Located in the Rego Park section of Queens. The Trylon Theater was opened in 1939 by United L.I. Theatres. It was named after the famous centerpice of the 1939 World’s Fair which was held in nearby Flushing. Seating was provided in orchestra and balcony levels. It was later taken over by Interboro Circuit Inc.
This once popular Art Deco style movie house closed on December 31, 1999 after its lease expired. It was purchased by the Bucharians, an orthodox Jewish group, for use as a cultural center. However, preservationists tried lobbying to retain the features of the building and obtain Landmark building status, but it stood empty for several years, until the new owners finally got their way and destroyed most of its historical features.
