Located in the Corona section of Queens, the Hyperion Theatre first opened in December, 1910, and offered vaudeville, films, and amateur nights for prices ranging from five to fifteen cents, according to a report in The Newtown Register, a newspaper that covered North Queens.
By 1924, the Hyperion Theatre had become part of the Small & Strausberg Circuit and showed movies only. The building of larger and better theatres in the area like Loew’s Plaza Theatre and the S & S Corona Theatre and Granada Theatre spelled the Hyperion Theatre’s doom.
After developing a reputation as the local “itch”, it was demolished and replaced by a branch of the U.S. Post Office.
