If you’ve ever been to the village of Margaretville in the Catskills, you’ll find this c.1922 movie theater quite familiar. The 8400 square foot space, emblazoned with “Galli-Curci Theatre” above the front entrance, sits right in the center of town and is in need of someone to come along and revitalize this art-deco beauty that comes with a surprise inside.

The 5500 square foot former screening room is currently a big gutted space with high ceilings and a cement floor. In the lobby, there are pressed tin ceilings and original glass panes. What would you do with a space this size? Turn it back into an indie movie house? Event space? Gallery? Retail space? Roller rink? The possibilities seem endless.

Now, for the building’s surprise center: A huge 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment filled with natural light and includes wood floors, French doors, large eat-in kitchen, dining room, and tons of built-ins. Looking for a live/work situation? This could be The One. Located along the Delaware River approx. 2.5 hours from NYC.

Fun Fact about the theater: It’s named after opera singer and Margaretville denizen Amelita Galli-Curci, who also sang at the theater’s opening night.
