Previously operated by: Small-Strausberg Circuit
Previous Names: Horak's Opera House
Horak’s Opera House was converted into the Arcade Theatre by 1914. It was one of Astoria’s earliest cinemas, and the nearest competition to the somewhat older Steinway Theatre. The Arcade Theatre also had an airdome that operated in spring/summer and was either adjacent to the 575-seat theatre or on the roof. Neither facility survived past the silent era. The premises were taken over for retail re-development. More information about the Arcade Theatre’s history, as well as an exact contemporary address for the site, are needed.
The Arcade Theatre’s original address was 325 Steinway Avenue (the Steinway Theatre, originally 345 Steinway Avenue, is now 31-08 Steinway Street for the building’s conversion to retail).
