Please remove this from your site since it has closed permanently. It no longer exists. It was a really lovely community theater that could no longer pay its bills. A real loss for Long Beach Island.

Very sad that the theater closed it's doors. Had tremendous shows, talented actors - and a great ice cream shop next door that was affiliated with the theater. Why hasn't the Borough of Beach Haven, or a non-profit group stepped up and purchase the building...More

So very sorry to see this wonderful theater close its doors for good. Hoping someone will buy it and keep it going but this doesn't look good!

I wonder who bought it??? I am not sure but i heard they can not take buildings down. It would be great if it was turned into a quaint little shopping village and keeping the theater the way it was.

Better take this off your listings, the theater went out of business and so did their ice cream parlor with the singing waiters. Big loss for the tourists.
