Rockville Centre Cinema

Opened on July 9, 1969 with Bob Hope in “How to Commit Marriage” showing on both screens. This cinema had a great marquee as long as the whole front of the building. This was one of the real early twins that had not only a wall down the middle of the cinema, but also in the lobby. You could not switch auditoriums because each side had its own ticket booth, bathrooms and concession stand. The lobby is now one again. The theater closed on January 19, 2006, and after years standing empty, it was demolished in May 2013.

Orlando, I’m confused. Postings in 2013 indicated the building had been demolished then?

Building is long gone. New one is arising.

Well, last year is a lot longer ago than “currently being demolished” as posted on 2/4/14. It seems that the empty space was there for months before new construction started.

Also, uploaded photos of both screens. The bad thing watching matinees at this theatre, anytime someone open the door, you would get a glare.
