This large theatre was located on 31st Street off Ditmars Boulevard in the Astoria section of Queens. Opened in 1924, it has been closed since 1960, but the building still stands. It was gutted internally and became a Key Food supermarket on the street level and a gymnasium upstairs. The building was vacated in October 2020 and it was demolished in spring of 2021.
From the street there was no hint this was a theatre, but behind the building is a municipal parking lot and from this view you can clearly tell the building’s past life.
This street had another theatre as well. Up the block and across the street (on 31st Street) was a very small neighborhood movie house that survived into the 1970’s – ending its run playing Greek language films.
