Destroyed by fire aka demolished.
Need a little qualification here. If this theater was built on the site of the old Rave 12 the demo date could not have been one month before the opening of the new. June 2014?
27 seats! There are people with home theaters that seat more than that! They spent $60,000 to go digital for 27 seats?
Wow, a whole 728 seats. In the day most single screen theaters had more than that.
Theater with an identity crisis: half of the print references call it the Village Square Mall Theater.
Large Korean population in Flushing. Bayside is the closest town with a functioning theater albeit one which has been the subject of numerous complaints on this site.
David, there is no entry for the hardtop next to the drive-in which you mentioned. Will you be adding it to CT?
theatrefan – the original Shore was actually levelled. The new shared the same footprint.
You’d think they’d set them back from the road a bit.
theatrefan check out the old and the new Shore in Huntington, New York. An even worse box.

Place your bets folks. What will be finished first: the new Lynbrook, LIRR access to Grand Central or the Second Avenue Subway in Manhattan? The latter two are actually in progress after decades of planning.
Uploaded a picture I found on Facebook.
According to the West Australian Cinema Web, an online service of the Australian Ministry of Motion Picture and Television, Hoyt’s 8 was not destroyed, but rather expanded to the, renamed, 14 screen Carousel Multiplex which official opened on October 28, 1999. Originally there was speculation that up to 24 auditoriums would result.
I confirmed on the Hoyt’s site that 14 is the number of screens.
I have uploaded photos as the Hoyt 8 and the subsequent megaplex from the Web site.
Bayshore-Sunrise twinned; Westbury tripled.
According to the Wikipedia article the Gardens portion closed in 1968 and there was an extensive renovation to the indoor theater. After a fire in the 1970s the theater was restored but closed 9/24/83.
New owners demolished the gardens adding a second auditorium which seated 210. At the time of the reopening the capacity of the original auditorium was 500 for a total of 710.
ticotone- whoever wrote that article left out a zero. The capacity was 2,500 cars making it the largest on Long Island.
Found the daytime shot featured on the Denney Architects site. Reasonable to assume they were the architects.
Uploaded pictures from the single screen days and postcard images.
Address is 7 James Service Place. Scenic Boardwalk area includes harbor, hotel, market and, of course theater.
Closing rumored to be related to leasing disagreements. Picture shown is the entrance to the mall not the cinemas themselves.
Uploaded a picture of the Bayview in the day.
Ritz Theatre Inc. was formed January 1, 1941. Was the corporation formed subsequent to the opening as the Theatrical Historical Society would imply?
