Boarded Up in the Late 80s

The Brentwood movie theatre received a second life showing Bollywood films in 70mm on their huge, curvalon-style screen.

“It appears that this theatre might have been constructed as a D-150/Cinemascope/Cinerama theatre, although I was unable to confirm this”.

I just uploaded a couple of photos of the Brentwood Theatre from the late 1980s. The entire front is boarded up because it was all glass. Note the similarity of the building to that of the Bay Shore Cinema (the theater referred to on the road-side marquee of Brentwood).

For anyone interested, I uploaded a photo of the theatre cum soccer academy taken this past weekend just before Hurricane Irene.

Looks like by early 1985 Brentwood was getting films at the tail end of the first run. The January 28, 1985 issue of New York Magazine lists The Terminator (which hit theaters in October 1984) as playing there for a few more days with City Heat (which opened in early December) scheduled to be there as of January 25.

I am sad that its no longer a movie theater but at least the building is being used for something positive rather than continue sitting there empty being an eyesore.

As a child I saw Fantasia here on one of its re-releases. Seemed at the time a long drive from my home in Northport.

Is it still a soccer academy? How’s the interior?

Was this a GCC Theatre?

Scott for most of its Life The Brentwood was UATC . I don’t think General Cinemas had theaters in Long Island

Originally built by Prudential and probably made the transition to UA.
