THEN: Oritani Theater
NOW: A dress store and a travel service
Erected in 1926, the Oritani — named for Oritam, chief of the Achkinheskcy Indian tribe in the 17th century — quickly became a local landmark. It showed Will Rogers movies in the 1930s, Betty Grable movies in the 1940s and, yes, from 1977 to 1979 it even offered midnight showings of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."
