Post Theater

The Post Theater is located in Fort Hancock, near Sandy Hook, NJ. The theater was built in 1933 to entertain the troops stationed there. After the fort was decommissioned in 1974, the National Park Service took over the fort. A volunteer group, the Sandy Hook Foundation, reopened the fort’s movie theater in 2000 as a community arts center.

This posting took me to the fact that there are MANY theaters on current and former military bases around the country.Some are simple wooden stuctures that look like they were built from left over parts or materials from the “temporary"WWII barracks.Take little Ft Pickett,Va.It has two theaters,one dating from WWII,one built in the 50’s or 60’s that still shows movies.Ft Douglas,Ut has a nice old brick theater that I think was built in the 30’s.I could go on and on.Sadly many really nice theaters have been destroyed.A beautiful stone one at Camp Blanding,Fla.comes to mind.We could start a whole new site,just for military theaters.Ft.Lee ,VA uses theirs as a very active community theater site.
