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.

almost no foyer on the second floor this would not have been a theater that you could split the balcony.
