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.

The Cecilwood was a “strawhat” summer legit theatre that sometimes showed movies but not regularly enough to qualify as a cinema. But it was located near Beacon, which is across the Hudson River from Newburgh, and in a different county. If listed at all at CT, the Cecilwood should be under Beacon, not Newburgh.
