The original Baldwin Theatre dates back to the early-20th century. It was listed in the 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory and opened December 24, 1915. Since it didn’t have a sloping floor it was used by the high school for a basketball court. Meetings and dances were also held there.
According to a November 19, 1926 article in the Baldwin Citizen the theatre was to be replaced by stores. The article indicated that the tiny theatre had only recently closed due poor attendance resulting from competion of a large neighboring theatre, presumably either in Rockville Centre or Freeport.
