Honey Waldman, who with her husband renovated this theater and opened it as the Tappan Zee Playhouse in 1958, died December 8 in Manhattan. She was 87. New York Times obituary here.

Here is part of a news article from February 2004 that discusses the demolition plans:

Thanks. I remember ‘that’ one now. Being north of Main St., it didn’t draw as much attention. Do you know how large it was and when it actually came down? I do know it had an 8 rank wurlitzer installed, so it must have been over 800-1000 seats?

The Rockland Theatre was an entirely different theatre. It was located at 36 North Broadway and has long since been demolished.

Roger, Thanks for filling in some of the blanks. I knew of this theater just before it closed, but never did visit it. When you live in the area, some things just don’t seem important.
Did this theater also go under the name “Rockland Theater”?
