The Harbor Theatre was opened on August 19, 1935 and was part of the Interboro chain. But when the chain was sold to Loew’s, this theatre closed on June 26, 1979 with Sally Field in “Norma Rae”. It was converted into the Harbor Racquetball Club with the locker rooms replacing the balcony and the courts on the orchestra level.
It later closed again and was turned into a fur showroom. This business didn’t last long, and it closed again, later to be converted into a gym (without the racquetball courts).
The Harbor Theatre sign adorned the side wall for years and still might be partially there as you approach the building from 96th Street.
