The Janice was reportedly the first theatre built in Flushing, and occupied the ground site of an old mansion known as Fountain House. It opened on November 24, 1914, and closed early in the sound era. Around 1925, the Janice was “modernized”, with the installation of a new screen, projection equipment, marquee, and a $15,000 Wurlitzer organ. The latter was played by Charles Rogers, who’d previously been organist at the Strand Theatre in NYC.
More information about the Janice Theatre’s history, including a contemporary address of the site, is needed. I believe that it was on the east side of Main Street, one block or possibly two south of Northern Boulevard.
