Another activity involving a restored 1920's "movie palace". This one was the 1929 St. George Theater in Staten Island, which is a short walk up the hill from the ferry terminal. It is in a Spanish Baroque and fortunately in remarkably good shape. It was reopened in 2005 as a performing arts center.
The theater has a house organist and a functional organ, reminiscent of most movie palaces of the 1920's and 30's that had a live organist.
I was there Saturday nite for a performance given by Frank Sinatra Jr. I took my mother who loved it; my girlfriend dozed off.
