Oyster Bay Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Oyster Bay Theatre was built on the site of the Oyster Bay Opera House, which burnt in 1934, and its successor the Lyric Theatre, which also burnt down.

The new Lyric Theatre was subsequently renamed the Oyster Bay Theatre toward the end of its life, and after being an independent for many years became part of the AIT chain. After its closure it became part of the Oyster Bay Town Hall.

The photo of the Lyric Theater was also known as the Oyster Bay Theater, not the Pine Hollow Theater where BMW of Oyster Bay is now. The building in the photo of the Lyric Theater/Oyster Bay Theater currently is an annex to the Oyster Bay Town Hall.

I remember the Oyster Bay Theatre where I paid 25 cents to see House on the Haunted Hill, and, I rember very well the Pine Hollow Theatre where I was employed beginning August of 1966, my first job. I worked on the very first reserved seat engagement of “The Blue Max” starring George Peppard and Ursla Andress. I became the manager of the Pine Hollow when I was 17 years old. I have very fond memories and I have photos, although I don’t know where to put my hands on them at the moment. The Pine Hollow Theatre was in the same building that is now the BMW dealership. Many of Oyster Bay’s alumini worked along side of me at that theatre and we had lots of good times. It is sad that the town nolonger has a movie theatre. I ran across this site today by accident while I was searching for a 1966 graduate of Saint Dominic’s who used to be a good friend of mine and who also worked with me at the Pine Hollow. This was a pleasant surprise on a dreary day.
Thanksforthememories.

I was 7 or 8 and I still remember going to the Pine Hollow Theatre and seeing Grease; Xanadu; Grizzly Adams and a bunch of others. Then we would get ice cream at Carvel. And what about the Pine Hollow Skating rink, what fun! Thanks for the memories!

The proof that the Lyric was laterly known as the Oyster Bay is on the Deer Park Theatre site where someone has linked an ad for the opening of the Deer Park. In the next column is the Oyster Bay (on Audrey Avenue).
