From the 1940s a view of the Greenport Theatre on Long Island New York.

We were out in North Fork this weekend and rolled into Greenport later in the evening on Saturday for dinner. We saw the Greenport Theatre marquee and got excited but we were too late to make any 9pm screenings. Not put off, I ducked into the lobby and — wow! — the place looks great: a beautifully restored lobby with a stand-alone ticket booth, nice concessions, vintage signs, tasteful decorations, and an overall cheerful and successful atmosphere. I know this place is seasonal and I wonder how well it’s actually doing but it looks great and I really want to see a film here now.

Seasonal is the word. Come Labor Day they’ll close. Then they’ll reopen in mid June. They don’t make any attempt to extend the season. For Pete’s sake the Montauk has a much longer season and a much smaller potential clientele. Even Sag Harbor is now open year ‘round. This is a boon for the folks on Shelter Island. All they have to do is drive to the ferry slip on their side and walk a couple of blocks to the theatre when they get into Greenport.

This Post card is of the present Greenpor Movie Theater. Prior to this building there was another Movie Theater on this location. I believe it was called Glynns Theater. That was destroyed by the 1938 Hurricane. The Opera House was located at the corner of Bay Avenue and Main Street. and was not destroyed by the 1938 Hurrinace.
