On the corner of Remsen Street & White Street in downtown Cohoes, the Cohoes Theatre served the movie going public from its opening in 1942 through the early-1970’s.
Designed by noted theatre architect John Eberson, the building features brick ornamentation on its exterior, and a colorful, swirled mural ceiling in its auditorium. When I was last in the building about 20 years ago, the seats had been ripped out and sloped floor leveled with dirt, and there were used washers and dryers stored in there. The current owner also ripped out the exterior box office and the right-side set of entrance doors, and replaced them with windows. The dazzling neon marquee was removed shortly after the theater closed.
The derelict Cohoes Theatre was demolished in November 2010.
