I recall seeing “Deal of the Century' with Chevy Chase, Sigourney Weaver and that black guy during the first few weeks after the theater opened. I remember they gave out the movie times on xeroxed sheets of paper which were written on a typewriter.

I went there only once, and saw Shindler’s List. I recall the parking lot was full and I had to park behind McDonalds.

I saw Dumb and Dumber here. My ticket, soda and popcorn came to like $7.

I think I only saw one movie there, Return of the Jedi. Wanted to see it on it’s first day of release and waited on line for 5 hours. My buddy and I would take turns running to the deli in the adjacent shopping center for food and drinks while we waited.

Not living in Lindenhurst, I went there once and only once in the summer of 2000 and saw “Frequency”. I figured the place was on it’s way out cuz the staff was unorganized and I was able to walk in without a ticket.

This was my local theater in the 70s-early 80s and I saw so many movies there—Blue Water White Death, Charlotte’s Web, Jaws, Grease, Escape From Alcatraz, Empire Strikes Back, History of the World Part 1, Poltergeist among others. The last time I was there was in 1986 and saw Short Circuit. I never sat in the balcony—it was always closed whenever I went there. They had this tiny concession stand. After the Commack Multiplex opened, this place was doomed. The area is horrible now.
