Montauk Playhouse Community Center
The Montauk Playhouse was built between 1928 and 1929 as a centerpiece for Carl Fisher's planned destination resort. The building is immense - it was built to accommodate 2 standard-size tennis courts with seating for over 6,"000. At the time of completion the building was said to be the largest of its kind in the world. The building is located directly across from the Montauk train station and just below the Montauk Manor. When visitors stepped off the train", their first vision of Montauk was (and still is) this striking structure. The Auditorium opened to the public on August 30, 1929 with great fanfare. The Montauk community, with support from the Town of East Hampton, has been working to resurrect this historic building and have it once again be the recreation and cultural centerpiece of this year-round community and resort. Facilities within the building opened in April 2006. On May 7, 2006.
