In May of 1969 the Laurel had the exclusive Nassau County showing of Catherine Deneuve in “Belle de Jour”. This was an unusual area to play an exclusive like this. Maybe this was a subsequent release.

In the late 50’s this was a Rugoff house.

In the early seventies my father and uncle bought this theater and the Lido. I worked there and you can find my entry under the Lido’s comments. The Laurel Theater got a mention in Billy Crystal’s show on Broadway. He had his high school graduation there as well as many a date.

Sorry, Warren, “Fear Strikes Out” was a black-and-white VistaVision movie, filmed in 1.85/1 aspect ratio.
