This megaplex is unique in that rather than being a free standing theatre or as part of a mall, it is part of the Tanger Outlet Stores complex.
The seating capacities of the individual auditoriums are as follows:
Theatres 1 & 16 282
Theatres 2 & 7 159
Theatres 3,6,12,15 131
Theatres 4,5,13,14 103
Theatres 8 & 11 187

Many thanks. Just completed the “paperwork” to put the new Deer Park Stadium 16 & Imax up and have five others in the research stage. I was so happy to find this site. I thought I was the only obsessive one on the subject.
Thanks. Problem here is I have a laptop and don’t use a mouse. Do I have an equivalent of “right click”? Obviously, I’m just learning as specific needs/desires show up. I’ve been eyeballing various courses at the library but this sort of thing is beyond the basic sort of stuff they are offering.
Thanks, you made my day. I’ve got to get to your level so I don’t have to rely on you or Warren to access images I’ve found.
Something weird is going on with this site. When I went back to check my 5:39 entry it wasn’t there. So I put in another one. Now both are there.
I just entered “hampton bays historical society”. When a series of items came up I clicked on the first one. When the home page came up I clicked on Hampton Bays history and voila, as they say. If something special is going on the home page doesn’t always come up first. Would that be a problem to access? I’m very new to the computer and haven’t a clue how I’d create a link.
Seats from this theatre found additional life in the Bellmore Movies.
Main Street/ Montauk Highway same difference. It just depends upon what is in fashion.
As far as the photo is concerned I just enter “hampton bays historical society”. On the home page is a category “Hampton Bays History”. Click on that and there is the image of the theatre from 1935. You can actually see the 35 cent admission price on the side of the building. Today the home page came up first. Sometimes there is a feature showing some current activity and you have to scroll to get you back to the home page.
Glad you found my posting of this site Lost Memory. You have the techie knowledge to access the image from the Hampton Bays Historical Society. As far as closing and opening again the society records have no knowledge of this but a family relative, who is at the society, gave me the info I had. She’s trying to check further through family members, building permits and fire commissioner reports. Hopefully, we’ll be able to flesh this out more.
Not being from Queens I never visited the theatre . But my cousin did all the time and that is where he contracted ringworm.
Ditto on the Mermaid and did see it at the Music Hall (probably the first show when the admission was only 90 cents, and probably using the “secret” subway level box office and bypassing the long lines outside. Hope you read the bio of Esther. It’s really a great read.
Any theatre on a major highway service road is a plus. It’s almost odd that this one was positioned at a relatively obscure location some twenty years ago and now that there has been major development eastward closed it down in favor of the new one in Holtsville a couple of exits back. When you look at the spotty location of theatres out here any viewing involves a drive of 20 miles (which is one of the reasons I rarely go, even to see pictures I want to see).
True, but it adds to the picture of in the day.
When I did an advanced search on Hemstead Theatre there were only seven hits. Number 5 shows the theatre with the policemen already available, the preceeding one is entitled Fulton Avenue. The text mentions the sign on the building. This maybe too tricky to enlarge enough to actually see the sign and not worth the effort.
Warren could you also access the photo from the Long Island Memories site that has the sign stating on this site will be constructed the Hemptead Theatre. I came upon it just a few moments ago.
Unfortunately, the link used by Lost Memory no longer seems to be in operation but the postcard image and the 1925 construction site can be seen on Long Island Memories.According to that site the theatre was under construction for several years and only opened in 1928.
I plan on adding the Plaza. I have some material but am holding off since once something is up I don’t think “we” have the ability to change it.
As far as the town is concerned, it is much improved. There is a lot of revitalization of Merrick Road and Main Street and, of course, there’s the whole restaurant row down by the docks.
And now on the same collection is a picture of the completed Opera House.
And on the subject of changing library links, the one posted by Lost Memory dated 1961 was probably the one showing a new marquee showing the Skouras name being erected which appears on the same site as the two from Warren G. Harris. If you would please do the honors, sir.
Just recently looking at Long Island Memories I came upon a nice photo of the Squire which was on a b & w post card dated 1951.
Even before it was the State or the Fine Arts, this was the site of the Fulton Theatre. Long Island Memories has a picture of the boarded up Fulton saying that on this site was to be erected a 500 seat movie theatre.
With some time to kill I actually looked at all the pictures on this site and found another postcard image of the Glen theatres, from the opposite side as the previous one. This one identified it as the Glen.
The Long Island Memories has a postcard image of what they call the Glen Cove theatre. There is no marquee to this effect. But since the location is Glen Street, I’m sure its the Glen. Would some techie please provide direct access to this. http://188.8.131.52
