News About This Theater
- Mar 28, 2008 — Polk Theatre razed
I don’t know anything about this theater’s history, but it was located on the north side of 37th Avenue just west of Junction Boulevard on the Corona/Jackson Heights border in Queens. By 1941 the Polk Avenue Theatre was operated by the Island Theater Circuit.
It operated until its closure as an adult theater and had been so for as long as I can remember (more than 25 years), but I presume it was once a small neighborhood house that looks to date from the 1930’s or 1940’s. The name of the theater was displayed in large red-neon block letters on either side of the marquee.
The Polk Theater was closed in February 2006 and was demolished in February 2008.
