This was Centurys big money maker and still does well today.Rko was renovating this theater when Cineplex bought the chain avery bad design .This theaters box office #s were are hugh. Avery good matinee house also.
How is this doing as a quad?
any info on this theater / for sale
is it for sale?
God what a bad twin
lots of good points all around
It went from Century to almi century to RKO century warner to just RKO to CINEPLEX ODEON
Joe show her this list and see if she remembers, my movie history centurys york mgr,rko commack twin mgr, warner twin ast mgr ,art mgr, national twin and new warner mgr both at the same time and then manhattan south dm Cineplex Odeon.We had many a joke and busted chops with each other and Ken N.
this was a nice theater in its day
This was the district office for century /cineplex odeon for all its years
ADONIS name is to much for this site.. LOL
joe do you know ROSE?
Sorry one more point as an art house just to big as a single as a quad rent just to high.
We would all like to see nice single theaters doing wellthat is why many of us are on this site and i hope one day soon to own my own single or twin.The mall never helped this theater late shows after 9:30 you could only come in and out of one mall door Holidays forget the theater was the only thing open and it was dead.Why did they keep it open so long 1. UA and Century were in it together for some years2. as a single the rent was so cheap with a 50 year lease ,when they multiplexed the rent was raised to current prices.3. It stayed open in the hopes it would be multiplexed that bought it about 5 years until all the permits and mall said it was ok.This was one of the last multiplexes of a century house soon after only new theaters went up.
GUSTAVELIFTING- Long land Mall theaters do not work staying open does not mean it was making money.I saw the # for SMITHAVEN FOR MANY YEARS as a manager and a district manager and as the one who over saw the renovation for CINEPLEX ODEON I can tell you it was a big box office bomb. That is not to say as a single it did not make money on films from time to time.
always did good bsns for RKO
nice theater/old ua style/one would not think this would have lasted this long.
i dont ever see this as an art house not the crowed.
i wonder if ROSEY is with him ?
Cant believe there still at it all these years.
Creative entertainment is old century and rko bookers.
almost no foyer on the second floor this would not have been a theater that you could split the balcony.
no 70 mm
