Beacon Theatre

The 1,100-seat Beacon Theatre opened August 3, 1934 with Marion Davies in “Operator 13”. It was still operating in 1957. By 1919 the auditorium had been gutted and became 3-screens, seating 77, 23 & 30. Part of the auditorium has been converted into apartments.

Not really. This theater was demolished and replaced with condos. That new building has a small theater in it that is named after this one.

There are 3 screens seating 77/23/30. Here is an article about the theater, part of it has been re-purposed as condos. The theater building itself was not demolished.

Demolished or gutted, either way nothing remains of the original theater.
