Theater will be closed on Monday March 6th to convert their computer systems. Will probably then reopen the next day as AMC Center Valley 16.
Looks like the AMC Tilghman Square 8 is undergoing conversion to all recliner seating, according to the AMC website. Right now, only 4 screens are currently open.
Just drove past the theater today. Sign on marquee says “Closes Sunday”.
Justin, I think the mall is looking to have it opened sometime in 2011. There is an article in today’s Pocono Record that talks all about the theatre and the changes to the mall. Here is the link:
Cinemark’s web site now has a listing under future theatres for a 12 screen complex at the Stroud Mall. I heard that it will be built behind the mall.
My dad knows one of the managers of the Cinemark at Moosic. He says Cinemark is looking to build in the Poconos. They are just looking for the right spot.
I just saw on movietickets.com that the Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus concert in Disney Digital 3D will be playing here starting on February 1st. Tickets go on sale tonight(Nov. 30th) at midnight.
Before the megaplex was built, Loews operated a triplex in the same shopping center. I believe it had always been a triplex so my guess is the #2 was referring to the actual theatre in the complex. I will add the listing for this theatre.
Theatre is located adjacent to the food court inside the Broadway Mall in Hicksville. The only National Amusements theatre on Long Island that is not a free standing structure. The complex was built before stadium seating became the norm.
The theatre has changed ownership this past summer and is now called The Grand Cinema and Coffee Shop. It continues the same programming as its predecessor.
Fandango now lists this as the Regal E-Walk Stadium 13.
UA was the previous operator of this theatre.
This theatre still does well because it is the only theatre in town. The Pocono Cinema in East Stroudsburg is an “art” cinema that shows movies not at the Stroud Mall. The Foxmoor Cinemas in Marshalls Creek is too far away for people from Stroudsburg and points west. Hoyts had plans a few years ago to build a 12 screen stadium seating complex in the same shopping center as Home Depot. That fell through when Hoyts decided to leave the US and sell all their theatres to Regal. When I lived in the area, many of us saw movies at the Regal in Easton are the Cinemark 20 in Moosic.
I do remember listings for the Larkfield theatre as well. I believe it was on Larkfield Road. I can’t confirm that since I never went there.
Originally opened as a triplex sometime in the late 70’s. The original owner was a small chain called Music Makers. When a restaurant in another part of the mall closed, Music Makers took over the lease and built cinemas 4 and 5. A few years after that they added 2 more cinemas next to the original triplex for a total of 7 cinemas, 5 in the original location and 2 near JC Penney.
Does anybody remember the theatre that used to be in a shopping center on Carmans Road about a mile or so north of the Sunrise Mall. I think it was still considered Massapequa. If my memory is correct, I believe the exterior was blue. I believe it was a twin. I just can’t remember the name.
The Elwood Cinema originally opened as a single screen. Then they split it in half. I believe now they have 4 screens.
I believe United Artists Theatres were the last operators of the Farmingdale as a discount house.
Well, the UA Farmingdale Stadium 10 and National Amusements Farmingdale Multiplex Cinemas are just a few miles up on Route 110.
Used to go here all the time. Also was known as the UA Movies at Sunrise Mall. Originally opened with 5 theatres. Then they knocked out theatre 2 and built a hallway with theatres 2, 6 and 7. Then they constructed another long hallway near theatre 5 to build theatres 8 and 9. One of the many unique things about this theatre was that the movies started at 10AM, the same time the mall opened.
Don’t know the year, but this originally opened as the Loews Nassau Quad.
If my memory is correct, the Encore was located in a strip mall on Montauk Highway in Bay Shore. It was locally owned and operated and only occupied the space of one storefront. I would estimate the theatre had about 150 seats at most. I remember seeing Jaws and Meatballs there in the late 70s.
For years, the Brentwood Theatre was operated by United Artists. It was operated mostly as a 99 cent house, with the occasional foray into first-run movies(I remember seeing Tron there on opening weekend). It was most successful as a discount house.
