An older movie theatre was originally on this site, which was destroyed by a hurricane in 1938. The Greenport Theatre was built and opened in 1939.

Currently the theater has four screens, and is located in the heart of town at Front Street and Third Street.

The Greenport actually closed up shop for the season just after Labor Day. Given the number of September events scheduled in Greenport, I am surprised that the theater closed so soon. Still, the Greenport did very fine business this summer. Look forward to a great 2010!

I’m surprised they closed early too. At least they have the Cafe rented again. Too bad they won’t upgrade the sound in the theaters there.

Was in Greenport on a bike trip, Saturday evening into Sunday morning. Cool place. Nice facade, strains your neck to get a full shot with marquee since it’s a narrow street. The MetroEast Cafe is open too. Nice place.

The old place has appeared to be having another good season this year. The cafe is really an asset.

The vertical is dramatic, the “V” signage is pathetic. Before they redid the place the signage was flat, long and narrow across the front of the building. The name was spelled out in single, white incandescent lights, also pathetic.

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.
