SYNOPSIS:
Treasures of New York: St. George Theatre takes viewers behind the curtain of a vibrant theatre and beloved community institution on Staten Island. Starting in the golden age of vaudeville, the film follows the St. George Theatre's story of survival and transformation through decades of disrepair - until a local dance teacher and her daughters step in to rescue the theatre and turn it into the thriving live performance venue it is today.
