markp… Thanks, but I desire more precise information. If anything, what interests me is how many screens did the Commack Multiplex have during the summer of 1992?
Coate, Ive seen many of your posts. I’m sorry I couldn’t provide exact dates. You do a great service to all of us CT readers.
Coate perhaps you could access the Movie Timetable in Newsday during that time period to make the determination.
Thank you, NYer!
nearly 35 years ago this year this theater opened.
Can anyone confirm, please, the screen count of the Commack Multiplex Cinemas on Christmas Day 1986 (preferably via newspaper research rather than memory)?
If you could get a hold of the Movie Timetable from Newsday for that date you could probably figure that out. Also, those were the days when theaters advertised so that might be evident in a Newssday ad.
Grand opening ad posted.
Site is now a Lowe’s Home store.
Please update, went to 12 screens on December 26, 1986, 13 screens on Ocotber 16, 1987 (one of the 512 split) and 15 on December 1, 1989
