The application, which had been scheduled to be heard at the Aug. 8 village board meeting, has now been adjourned to September.

The applicant, First Playhouse of Great Neck Corp., plans to raze the theater and replace it with a 20-unit apartment complex. The theater, at Maple Drive and Middle Neck Road, was built in 1922 and featured many popular Jazz Age performers such as the Marx Brothers.
