In 1941 the St. Albans Theatre was operated by United L.I. Theatres. It was later taken over by Interboro Cirucuit Inc. This theatre, which now operates as a church, has been listed as existing at 190-01 Central Avenue in Film Daily Year Books. I came upon it because the pastor of the now former Linden Theatre nearby directed me to it. I thought I wouldn’t find it but low and behold on the corner of 19-01 Linden Boulevard, the St. Albans Theatre still survives.
The building hasn’t been a theatre in over 55 years, yet the vertical sign is still on the building! The vertical, however small, covers the second story of the building. Church services in progress prevented me from viewing the interior. The marquee and box-office were removed some time ago.
The building sat 870 people according to records. This was one of many that passed on due to television.
