AMC Loews Roosevelt Field 8

Viewing: Photo | Street View

One of the largest of the Century Theaters chain built in parking lots of shopping malls in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Century Theaters twinned it and later when they were aquired by RKO, it was made into a quad. Later Cineplex Odeon made it an eight-plex by chopping some theatres and creating some from other space. Some of the houses are quite large and nice but others are small. Always played top notch first run, but now shares bookings with the newer AMC Loews Raceway 10 down the road.

It was closed for extensive renovations in March 2015 and is set to reopen in November 2015.

Haven’t been in the area for years but I remember thinking it odd that the theatre had two box offices. Handy in view of all the chopping up.

I remember seeing “Avatar” and “The Pirates! Band of Misifits” there.

Probably will be part of the $600 million reseating project mentioned on the CT home page.
