When I lived in Bellerose the cashier at the local theater was, I believe, a single parent of two sons, and a WWII widow. The doorman was an elderly gentleman. I think that was often the combination at the Century Theatres which always had continuous performances rather than just evening and, perhaps, matinees like most of the Long Island venues.

One of the “public entertainments” was the May 12, 1915 boxing match between Special Delivery Hirsch and Sammy Baker.

The building was recently sold. Let’s see what happens next.

Deja vu. When I was a youth in the 1950s, the Eastern Long Island Theaters under the, long gone, Prudential banner had a policy of having matinees on rainy summer days. The Hampton Arts is offering that this year.

At the July 11th meeting the subject of the Playhouse demo was deferred to the August 8 meeting when it will probably be deferred to the September meeting when it will be deferred to….You get the picture.

Still no pictures of demo in progress. What is the current status of the site?

Current commercial shot in and around Kiester shows the facade of the Kee. Must be a bad commercial. Don’t remember what it was for and I’ve seen it a couple of times. Definitely had some relationship to the slang term kiester.

Also they’ve probably reserved seats. Are not the pylons still maintained at the entrances to the mall?

As promised. Uploaded photos of the new signage on the front (Terry Street) and also that on the side facing Ocean Avenue. Very low key in keeping with the building and the neighborhood.

On June 21st they held a special celebration to welcome the new exterior signage for the theater. Have to go by and take a picture to share.

There were a group of lawyers responsible for both this theater and what was, then, Movieland of Mastic. This fact is particularly interesting since they expanded the Mastic venue without the necessary permits.

Located in the corner of what was originally the Pine Shopping Center, the theater achieved it’s multiplex status by chopping up the original building and expanding it’s footprint in both directions.

Bow-tie has unloaded a lot of the theaters they acquired from Clearview.

The fate of the theater continues to be tabled at each meeting. The building will fall down of it’s own volition at the rate things are going.

The pylon is still up advertising the Vineyards, a gated community. However, the entry to the Vineyards is a bit west of the entrance to the former theater. The models at the Vineyards are now open for viewing.

Re the overview. If you look at the photos section the theater began life as a Quad. How they got up to ten is another story. But prior to Loew’s getting involved the sign on the property, for more than a year, said that an Imperial Twin Theater was coming. Other than margarine the name Imperial means nothing to me.
