Located on Main Avenue in Passaic, the New Montauk Theatre opened on January 30, 1924 with Mary Pickford in “Rosita”. There was a full orchestra, and George Emmans from Washington DC was at the console of the $50,000 organ. It was operated by the Fabian Theatres chain.
Later operated by Warner Theatres and Stanley-Warner. It had a great Art Deco style marquee. Independently operated in its final years as an adult theater, the Montauk Theatre was closed in May 2005.
This once proud theatre was in good condition, but sat empty and unused for several years awaiting its fate. Taken over by the city of Passaic, the theatre along with several other buildings on the block were demolished in May 2011, and a new school is proposed for the site.
