Skouras Theatres opened the UA Theatre on August 24, 1965 with Rock Hudson in “A Very Special Favor”. It was named as part of the Lefrak City apartment complex. It stood on the north side of the Long Island Expressway. It was equipped with Dimension-150 projection equipment, located in the projection booth which was located at the rear of the orchestra seating, beneath the balcony. After years of running it, UA closed the theater.
The movie house temporarily reopened as an Indian cinema, but soon closed again. Finally Loews took over the lease and triplexed it. Soon it was running action, horror and comedy.
Eventually it closed, was gutted and converted to retail space. The frame of the marquee over the entrance, as well as the flat marquee that faced the Long Island Expressway are both still there, but have been covered by signs.
