Previous Names: Flushing Theatre, Taft Theatre
The Flushing Theatre Theatre was one of the first movie theatres in downtown Flushing, Queens, and dated back to 1917. On December 31, 1931 it was renamed Taft Theatre. In 1938 it was renamed the Town Theatre. It was operated by the Century Theaters circuit, and then by the Springer chain in its final years.
Changing programs twice a week, the Town Theatre played the same double bills as its nearby competition, the RKO Keith’s Theatre and the Prospect Theatre, but several weeks afterwards. It was closed in 1955 and was demolished to make way for a W.T. Grant variety store, which in turn has since been demolished.
