Located on Staten Island 's North Shore Empire Zone. Built almost 75 Years ago, this theatre once housed 3,000 people and was a showcase for celebrities of that time and later, as a motion picture venue. It enjoyed a successful economic life from 1929 until the 1970’s. At that time, vaudeville was entertainment of a bygone era and multi-screen, small capacity motion picture theatres were cropping up throughout the island. Attempts were made to re-vitalize the theatre by using it as a flea market, an antique showroom, a night club, and skating rink. None of these lasted very long and many who remembered or heard fond stories of its past grandeur, wondered what would become of the beautiful St. George Theatre . Hope was raised in January 2001 when, in his State of the City address, then Mayor Rudolph Giuliani promised resources for the renovation of the St.George Theatre into a Performing Arts Center which would ensure revitalization into the entire neighborhood. Unfortunately, the tragic events of 9/11/01 understandably put a halt to these resources.

O projeto de recuperação encarou um grande desafio que era respeitar os aspectos históricos e ao mesmo tempo dotá-lo de modernidade. Ao longo de sua história, o teatro sofreu sucessivas obras de reformas que foram alterando a forma original do prédio, adaptando espaços e desfigurando seus seus núcleos históricos, dando origem a um prédio com características de diferentes épocas. No entanto, a fachada manteve as linhas arquitetônicas neoclássicas da reforma de 1888 e 1889.

O Kart Indoor é uma modalidade de automobilismo, praticado em karts especiais, correndo em pistas cobertas. Sua popularização se deve ao baixo custo e elevada segurança.
É a realização para quem sonha ser piloto de corrida sem as responsabilidades de ter, manter e ajustar um kart. Você chega em um indoor, coloca os equipamentos de segurança, faz um rápido briefing, corre de 15 a 30 minutos, sente a verdadeira emoção de participar de uma corrida de verdade, paga e vai embora, se quiser, porque outra grande emoção que o indoor oferece é torcer pelos amigos, ali na beira da pista, ouvindo o ronco dos motores, os chiados dos pneus, sentindo o cheiro de combustível de carro de corrida e vibrando com as belas ultrapassagens típicas em indoor.
O automobilismo de alto rendimento tem mostrado que o primeiro degrau para a carreira de piloto profissional, que culmina na Fórmula 1, tem sido na maioria das vezes iniciada no kart.
A escola de pilotagem do Rioshopping Kart Indoor, dispõe de profissionais treinados e capacitados com aulas práticas e teóricas, atendendo às aspirações de cada aluno. Quem sabe não temos escondido dentro de nós um novo e promissor Ayrton Senna?
