Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Globe Theatre was built in 1935 by the Bertram Amusement Company and had an original seating capacity for 340. It was sold in 1943 and continued to run under various owners until the late-1980’s.

In 2006 this unique old theater was still standing, for sale and had a cut stone facade possibly of granite. The boarded up ticket booth and entrance were recessed into the front of the building. There were probably two movie poster frames on each side of the entrance along with one frame on each side of the front.

Above the entrance were three windows with broken panes and a metal frame that must have housed a sign.

In 2009, it was purchased by new owners who are currently restoring the theatre to its original Art Deco style.

After seeing photos like this I almost think I’d prefer the building demolished. I always feel for abandoned buildings but they seem to stand more of a chance for revalization than one of the thousands of shuttered theatres. The Patchogue Plaza is the most glaring Long Island example.

Good news… Went by today on Jan 30th, 2001 and it looks like restoration is still in progress. All new windows up top, and the beat up old Globe sign is hanging once again, but not restored. Looking much better…….

I screwed up the date once again. I am good at that. Yes, the photo was taken yesterday. Bertram isn’t too far from me, I’ll be checking back with more progress.

Hello! The theatre is currently owned by Zach Hamilton, Lance Regier, and his wife Jordan. They are restoring this treasure to be open in the near future. Please come by for a show later on! It is sure to be unforgetable.
