The Lefferts Theatre was opened prior to 1926 when it was operated by the Meyer & Schneider circuit. For many years this was a first run United Artists house. In the 1970’s it became an independent showing first run movies with a second feature. To say the owner ran it into the ground is an understatement. In the winter it would be freezing, they would turn the heat on just as they opened the doors so customers would hear the radiators clanking and then turn it off again.
It was like walking into a 42nd Street theatre and very often played grind double bills direct from there. After a fire it was triplexed but only limped a long for a few years before being sold and turned into a Genovese and other retail stores.
