Ground was broken for the original Babylon Theatre on January 24, 1913. The 32 x 100 terra cotta, tin roofed structure was built for Graham M. Polley on Deer Park Avenue, at George Street, by contractor E.W. Howell. (Howell’s company went on to become a prime Long Island builder.) The theatre opened on April 15, 1913.
Nathan I. Goldstein, who operated the Unique Theatre and Star Theatre in Patchogue, acquired the Babylon Theatre in August 1918 retaining Polley as manager.
William D. Eccleston acquired the theatre in May, 1919. His other theatres were in Sayville, Lindenhurst, Hicksville, Central Islip, Westbury and Smithtown.
Eccleston closed the Babylon Theatre in July 1922 complaining that Babylon hadn’t supported him.
