Alhambra Hall

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Alhambra Hall was an early center of community activities showing movies in the early-1900’s in addition to live performances, dances, etc.. Movies ceased to be shown there when it was sold to the Odd Fellows in February, 1914 for a reported $13,300.

The building is currently used for retail.

From the South Side Signal (Babylon) 10/17/1913: “Captain Harrison L'Hommedieu, proprietor of the Alhambra, is planning to transform the hall into an uptodate theatre. He proposes to remove the second floor, and add large windows on the side, raise the floor of the first story on an incline, put in a good-sized stage, and otherwise make it an ideal playhouse. This will mean the losing to Babylon of its only large public dance hall, though it will make a more modern auditorium for other public gatherings. The cost of the proposed change will be well above $6,000.”

Well, that didn’t happen and he sold the building, excluding the motion picture equipment to the Odd Fellows.
