News About This Theater
Opened by 1929 as the Hicksville Theatre when it was operated by Playhouse Operating Co. By 1950, it had been renamed Playhouse. Great neighborhood theater near the Hicksville train station. Not sure exactly when this stopped showing first run films but I know I saw “Aladdin” there in January 1993. Became a Bollywood theater in the late-1990’s for a few years before closing completely around 2000.
Last time I drove by it looked like the building had been converted to retail. The theater had a lot of history surrounding it. I believe “A Hard Day’s Night” played there in 1964 and the ensuing pandemonium made the newspapers.
The building is now in use as a church.
