The Leona (Stall) Theatre organ console is now located at SUNY (State University of New York) campus. Console orgionally rebuilt by R. Markworth when installed in his home in late 1970. Now refitted with SAMs and new keyboards.

On 12/28/77 The Leona was to be the first venue in the USA to welcome the Sex Pistols on their first, and last, US tour.

the Elite was on 9th ave, and Stahl was the original name of the leona theater…

We believe that there are two possibilities, The Stahl and The Elite. These theatres were connected to each other. They shared one ticket office and then one went to the right and one went to the left.

Does anybody know a theatre that used to be located further down from the Leona at 406 E 8th Avenue? My dad told me his dad remembered a theatre that used to be there that would show silent movies.

If you look closely at the picture I had posted earlier the marquee is for a concert by Journey. I’m guessing it was taken in the late 70s.

The Leona Theater had to have been open after 1966. I have a video clip my father and his friends made when they were in high school, and they were riding past the theater and the movie advertised was called The Night Of The Generals which came out in 1967. (I know I’m being nit-picky!):)

Hi, I’m new to the group, what a great site!
I’ve been searching for photos of the Leona for years, does anyone have any other shots or perhaps a copy of the short film, Leona: Portrait of a Picture Palace?

I think a Crossroads Mimi Mart is in that location now.

I read the same thing about the mini mall. I just can’t seem to imagine that in that location.
