Not likely Ed. A theater with a seating capacity well over a thousand in this time period, and on Long Island?

I also note in one of the ads posted by RidgewoodKen, the O'Conner-Radin Circuit operated the Arcade Theatre in Lynbrook, which later became the Studio 1. As for the Lyric Theatre in Rockville Centre, there is no listing on CT for such a place… yet. Unless, could this have been a previous name for the long extinct Strand Theatre?

There is no current address of 251 Hempstead Ave, but all signs seem to point to this building being located near the north east corner of N. Franklin and Front Streets. Currently, there is a parking lot for a shopping center, which includes a large Korean supermarket closest to the corner. I’ve adjusted the street view accordingly, pending more accurate information. The old view had us several blocks to the east.

Thanks for the back story. Love to know your sources. They might help me on a couple of other tracking projects.
