Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

The first Northport Theatre was built around 1912. Entertainment consisted of vaudeville and motion pictures. The Northport Theatre was listed in the 1930 edition of Film Daily Yearbook with 500 seats. On April 19, 1932 this Northport Theatre was destroyed by fire. The owner at the time of the fire was Carl Walkowitz.

Instead of waiting for the remains of this building to be demolished, construction of the current Northport Theatre (John W. Engeman Theater) began immediately on an adjacent lot at 250 Main Street.
