This was one of Long Island’s first multiplexes. It opened in 1973, shortly after the Sunrise Mall opened. United Artists signed a twenty year lease. The box office was originally in front of the theatre. When it stated getting congested, they moved it to the center of the mall where there was plenty of room. It opened originally with five screens, and in 1977, expanded to seven screens, with auditorium 6 housing the new Dolby Stereo CP-50 processor with surround sound. In February 1984, they added two more screens.
The theatre closed in 1999, shortly after United Artists opened the new Farmingdale tenplex, and after the lease had expired.
