Jackson Theatre - Jackson Heights (Queens), NY </span>40-31 82nd Street <br> Jackson Heights (Queens), N.Y. 11373<br> The 1500-seat Jackson Theatre, designed by Herbert J. Krapp, opened in the 1920s with movies only. It had no stage facilities and never presented vaudeville, though during silent days it had a resident orchestra that accompanied the movies. The Jackson was originally built and operated by Grob &amp; Knobel, a small circuit also responsible for the Boulevard Theatre in Jackson Heights and the Sunnyside Theatre (both also designed by Herbert J. Krapp). In 1928, Grob &amp; Knobel sold all three theatres to William Fox, who lost them in bankruptcy in 1930. In a liquidation of the Fox properties, the Jackson and Boulevard were taken over by Skouras Theatres and the Sunnyside by Century. <br>
