taketheatrai commented about Grand Avenue Cinemas on May 28, 2005 at 8:10 am

Grand Avenue usually plays 20th Century Fox and New Line like Lynbrook does and some Dreamworks and Disney. Rockville Centre and the Fantasy usually get films from Paramount, Universal and Warner Brothers and some Dreamworks and Disney films.

Grand Avenue could show the same films with the Regal Lynbrook Sixplex.

This is a very good place to see movies. All screens have DTS Digital sound. Loews plans to put new seats in Theatre 1 and 3 and in 2005 and 2, 4 and 5 in 2006.

This theatre is a much better place to see a movie over Lynbrook or Malverne.

taketheatrai commented about UA Lynbrook 6 on Dec 21, 2004 at 8:39 pm

The UA Lynbrook is a terribel place to see a movie when its crowded. In Theatres 1 and 2, the seats have obstructed vews with the persons head blocking the film.

The upstairs auditoriums are MONO. No stereo or digital sound. Cinemas 1 and 2 have DTS.

REGAL plans to expand it to 10 to 14 screens. The Fantasy in Rockville Center was built in 1989 was design properly. All Fantasy screens had DTS sound.

taketheatrai commented about UA Sheepshead Bay Stadium 14 on Dec 21, 2004 at 8:30 pm

The theatre open in 1987 as 9 screens. THe original entrance was off the Belt Parkway. Frm the lobby you were able to see the ocean. In 1997, UA added 5 screens to the current cound of 14. 12 out of the 14 are stadium seating. Theatres 8 and 9 were renovated, but weren’t converted to stadium seating due to the dimensions of the houses. Their are know three mens and womans restrooms. Their is a 3 story parking garage. All screens have digital sound.

The theatre was built in 1989 and is still open. The business is down when National Amusements opened the Linden Blvd in 1998 and Jamaica Center a few years later. The theatre is outdated with no cupholders and digital sound in one screen.

The theatre is small houses. The two big screens are cinema 4 and 5 which has 125 seats. Theatres 2 and 3 have 80 seats and Theatre 1 has 46 seats. It probadly the msllest capacity in Long Island.

DTS sound is in screens 4 and 5

The seats are a tight squeeze and the small house cinema 1 has the most comfortable seats of all five
