According to a shared ad with the Ronkonkoma Art Cinema and the Regent in Bay Shore appearing in the Newsday Vault classic edition of May 18, 1983, the theater lasted longer than the impression given in the blurb.

From what I can tell, the theater opened unceremoniously without an ad as a second run theater, playing such features as “Fiddler On The Roof” and “Sounder”. First show I could find was June 20,1973 with Steve McQueen in “The Getaway” and the Jack Lemmon comedy “The War Between Men and Women” and the last mainstream show was “Live & Let Die” and “Scorpio” on September 26, 1973. The next week they went “X” although softcore, with “All The Loving Couples” and “Is There Sex After Death?” but went hardcore soon after.

Per my source when I created this site, it wasn’t always adult despite the two year discrepancy in the date. Interested to see what you found in the Newsday archives.

Newsday archives show adult films playing since July 1973 which seems to have been when it opened.
