If you go to google earth it will show the theatre…the apts were always there..when you go to a street view the entrance and marque was below the first apt. The lobby was under the apt.’s..the theatre it self is still as it was stores replace lobby…I ran The Playhouse for a few years under UA…the only other thing changed, was an alley that was on Middleneck Rd that theatre patrons could exit now it’s a store..

Coate..you are right, I was GM there at that time, one it had a World Premiere on the 18th or 19th…Back then there was what they called “A RED CARPET” run..then a few weeks later opened wide.

Yes, I remember it..the walls looked like the inside of a poloroid [spell check if needed] camera..

Did you hear there is a guy who was in the theatre that night and wants to sue the theatre…He wasn’t even hurt. How do we know if he was even there…and in NY we thought our only problem was our nanny Mayor wants us to stop selling 32oz soda.. I do think Moviebuff82 is right…

Nice job…except for gate and flower urn, that what it looked like through the 70’s…I had new carpet put down from the box office area to all three floors and made over all the walls giving it the 1923 vibe..

Have you ever checked out show at CM PERFORMING ARTS CENTER? AKA OAKDALE… they are never dark new shows every one to two weeks…It can happen..just need good bookers to fill gaps between artsy shows, if that’s a word.Smithtown is in a great spot to draw from N & S shore..

You’re right about Islip…Cable V who owns Clearview Theatres is selling them off..I hope at least someone from this country buys them…have you heard anything? Thanks

Thanks Ed, that is what I was talking about. I don’t get confused, I know both theatres very well..Back to the utube video that started this conversation…pitch or slope what ever you want to call it, is there..again watch the floor where it meets the wall and follow it down…More important..who do ya’ll think will buy Clearview Cinemas?

The Squire was a car dealer show room before it was a theatre…The main floor was and is flat even after they diced it up…That being said…if you look at the youtube again, and look at where the floor and wall meet you can see the floor pitch down…Also some isles are not the same pitch as the seating area, you can see on the clip where they are standing..I don’t think you rule out movies ever being played there..
