Calderone Theatre Collection

Salvatore Calderone (1878-1929) and his son, Dr. Frank Calderone (1901-1987), were visionary theatre operators in Nassau County, N.Y. (Dr. Calderone was also a noted physician and health officer.) Their Calderone theatre circuit brought quality entertainment—in the form of live stage shows and films—to the area for decades. This collection features photographs ranging from 1948-1971 from Hofstra University’s Calderone Theatre Collection. Included are theatre interior, exterior, construction, and grand opening photographs.
