Syosset Theater Grand Opening

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This one-time single screen Skouras Theatres house on Jericho Turnpike was just ¼ mile west of the more impressive Cinema 150.

Originally constructed as a modern single screener in around 1955, it was equipped with Todd-AO. Seating was provided in orchestra and balcony levels. Later taken over by United Artists.

It was triplexed many years back, and finally razed for retail space in the early-1990’s.

NYer…You know of runs in 35mm during the Syosset engagement (which itself was during the last 12 weeks of the 103 week Rivoli run)? Would it be possible for you to post any of that information here? It would be greatly appreciated.

Hi patryan6019 Are you asking which theaters on LI played ATWI80D while The Syosset played it roadshow Todd-AO? If so, according to an ad for the week of August 18, 1957, it played at The Cove in Glen Cove, The Shore in Huntington, The Regent in Bayshore and The Rialto in Patchogue. Does that help?

NYer…Thanks for the fast response. Are you certain the year is 57. I was not expecting that because it was the 44th week in release and had opened in not quite 50 cities, 9 of which were 35mm — all single city and theatre and strictly reserved seats.

patryan6019 You’re right August 18, 1958. Sorry.

NYer…Do you have ads for the Syosset opening, the 4 theatre engagement and perhaps the Skouras ad showing the 70 and 35mm runs together?

patryan6019 click on this site’s photo section up in the blue banner and all three ads should be there.

NYer…Outstanding. Thank you. Do you know if the 4 closed at the same time or which one ran the longest? (I’m not asking you to do a search for me, only if you already know).

The Cove & The Shore changed shows with Aldo Ray in “The Naked And The Dead” on August 27, 1958. The Rialto changed Sept 10, 1958 with Rock Hudson in “Twilight Of The Gods” & “Kathy O”. The Regent, sort of an anti Syosset, a clean functional nondescript neighborhood movie house day and dated with Syosset until Sept 17, 1958 when Gary Cooper in “Man Of The West” came in. All the while Syosset was Roadshow.
