UA Lynbrook 6

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The last of the Calderone Theaters in Nassau County to remain in operation as a movie theater, the Lynbrook Theatre has lost all of its old charm. 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.

Is Regal still going to operate this theater or another theater chain? Looking at the pictures it looked like it really was time to get a new theater. What a shame they took and chopped that theater up. I saw the photo where they had the roadshow engagement of Camelot in 70MM

Still standing? No demolition as yet?

There is paper covering the front doors and a “Asbestos abatement” notice taped to the glass. There is an opening in the paper and I looked and saw dozens of theater seats piled in the lobby.

The adjacent parking lot is closed and there was a dumpster and a crane next to the theater; a worker there said they were removing the stage house roof (although he didn’t call it that…lol)

The beginning of the end.

Photos of the “progress” would be appreciated…

Can anyone “swipe” some memorabilia?

There is now a construction fence around the entire building and adjacent parking lot.

On the Regal theaters website , under grand openings there a total of 5 venues in the NYC metro area . I wonder if all of them will open in the next 2 years

I’ve uploaded another photo of the monstrosity which will replace the Lynbrook. It has all the appeal of an LA Fitness.
