The St. George Theater, Staten Island


This is a great place, and it is within walking distance of the ferry. I went to movies here as a kid, and it is great to go to it again and see it in good shape! It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the inside is fabulous! They are putting on a number of different kinds of shows now, including concerts and the occasional play. And they have a working Wurlitzer organ that they play before most performances. For more info on the theater, go to their website:

And it is right across the street from the St. George Library Center.

I was the head usher in this

I was the head usher in this theatre in 1950 -1952. It was beautiful then and now. What a walk down the aisle of history to find this site. The ticket person was named Helen. Funny how I can remember this theatre, its lights, the balcony and the ushers room on the mezzanine, and the ticket sales woman but I can't seem to remember day before yesterday. John
