The Arena was one of the first cinemas built in Astoria, Queens, but did not survive the silent era. The small wooden building may have started out as a penny arcade and been expanded into a theatre. The seating capacity has been reported in various journals as low as 150 and as high as 470.
The Arena and its site vanished in the widening of Astoria Boulevard and the building of the Grand Central Parkway. More information about its history is needed.
