News About This Theater
The Astoria Theatre opened in the Astoria section of Queens in November 1920, as a vaudeville house for the Glynne & Ward circuit, but acquired by Loew’s Inc. on January 8, 1923. It was equipped with an Austin 2 manual 22 ranks organ.
After many years operated by the Skouras Theaters Corp. chain. On March 18 1977, United Artists divided the theatre into four screens, and then, on March 28, 1986, converted the remaining dressing areas in the back of the building into two additional theatres, bringing the theatre up to sixplex status.
It was named the UA Astoria Sixplex when it closed on December 26, 2001.
Today, the former theatre building is used for office space and retail.
