The theater was built in the 1930's to be a Vaudeville theater. In the
1950's live shows were replaced with movies. The theater closed in the 1980's
and has fallen into a state of steep disrepair. However, a committee has been
formed to restore the theater as both a stage and movie venue. Restoration work
is on going.

Employees of the theater and historical committee have
reported hearing the sounds of breathing and what appears to be a human heart
beat in several locations throughout the building. Many employees will not be in the
building alone at night.

"lights out" investigation. The Tech
Department set up a DVR camera in one of the
theater's movie rooms that was reported to have most of the activity.
Digital audio recorders and other equipment used included
K2 EMF meters, TH-2A and
IR thermometers were also used during the investigation

LIPI members were divided into 2 teams for the investigation. Each team
investigated a different area of the theater, rotating periodically so that

conclusion of the investigation.
Audio: No EVPs were collected. Ambient noise from the street out side
echoed through the theater making audio contaminated and difficult to analyze.
Video and Photographs: Dust severely hampered the use of our cameras. No
paranormal activity was seen.
EMF meters: Our K2 meters picked up some sporadic results. However the
amount of loose wiring and open electrical systems in the theater due to the
repair work probably accounted for the readings. None of our other EMF meters
had any paranormal readings.
Conclusion: At this
time Long Island Paranormal investigators can not confirm or debunk the presence
of paranormal activity in the Islip Pavilion theater. A follow up investigation
will be scheduled as soon as possible.
