Opened on June 24, 1960 with Johanna von Koczion in Aren’t We Wonderful". This strip mall theatre never quite found it’s niche. It was originally opened as a first run house by Town and Country Theatres. Later taken over by Fox Eastern Theatres and a few years later was sublet to the same independent owner who had the Polk Theatre in Queens. He originally planned to run XXX, but the upscale neighborhood would never allow it. He played second run films until his lease expired.
RKO Century then re-opened it as a discount house. It then spent the last two years of its life day and dating with the strongest first run feature from the RKO Century Green Acres. It was closed on June 27, 1991 with Susan Sarandon in “Thelma & Louise”.
