Closed for the season Labor Day but opened two days in October for some sort of TV festival. I don’t know how this place survives on a season of less than 10 weeks.

The theater makes little if any. He loves the old theater. He collects theater memorabilia and has it displyed throughout.

When I used to summer on Shelter Island I would ferry over and go to the movies when it was it’s original self. Since I moved to Manorville I don’t “do” Shelter Island and although I get to Greenport several times a year I have not been in the theater since it was modified.

I which he’d retained the old signage, however.

I’ve been told that the owner shows a short film prior to the regular program paying homage to the theater which originally was on the site. Be nice to see it. Wonder if it’s on YouTube.

The theatre was a single screen until 1990, sometime in the early 1990’s it became a quad, the balcony was upstairs and three were on the main floor.
