Starlite Theater demolition to begin

LATHAM, N.Y. – It was once one of the Capital Region's premier entertainment venues, but that now the Starlite Theater in Latham will soon be demolished.

Demolition is set to begin Thursday on the old Starlite Theater, along Route 9R in Latham.

Headliners like Johnny Cash, Sammy Davis Jr., and Bob Hope took the stage in this once-pristine theater, but it has been vacant since 1998 and now remains an eye-sore.

Redevelopment plans include residential, office and retail space.
