UA Lynbrook 6

The last of the Calderone Theatres in Nassau County to remain in operation as a movie theater, the Lynbrook Theatre had lost all of its old charm. The 1,500-seat Lynbrook Theatre was opened prior to 1926 and was operated by the Calderone Theatre Corp. By 1931 it was operated by Fox Theatres. It was operated by Century Theaters in the 1940’s and 1950’s. In the early-1960’s it was known as the New Lynbrook Theatre when it was operated by Skouras Theatres. Over the years, it has been multiplexed into six shoebox theaters.

It fell into disrepair as it went neglected by the UA chain, but was taken over by Regal Cinemas in around 2002. It was closed in January 2016 and demolished in June 2016.

The Regal Lynbrook 13 and RPX was built on the site.

According to the Regal website the Lynbrook 13 and RPX will open in 2018. Originally the opening was to be this year.

The signage is coming along. The backlighting on the sort of upside down “L” shaped sign at the corner of Merrick and Hempstead was abnormally bright before they affixed the lettering and logo! Also, I know I’ve been remiss in not uploading demolition pics of the old UA building I took a couple of years back, but I went on a European vacation shortly thereafter and then moved (still in Lynbrook, only about 6 blocks away) and haven’t yet been able to set up my office space and computer so I can easily go through and edit the pics! I’ll get there, robboehm!

Mike, they totally leveled the old building. It would have been nice if they had incorporated the facade into the new as they did with a couple of reconstructed Broadway theaters. For whatever reasons the new is still under construction way past the Fall 2017 and March 2018 target dates, although they now have hiring ads.

Let’s be sure to keep posting stuff about the new theatre on this page just because it’s in the same geographical location.

I joke of course. Somebody should start a page for the new theatre.
