more.

Still no word from the granddaughter of Sarah Baker (who ran this theater) ? I added the Dumbo / Silent Running ad. I was actually at the Dumbo/ Lobo kiddie matinee in this very ad!

Added two photo’s of the Larkfield Theatre shot in 1976. I was a student at NPHS at the time. These pic’s were taken for either “The Rag” or the yearbook .. I cannot recall which.

Hi Everyone I just saw these comments – haven’t been to this site in a while, but it always makes me smile to see how people remember my grandparents (Stuart and Sarah Baker) and their theaters and how much other people cared about something they both loved to do very much. My mom (their daughter Denise Baker), said shes trying to go through my grandmother stuff now and would be happy to share anything she finds but shes not sure how much, if anything valuable from the theater survived the move (my grandmother moved from East Northport to NJ 6 or 7 years after my grandfather passed away to be closer to us, by which time the theater had already been converted to a church according to my mom). I know my grandma’s best friend Ginny still lives right there, we used to visit her quite often – and she definitely has some stuff she kept stored in her basement as momentos. Shes in her 90’s so its hard to get in touch with her by phone, and i’m abroad now – but i’ll definitely give it a try to reach her and at least ask. Perhaps her son can send me some pictures at least. Lastly, Mike – do you remember my mom from when you worked at the theater? She said she would love to hear from people who worked there or have good memories to share about the theater or my grandparents. Please be in touch with me privately and i will happily make the direct connection. All the Best!
