This was the first Novelty Theatre to open in Sayville, NY. It was operated by Mr. Kost, and opened August 26, 1911. It was listed in the 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory. The Novelty Theatre had 400 seats, and there was an adjacent airdome which could seat 700. Admission was 10 Cents with an additional charge of 5 Cents on ‘feature’ nights.
In August 1918, the Novelty Theatre and its airdome were destroyed by a fire which had started in an adjoining laundry building to the south of the theatre.
A second Novelty Theatre was built and opened in 1919, which was later re-named Sayville Theatre. This operated until spring of 1951, when it was demolished and a new Sayville Theatre was built and opened on adjacent land (each of these have their own pages on Cinema Treasures).
