The site has not been updated since last spring. I took a ride up there early this summer and met with the owner. The building is in decent shape, and the current owner, a local realtor, wants to further restore the theatre. At the time he was planning a summer slate of art and children’s product, but I have not noticed any advertising all summer for the Hippodrome.

I found it on a website of a certain movie “Rock School” that my friend starred in. It played there this past July.

This theater was part of the Kallet Theaters chain in the early 1960s.

The cinema has been closed since 2006 sadly.The owners spent $300,000 dollars fixing up this gem. Independent films and films aimed at the Hasidic community did not fly.Here is hoping someone will re-open this fine cinema.

Apparently it did reopen for awhile for the summer seasons recently, but will apparently not be doing so again: View link
