St. George Theatre

Opened in December 1929, the St. George Theatre in its day was the most magnificent theatre on Staten Island — the island’s newest movie and vaudeville house — and it outshone most of its competitors, including Manhattan’s Capitol Theatre on Broadway. Until 1972 the theatre managed to stay open as a movie house, after that it was used as a roller rink, an antiques showroom, and a night club. In 2004, after being padlocked for over 30 years, the theatre became a performing arts center.

Upgrades during Phase I of the current renovations include the design, fabrication, and installation of an entire new rigging system, as well as the design, fabrication, and installation of a new exterior.
