Sal “The Voice” Valentinetti’s EP Debuted # 1 on ITUNES Top Jazz Albums Chart. Sal first learned the American standards at his grandmother’s knee and his passion grew further when he discovered his hidden vocal talent in his teenage years. “Sal the Voice,” as he is known by everyone form Brooklyn to Bayshore, can be found on most Sundays sipping cappuccino at the cafe, telling stories, making jokes and planning his next move— to bring back to American pop culture the consummate, classy, old-school entertainer with a heart of gold. When his grandmother passed away, her music was all Sal had to remember her by. He had previously tried out for season 14 of American Idol, where he successfully made it past the auditions but did not proceed to the live shows. On season 11 of America’s Got Talent Sal wowed the judges and won Heidi Klum’s golden buzzer. He then made it past the Semi-Finals and competed in the Final Show. Sal breathes fresh air into the classics; “The Way You Look Tonight”, “My Way”, “Summer Wind”, “The Girl From Impana”, “Mack The Knife”, “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing”. Check out Sal’s hot debut CD and his classic Christmas CD. Sal will entertain you like you have never been entertained before. Advance Tickets on sale now.

DJMitchell commented about Marine Theatre on Aug 9, 2005 at 6:41 pm

Century’s Marine Theatre was a great place to see a movie. I have great memories of the Theatre from the 60s and 70s. I remember seeing THE SOUND OF MUSIC, DISNEY’s THE JUNGLE BOOK, HOUSE OF WAX in 3D, KLUTE, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID, THE FRENCH CONNECTION,
TOM THUMB, and so many others! The theatre is now a bank and a carpet store. Its very sad.

I have so many wonderful memories of the Sunrise Drive In Theatre from the 1960s and early 1970s. I used to go there with my dad, mom, brother and friends. Children under 12 got in free. Their was a playground under the screen, a huge fast food stand (that sold Burgers, Franks, chicken, french fries—long before there was McDonalds or Burger King in our area.)The popcorn was great! Their was a baby REAL CLOTH diapper service (no such thing as pampers!)and they also sold baby bottles of regular milk! I remember the projectionist used to make annoucements! They gave out placemat flyers with all the neighborhood information on it(like you would get in a dinner!!!). Amoung the milestone features I saw there were, MCHALES NAVY JOINS THE AIRFORCE, MUNSTER GO HOME, HURRY SUNDOWN, MRS BROWN YOU;VE GOT A LOVELY DAUGHTER (HERMANS HERMITS), TICK TICK TICK, HARPER, PROMISE HER ANYTHING (warren beatty), THE SILCENCERS, THE WRECKING CREW, THE AMBUSHERS (ALL DEAN MARTIN). It was an experience to watch a movie in your car. Bring back the Sunrise Drive In!!!

DJMitchell commented about Graham Cinema on Jun 3, 2004 at 10:41 pm

The Graham was a great movie theatre. It was like going to an event. On Saturday afternoon it was packed. They would show a Children’s full length film, an Abbott & Costello movie, 5 to 10 cartoons, a Three Stooges short and then they would let you stay for the main movie (all for 50 or 75 cents). Later in its history, they used show The Rocky Horror Picture Show every Staurday at Midnight and it was a full house. Every one was throwing rice and toilet paper and running down the aisles. What memories!!!
