The Eastmont is at present in use as a pharmacy.

My aunt took me there as a kid once. All I remember was that it had a big lobby and the palm trees on the walls inside. It was changed into a Vic Tanny studio, and before it did, the marquee letters said “closing to get fit”. The draperies that closed over the screen were pretty, it was a beautiful purple velvet with gold circles on the bottom trim. We were told to stay away from the theater as kids because of the “riff raff” that went there.

In the middle 1940’s I lived on 73rd Ave. just below E14th St. The only other Theater close by was the Granada. Occasionally, my parents would take me up to the Elmhurst District and we would go to the Eastmont. I also remember the Chevy Plant at what is now the Eastmont Mall. Things can certainly change in ones lifetime.
