Park East Theater

This elegant Nassau County theater was built in the 1960’s and stood on Jericho Turnpike. It was part of a shopping center and was in the style of the Fresh Meadows Theater.

Most likely, the new multiplexes killed off this theater, which closed relatively young in the early-1980’s. It now houses a restaurant.

Yes, It was first Ponderosa Steak house and then there was a German sausage place like Wiener Schnitzel, but not that chain..

I never could figure why they called it the Park East. Initially, I thought they were going to retain the Park, but didn’t. It closed simultaneously with the opening of the Park East. This naming has caused confusion in the postings on both theatres.

Seats from this theatre found additional life in the Bellmore Movies.

TKM: Someone asked about Century’s Park Theatre (not this new Park East), but I can’t even find it in the database.
