From Newday.comBy Tory N. Parrish @ToryParrish1 Updated November 1, 2019 11:38 AM PRINT SHARE Movie theater owner Jay Levinson is getting ready for a new arrival.

He will repaint the walls, upgrade the marquee and replace the carpet at his 1960s-era, four-screen theater, Elwood Quad, in East Northport in a few months. He also plans to lower ticket prices.

The new arrival he’s preparing for isn’t a blockbuster movie.

Credit: Newsday / Steve Pfost It’s the new AMC Huntington Square 12, a state-of-the-art, 12-screen theater with reclining seats and stadium seating that will open at a former Sears department store site in East Northport — less than a mile from Elwood Quad — by the end of the year.

“We are concerned,“ said Levinson, who also owns the Bellmore Playhouse, a seven-screen movie theater that is about 20 years old. “When AMC opens, it’s going to be at least a 15% drop. It could be more,” he said.

The number of independent and small-chain movie theaters has been shrinking for years as they lose customers to large chains with more theater amenities, subscription-based online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu, and other entertainment options.

Long Island’s independent operators also cite the costs of the rising minimum wage and high taxes, utilities, rent and movie studio fees.

“I believe that the independent theaters will always be there. But there’s not many of us left,” Levinson said.

Long Island had a total of 40 movie theaters in 2018, down 21.6 percent from 51 in 2001, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Nationwide during the same period, the number declined 9.9 percent to 4,370 movie theaters, according to the bureau.

Most of the movie theaters in the United States are mom-and-pop operations, but four large chains — AMC Entertainment Inc., Cineworld Group PLC (owner of Regal), Cinemark Holdings Inc. and The Marcus Corp. — account for about 55 percent of revenue, according to Patrick Corcoran, spokesman for the National Association of Theatre Owners, a Washington, D.C.-based trade group.

AMC, the largest operator in the United States, has seven theaters on Long Island, including a 17-screen, 21-year-old venue in Stony Brook that it plans to renovate next year.

The company’s new East Northport theater “will be a state-of-the-art, brand-new movie theater where people can expect the best that AMC has to offer,” said Ryan Noonan, a spokesman for Leawood, Kansas-based AMC.

In June 2018, Regal opened its ninth Long Island theater — a $30 million, 13-screen venue in Lynbrook on the site of its closed six-screen theater that opened in 1922 and was demolished in 2016.

The new theater features reclining seats with electronic controls, stadium seating and kiosks for self-service ticketing. Knoxville, Tennessee-based Regal Cinemas is the second-largest theater operator.

New theaters have an average of eight to 12 screens, Corcoran said.

It’s tough for small theaters to match reclining It’s tough for small theaters to match reclining seats such as these at Regal Cinemas 13 in Lynbrook, because they take up twice the space of regular seats, theater owners say. Credit: Ed Betz

Please update, Regal Union Square 17 OPEN AND RENOVATING

The theatre is expanding to 17 screens. Cinema 4 and Cinema 8 balconies will be separate auditoriums. I don’t like the idea Regal is destroying Cinema 4 and 8 into seperate screens.

The theatre is getting new seats, no recliners. They are installing Klipsch surround speakers.

Curently, theatres 1 to 7 is still open and they recently open theatres 10, 12, 14, 15 and 16 on the second floor. The second floor looks similar to the recently open Regal Essex theatre. The only refreshment stand that open is on the main level. Look in the photos section of the new screens.

Theatre 10 121 seats (old theatre 9) Theatre 12 130 seats (old theatre 10) Theatre 14 138 seats (old theatre 12) Theatre 15 118 seats (old theatre 13) Theatre 16 86 seats (old theatre 14)

Just asking, maybe Netflix might of installed a projector. I do prefer, but will see film sometimes because the producers went of their way to make a film release.

Do you know if their a website for the Paris Theatre.
