Screening Room

Built in 1905 as a Grange Hall, it has been showing movies in an upstairs room since approximately 1915. The 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory shows an Opera House operating in Millerton. By 1927 it was known as the Millerton Theatre which had 360 seats. By 1950 the Millerton Theatre was operated by Liggett-Florin Booking Service.

In recent years in has been converted into a four screen movie theatre and renamed The Moviehouse. There is an art gallery in the café. The building is listed on the National Directory of Historic Places.

Saw this theater while passing by on a bike trip last week. The info on this theater was provided on a historical market in nearby Wassaic.

“Main Street Millerton…the building with the clocktower is Benedict Hall, which was built in 1903. The upstairs was used for dances, roller skating and basketball games. The Grange met here until 1935. Myron Puff opened his drugstore downstairs and a movie theater upstairs…”
