And, unfortunately, they took most of their links with them.

Firstly, I thought this theatre was on Austin not Lefferts.

Secondly, shops are on both sides of the Ponte Vecchio all the way across Been there.

Sounds like this place is on the way out. They don’t get the product and when they do they don’t publicize it.

It was there when I moved to Farmingdale in 1967. I think it made it into the early nineties.

Something is wrong here. Top says see all 20 comments. When you go to review them it show there are 18. I know I made a later comment that the theatre was located at the left end of the shopping center. You can see that from the picture. The exterior wall is such a tell tale with that stepped feature. The space now houses a gym.

Fritz was mild compare to what followed.

The Bethpage was located on the South side of Hempstead Turnpike west of the Seaford Oyster Bay. There is now a cojoined building there which is a medical professional center. The portion on the left was the old theatre. The next time I’m in the area I’ll look up the address and put it on CT so the street view will be correct.

Assuming my contention is correct the space is now occupied by a grill called Zim Zar and a Super Cuts.

Although the space is still empty there is a sign indicating “Leased” without identifying the new occupent.

Since I just established it maybe the Google link isn’t updated in real time…. .

The good news is that it’s still standing.

robboehm commented about Edwards Theatre on Dec 24, 2011 at 4:11 am

I was able to look at a fancy pamphlet which was prepared extolling the attributes of the Edwards Theatre. The fans were wonderful bringing breezes on a balmy day; the lobby was like entering an English mansion; page after page of superlative adjectives. I don’t know how it seemed in the day but now it’s a hoot. You can view the whole in the Long Island Collection at the East Hampton Library.

They did a fabulous job rejuvenating this gem.

No Century Theatre ever played Cinerama.

What a fabulously appropriate name for an adult theatre.

At the very least one would hope that someone gets in there and takes a myriad of pictures assuming the worst.

It took a couple of weeks but they finished boarding up the entrance. Then they painted it grey. I wonder why grey, it is a white building. When they closed the Brookhaven Multiplex and boarded up the entrance they painted it white. Somehow the white, albeit boarded up, looked better.

Last movie to play here was Miss Congeniality. The poster remained in the display box many months after the theatre closed.

Many of the old theatres had downstair dressing rooms and cages for animal acts. Before they levelled and rebuilt the Southampton they used some of the downstairs area for an additional auditorium. The entrance was separate from the lobby. Stairs descending from the outside, albeit covered by a canopy.

How many dressing rooms were there? Were they on the main or basement level?

Do you have any Century memorabilia? I had all sorts of programs, announcement of the Meadow and Shore before I moved. Never thought I’d have use for them. Who could have anticipated CT?

robboehm commented about Granada Theater on Nov 23, 2011 at 6:40 pm

When I was a child my parents happened to drive thru Patchogue. That was probably in the 1950s. I was a movie theatre nut even then. The Granada was already dark by that time, and before it was converted to retail. When I came upon CT a few years ago it was one of the first things I went to check out, just to reassure that my memory was correct.

I also remember the Old Town Theatre in Smithtown Branch, which I added to CT earlier this year.

I also thought there was a Moriches Theatre, not the Center Moriches or the Jerry Lewis which became the Center Cinema. That I haven’t been able to confirm.

POMovie2 Maybe you could go to the Encore site and flesh out the info. Was there a sloped floor. A more exact location, etc.

Rivoli, from your postings it seems that you really got around the Century Circuit as a sub for one whose main house was the Grove.

They announced another 150 theatre for the Gardiner Manor Shopping Center in Bay Shore. But that never materialized and all the existing Bay Shore theatres- Bay Shore, Regent, Cinema, Bay Shore Sunrise Drive In, Fifth Avenue Drive in, Loew’s South Shore Mall and the Encore closed.
