SethLewis you are correct I fear many many of the Clearview houses would be deemed “not worth the trouble” to a new company. As soon as AMC bought out Loew’s/Cineplex they closed the Rockville Center which had a very high per screen average because it “was only a twin”.

CVS built a new store a few blocks away and this will be closing shortly. They have banners hung announcing the property for lease.

The marquee is falling apart and there is terrible graffiti on the wall above it. I don’t know how the interior is but the outside looks really bad.

Why did they bother to renovate and not demolish, there is NOTHING left.

@Tinseltoes I remember that “shadowbox” effect on the recessed screen when the theatre was new.

With modern materials the blade could now weigh next to nothing and be twice as bright

Mike Abrahams who had the Lefferts and the Bethpage also operated this.

So is this place still intact? The retail seems to be just in the lobby.

This theatre was making money until it closed but AMC would not continue to operate a twin. The only competition is the 5 screen Fantasy. The problem is the bank owns the building and wants so much money to take it over. They only allow matiness on Sat & Sun because they share the parking lot. I guess its more profitable for them to let it sit empty 6 years then to lower the rent.

All it needs is a curtain

This is what all theatre screens should look like, only thing imagine how great this would look with curtains.

I can’t believe this place is still sitting empty.

Sadly NA ignores this theatre for the cinder block mess next door.

It has never been updated in the opening but the theatre was reopened again after Loew’s on 2 occasions as an independent, if you read back I posted the information a few years ago.

The sad part is they tore the walls apart and now the place downstairs is a mess. I fear it wont be long till vandals destroy it or a fire breaks out like the Madison. Too bad Bow Tie Cinemas thought it was too much of an investment to reopen.

So so sad

As an indie forget about them getting anything. If they use the main theatre as a mixed use facility but continue to show films, at least its keeping it open. I wonder about the multi-plex next door.

RobertR commented about AMC Loews Fresh Meadows 7 on May 11, 2011 at 6:44 am

I drove by here last night and the marquee looked like the last days of the old 42nd Street houses. Most of it was burned out and whoever put the titles up did not center anything and there were loads of empty gaps. I have not gone here in a few years but the last time I did it was shabby and run down.
