SUFFERN - A Rockland County theater hosted a celebration for its 90th anniversary on Sunday.

The Lafayette Theater in Suffern first opened its doors on March 3, 1924, making it one of the oldest theaters in the country. To celebrate the big milestone, the theater sold tickets Sunday for 25 cents, the original ticket price from 1924.

A live performance of Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First" comedy skit was performed for the sold-out crowd of 1,000 people on Sunday. While Sunday's Oscars honored the 75th anniversary of the "Wizard of Oz," the Lafayette Theater also screened a special 3D version of the film.
