I have a few really cool memories of this place. One was playing there with a bunch of other local small time singer songwriters on an off night when they had a cancelation and they just through a show together. It was obscure and cool and probably will never happen again. It was called the Bittersweet Express and consisted of all the artists that used to frequent Bitter Sweet. It was put together by a wonderful cat named Marcus Cristi.

There were about 50 people there and I remember how great it sounded on stage, un amped before soundcheck. It was so cool just being alone on that stage with my guitar, and knowing each and every person in the crowd. the show truly had that little rascals, let's put on a show and save grand pa's barn feel. I think the sound guys and bar tenders were like why are we here?I think the date was December 9th 2001 or 2.

We actually recorded the show. Saw the band X there and Adam and the Ants in the 80's. Watched the super bowl there a few years ago and my friend and I were two of the nine people that showed up. I personally am glad they don't have a dance night anymore.

Royal Oak is crazy enough on a weekend night. I like it when this place does really cool shows.

The Royal Oak Theatre was owned and operated by Community Theatres (Goldberg Twins) in the 60' s, 70. & 80 as a motion picture theatre. Fred Palletrito was the D. M.

A great place to see a movie.

Remember going here in the mid 1960s and it was a very impressive place inside. I believe red velvet carpeting, etc. Had fun in the balcony throwing popcorn below.

Remember trying to sit through a second showing of the Beatles Help! movie until my mom came inside to drag me and my friend out!.

The Royal Oak Theater is alive and well. They are back open once again doing a variety of shows. They do not host any more dance nights, as concerts are more the appeal.

According to the Daily Tribune this week, it has abruptly closed.
