The Music Hall Theatre opened on April 19, 1962 with Peter Sellers in “Only Two Can Play”. For about twenty years, it rode the crest of the wave of foreign film popularity, often with long lines of patrons patiently waiting outside, in order to be eventually granted admission to whatever was the trendy British, French, or Italian film of the moment.
But all good things must come to an end, and by the mid-1980’s the Music Hall’s days as a film theater were over. Live shows were attempted and then it became a gay disco named Music Hall, but ultimately failed, as the neighborhood around it also deteriorated as well. It is now a church.
