I last went to the Cove Theatre in the early-1970’s. I don’t remember much about it except that it was a good sized theatre possibly decorated in the French style. It was opened August 12, 1927 and harbored a Midmer-Losh organ. It was taken over by Skouras Theatres in 1931. It was renovated in March 1949. It was later transformed into a dinner theatre, but Glen Cove, NY is off the beaten path on the North Shore of Long Island and the draw was not all that good. It closed and was demolished.
I remember that the stage house with the stage exposed to the elements was the last to go and stood sadly in downtown Glen Cove for some time before being pulverized. It was replaced by some sort of condos or assisted living complex now.
