Commack Cinemas was the second multiplex built on Long Island by National Amusements, and located off the Long Island Expressway. It opened on October 28, 1983 with ten screens. Four screens with 512 seats and the other six with 364 seats. The theatre then added two 226 seat houses, split one of the 512-seaters in half, then added two 250 seaters for the current total of fifteen.

The Commack Multiplex Cinemas was closed on September 25, 2011. It was demolished in early-2013.

Too bad it’s not a Loew’s.

I find it really interesting when a 15 screen multiplex is bulldozed, most newer multiplexes aren’t much more than 15 screens. What would make it more interesting is if they bulldozed it to build a single screen D-I.

The new Lowes on the site is pretty far along already.

So they are building a bigger and better theater in it’s place?

Lowes not Loews. Really shaping up but probably won’t be open until after the first of the year.

There was also a Loews Theatre planned for this area that was never built-

Boxoffice Magazine December 1982 New York

Loews Theatres confirmed that it has reached an agreement in principle with the Arlona Company, operators of the Mayfair Shopping Center located on Jericho Turnpike approximately one half mile east of Sunken Meadow Parkway in Commack, Long Island, for the construction of a six-auditorium theatre within the center.

The new theatre will be adjacent to the Gimbels department store and will have a combined seating capacity of approximately 3,000. Extensive additional parking is being added to the already huge parking area.

I wonder what was to become of the theater already in that shopping center, i.e., AIT’s Mayfair which apparently lasted until 1984.

It probably would have been re-purposed for retail like the original Loews Bay Terrace in Queens.

Please see my comment on the Mayfair site of 6/30/13. Walking around the back of the center one sees common structural elements of a theater. I believe the site is now a Chinese Restaurant.
