The Meriden Theatre opened in 1910 and was one of the first movie houses built in Astoria, Queens, which is just across the East River from Manhattan. In the 1920’s, the theatre was renovated and re-named the New Meriden Theatre and eventually the Square Theatre to denote its proximity to Astoria Square, which is at the junction of Newtown Avenue, Astoria Boulevard, and 21st Street.
Never more than a late-run nabe, the Square Theatre closed in the 1950’s and was soon converted into an auto repair garage. Some of the original decor is still visible in the interior.
