Loews South Shore Mall Twin.....1986

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1967 by Loews, the old South Shore Mall Theater in Bayshore shut its doors in the mid-1990’s. Once a single screener, a wall was installed down the middle to convert this to a twin.

The lobby was converted into a leather store, while the theater itself remained completely intact behind a gated area. The theatre was demolished in February 2014 to allow for improvements to the mall.

Is there a way to suggest new info for the overview blurb? The theater was torn down a few years ago to make room for the new Sears building at that end of the mall. Incidentally, I never was in this when it was a single-screen. As a two-screener I can remember seeing Batman here in 1989 and I think I might have alos seen Start Trek III here.

Trying to pin point just when this theater closed. I’ve been using New York Magazine listings to do that for some other local theaters. Unfortunately, sometime in 1994, the Magazine apparently stopped listing shows for Long Island. In June 1994, this was showing The Crow and Maverick. By November 1994 the magazine had stopped listing LI theaters.

Wow. I moved to Bay Shore in 2005 and never got to see the space that is shown in the picture. Unfortunately all I and the rest of the area get to see is a ugly green baricade. The theatre was just the beginning to many other closings at the mall.

This looks like the Howard Theatre in Lebanon Pennsylvania. It too started out as a single screen and was twinned. The Howard was demolished in the early 2000’s.

It closed late December 1997, a week after Titanic opened.

This building is still standing, “Condemned” notices posted Nov, 2013. Building is completely fenced with the west wall facing mall with L O E W ‘ S block neon name in their original position since they were put up in 1967, (Painted Over). Over 6 years ago, mall management said it would be demolished. That’s some “Coming Soon”.
