You've been to the Bellport theater that once was a barn. The Gateway Playhouse opened in 1941 as a local alternative to Broadway. A young Robert Duvall and Gene Hackman performed there, and the 500-seat theater brings thousands of people to Bellport each week during the summer months.(Credit: Brittany Wait)
