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.

Closed for the season Labor Day but opened two days in October for some sort of TV festival. I don’t know how this place survives on a season of less than 10 weeks.

The theater makes little if any. He loves the old theater. He collects theater memorabilia and has it displyed throughout.

When I used to summer on Shelter Island I would ferry over and go to the movies when it was it’s original self. Since I moved to Manorville I don’t “do” Shelter Island and although I get to Greenport several times a year I have not been in the theater since it was modified.

I which he’d retained the old signage, however.
