I’ve lived in the Hamptons every summer for nearly 30 years, but I’ve never seen a movie here. I’ve seen it, though. An adorable little “mom and pop” movie theater that shows first-run movies. I’m glad it hasn’t closed down.

Can anyone shed a light on the approximate age/decade of this theatre please? I have a listing in the Film Daily Yearbook;1941 edition, of a Montauk Theatre, located in the township of Montauk Point, Long Island which has a a seating capacity of 350. It is listed as ‘Closed’ in that edition and doesn’t appear in either the 1943 or 1950 editions of F.D.Y.

According to the manager the season is generally April to October but others factors may influence those dates, particularly the availability of a film that he particularly wants to screen. He also said the theatre goes back to the 70’s which surprises me.

I totally forgot someone on here took pics. I was racing my bike to catch the train last nite and went right past it. Had my camera in my pocket. The building is indeed very nondescript, almost the size of a small gentleman’s club.

This theater was indeed built in the 70’s. I remember seeing the first “Alien” there. It became the town movie house after the Montauk Manor Playhouse closed.

Tinseltoes the problem is unless you are a subscriber to the Wall Street Journal online you can’t access the story. A synopsis please.
