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.

That’s the way it is. New theater in (Deer Park), old out. This one killed the Commack Twin and the Mayfair. Did have a longer life than the NA Brookhaven which only lasted eighteen years.

I went here a lot in the 90’s. It was the only multiplex in the area for many years. I think the Farmingdale multiplex at the old Grumman site and then the multiplex at the Deer Park Tanger outlets killed it.

All gone. Only a pile of dirt.

In re: the summary on the main page, it was demolished in 2013, not 2012. It was only demolished within the last 3 months.

See my April 7th comment. The last of it bit the dust that day. Now the phoenix (Lowes) is rising from the ashes.

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.
