The Cecilwood Theatre was on Main Street in Fishkill, New York (not Newburgh). They were a summer stock playhouse and I have not found evidence that they showed movies.

Yes, the Cecilwood was across the Hudson in Fishkill, which was then primarily a summer vacation area. I believe that the “No Time For Sergeants” booking of July, 1958 mentioned in the introduction was actually the original stage version and not the movie. At the same time, the rival Woodstock Playhouse was presenting the stage version of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” These productions had an advantage over the movies because they offered the original, uncensored text.
