South Bay Cinemas Begins Remodel After 18-Month Delay

Only visible signs on the exterior are a chain link fence surrounding the building and a couple of dumpsters. I would have thought the exterior might have needed some repair before addressing the interior.

Has the work stopped altogether? Or has more progress been made since June 17, 2018

Any work being done is on the inside. Seem to be more dumpsters.

I stopped by on Monday afternoon July 23, 2018. There are fresh pigeons but no tradesmen’s vehicles and no tradesmen working. There is a building permit displayed. Has the renovation group abandoned the project? Anyone know?

Passed by a little while ago. Nothing seems to have changed. Figured out how they plan on going from 5 to 8 screens, assuming they ever get the 5 from the existing 3. They plan on taking over the building next door which houses the liquor store. When you look at the artists conception of the new South Bay you can see that. Incidentally there is also no new information on the Facebook page.

They’ve stripped the exterior from the marquee and there are building materials on the roof but no other signs of activity since I passed in August.

The building materials are still on the roof and the cracks in the facade facing Montauk Highway have not been corrected. However, they have applied some sort of undercoating on some of the exterior walls, there are two dumpsters with stuff in them and one can see a pile of rubble through one of the windows.

What kind of stuff is in the dumpsters

Can’t really see, Mike. Only a little over the top and they are behind a chain link fence.
