Grand Avenue Cinemas

Small shopping mall theatre was independant for many years taken over by Clearview in the late-1990’s and multiplexed. The theatres are tiny but have nice screens and stereo. In June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over as they took most Clearview locations. Bow-Tie closed the Grand Avenue Cinemas in November 2014, and it was taken over and reopened by an independent operator.

Grand Avenue usually plays 20th Century Fox and New Line like Lynbrook does and some Dreamworks and Disney. Rockville Centre and the Fantasy usually get films from Paramount, Universal and Warner Brothers and some Dreamworks and Disney films.

Grand Avenue could show the same films with the Regal Lynbrook Sixplex.

The Seating capacities are;
1. 46 SMART
2. 78 SMART
3, 89 SMART
4. 118 dts/DS
5. 123 dts/SMART
Exept for Screen 1, the seats are tight. They need to put new seats like Port Washington and the Chelsea Cinemas have

They recently added a nice new marquee out front on Grand Avenue, so people driving by will actually know there’s a theater there. Ed? We’re waiting…

Well, a couple of years ago Bow Tie took over this house from Clearview, and just a few weeks ago Bow Tie closed it.

But it just reopened under the auspices of the owners of several independent multiplexes, namely the Kew Gardens Cinemas, Cobble Hill Cinemas and Williamsburg Cinemas. (According to the box office cashier, anyway.)

They have a facebook page as the first step in promoting this place.

Good luck! Glad to see it open again.

Bow Tie did not take over all the Clearview locations. The Grand Avenue must be at least the fourth they’ve dropped, most recently the Babylon. This one has life after Bow Tie.

Didnt Bow Tie drop the 2 in Pennsylvania? The Bala and Anthony Wayne? Or were they dumped by cablevision?

Luckily the Grand Avenue and the Middlebrook Galleria were quickly reopened under new local (Grand Ave) and international (Middlebrook) independent owners.
