Uploaded a photo of the American when it was under construction at the turn of the 20th century as the Sigmond Opera House.

I was in the Freeport Library earlier this week and the research librarian showed me a picture from around the turn of the 20th century showing construction of the opera house. She said she would be adding it to the Long Island Memories Collection at

I just checked a few moments ago and it was up saying opera house first became American, burnt down 1923 – as all above. Will someone with some techie knowledge please do the advanced search at this site and provide a direct link to the image at this site. Thanks.

The American Motion Picture Directory 1914-1915 lists both the American Theatre and the Sigmond Opera House. Unfortunately, an exact street number is not given for either theatre. It could be that this was the period of time when the building was re-named, hence both being listed.
