KFC was better in the 1970’s. I remember their stores were also few and far between…I remememer Northport (my friend’s sister was a manager), Massapequa (one of my friends worked there) and Deer Park? Today, KFC’s main problem is that, underneath the crispy coating, there is a slimey/watery under-coating that makes the entire skin slide off with the first bite. Truly disgusting. KFC also has the worst/ most careless employees, and sometimes the customers can look like a casting call for a John Waters movie…….

Check out the Loyola Theater (Westchester, CA) page for a You Tube TV ad posted recently. The Colonel makes a live appearance. You can also see the theater, which was the point of the addition.

I saw part of the film “All That Jazz” there in 1979 (I walked out because I thought it was so bad). And of course, I first saw “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” there at the midnight showing in 1980.

I was never inside this theatre but found the signage unique. Am I not correct in remembering this and the Deer Park as having the only yellow signs of all the Long Island theatres?

Contrary to the demolished, it is my contention that the building is still standing and is now a Chase bank.

Added front and rear photos of the theater as the Chase Bank.

From Route 111 you can see a mushroom ventilation unit. Was not the theater air conditioned from the beginning? Unfortunately the unit cannot be seen from ground level, only the significantly higher Route 111. Hence, no photo.

robboehm, It was air conditioned. I worked there during Rocky, Rollercoaster, and dozens of other movies. I used to pick up the films in Ft. Lee NJ for each feature change. I also worked at Mayfair in Commack. I can tell you that theatre was party city after hours for the employees. We used to lock the doors, roll em up, drink em down, and hang till 2:00 am. It was usher and candy girl heaven.

The owners were from Dix Hills. they liked private porn screenings, so we knew to stay away if their cars were outside.
