Park East Theatre

This elegant Nassau County theatre was opened on June 28, 1966 with Julie Andrews in “Mary Poppins”. It was part of a shopping center and was in the style of the Fresh Meadows Theater.

Most likely, the new multiplexes killed off this theatre, which closed relatively young in 1986. It now houses a restaurant.

I reorganized my photobucket album and broke the photo links I posted above in December. Here’s the new link to the photos for anyone interested.

I never could figure why they called it the Park East. Initially, I thought they were going to retain the Park, but didn’t. It closed simultaneously with the opening of the Park East. This naming has caused confusion in the postings on both theatres.

Seats from this theatre found additional life in the Bellmore Movies.

TKM: Someone asked about Century’s Park Theatre (not this new Park East), but I can’t even find it in the database.
