Located in the Ridgewood section of Queens. The Oasis Theatre was opened on September 16, 1927 by Sol Brill. It was soon taken over by William Fox. It then became part of the Randforce Circuit, later a division of United Artists Theatre Circuit and eventually the Randforce name was changed to UA. The original capacity was for 1,750 seats. It changed from first run to second run double bills a few times that I remember. Many times the film from the Ridgewood Theatre would move here with a second feature.
The last film to play was “Rocky” in 1976, when it closed and became a roller rink for many years. It became a CVS in the former auditorium, with the front of the building demolished for a parking lot. By early-2013, CVS had moved out and the building was vacant. By 2014 it was in use as a second-hand store.
