According to an article in the Westchester County Business Journal, the city of Beacon is eyeing the theater for adaptive reuse.

In 1930 the only theaters that I can find listed for Beacon, New York are the Capitol and the Paragon. The Beacon Theater is listed in 1935.

I saw the build date Chuck. I was wondering if this theater opened as the Beacon, or did it have a previous name. For example, the Capitol Theater is listed in 1930 and the Beacon isn’t. In 1935 it’s just the opposite. The Beacon is listed and the Capitol isn’t.
