Various newspaper articles, flyers and other evidence confirm the existence of the Point Theatre in Whitney Point. It was located on the second floor of the fire station. When I was a child doing research on movie theatres in the area, information on this theatre was and now remains frustratingly elusive…particularly since my father at that time owned the Whitney Point newspaper! Research at the time suggested the existence of prior theatres in Whitney Point…the village was devastated by flood in 1935, so this is not surprising.
Flyers on eBay dated mid-1930’s advertise for the Whitney Point Theatre which opened on April 21, 1934. Articles in the Binghamton Press confirm that the theatre, now known as the Point Theatre had opened on December 24, 1936. It closed in early-1961 and was demolished to build a new fire station on the site.
