I have looked for any images of the interior of the theater and have come up empty so far (at least online). I do recall reading about the seats being removed. The public was invited to come in, and if they wanted to take the time to unbolt a chair from the cement floor, the chair was theirs for the taking-- as a kind of memento or keepsake. I didnt realize that the old seats had never been replaced.
I know parking is tough in LI, but a venue like the theatre, restored and showing avant garde films, foreign fare, or more art films would draw crowds from the neighborhood, the nearby college crowd, etc. What good is it doing just sitting there like that? And for all these years?
I know the last time i was in town and walked thru LI, the Club Corbo building had a For Sale sign on it. Does anyone know if it still on the market?
