Suffolk Theater reopens in Riverhead

The last time the Suffolk Theater in downtown Riverhead was open for business, “Dirty Dancing” played on its Art Deco-framed single screen. When it reopens March 2, 2013, opening night headliners Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks will play that night.

“We've tried to replicate the glory that was in this place,“ says Dianne Castaldi, one of the people responsible for the renovations. “That's our vision.“ From the lighting fixtures to the carpeting, the Suffolk Theater has undergone an old-is-new-again rebirth.
