This was one of the jewels of the Century circuit for many years

Any thoughts on why Loew’s didn’t want this theatre?

I never knew the neighborhood run was that rigid on one week playdates on the first tier. I guess when pictures still had strong legs the second and third tier really benefitted.

There are no cinemas close and still they cant make it?

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.

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.
