The Beacon Theatre was an American Art Deco performing arts theater located in Beacon, New York, in the Hudson Valley, on Main Street in the city's downtown section (known as "Theatre Square"), across from Fishkill Creek. The theater was run by 4th Wall Productions, which has been producing live theater in the Hudson Valley since 1994, from 2010 until they sold the building in 2015. The main stage was gutted and converted into residential units, with the second floor converted into a smaller performance space.In 2011, the original Beacon Theatre was featured in a music video for the song "Walk Katie Home" by American folk singer Seth Glier, on his album The Next Right Thing.HistoryThe site where the structure sits was originally the Dibble Opera House, constructed in 1886. The Opera House had also housed a roller skating rink in its early days until it was torn down in 1927 with plans to construct a new and modernized theater that would be large enough to accommodate larger crowds for the rise of films, known then as "photo-plays".With the intention of becoming a vaudeville house, the Beacon Theatre was constructed in 1928 as an Art Deco performing arts theater; however, its opening was delayed by six years with the coming of the Great Depression. When the theater opened in 1934, it was advertised as "the most beautiful theater from New York City to Albany" and was repurposed to operate as a movie theater, serving 1,200 people.
