UA Movies at Patchogue 13

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Patchogue 13 started it’s life as the Patchogue Drive-In on Sunrise Highway. Eventually, the drive-in finally closed, and they built the Patchogue 13 on it’s site in the 1980’s.

There were originally less screens in the multiplex, however, they cut a few theaters in half making it currently 13 screens. For the most part the Patchogue’s screens and theaters are fairly small, but had been fairly well kept.

It was closed and demolished in 2007.

I believe the Patchogue 13 is suffering a bit from the competition of many of the newer and more modern multiplexes now in the area that feature stadium seating, etc, which the Patchogue does not.

UA Movies at Patchogue 13 was closed by Regal Cinemas in 2007. Signage has been removed from the building and it is fenced off.

Does anyone know if the theater has been torn down yet?

Hi Bway-
I reckon uarules could give you a more accurate date, but I know the building has been razed: I’m guessing before Christmas 2007. The irony of it’s closing in September 2007: the land now sits totally undeveloped and vacant (probably a victim of the lackluster economy). I guess the owner is now looking for new town building permits: there’s a few of those “Public Meeting” signs in front of the property right now, on Sunrise Hwy.

Ahh, that’s too bad. Since you can’t see the theater from the street, I had a glimmer of hope that perhaps the theater was still back there, and now with the crappy economy there was a very small glimmer of hope they would reopen it as a theater again. I didn’t realize they took it down so quickly. I guess they did so there would be no chance whatsoever of a change in plans….

Contrary to the heading on this site the pylon is still there. It has now been covered by a fabric banner advertising Olney Vineyards developments. At 55 MPH that was all I could glean.

Correction, the name is OLC.NY. That stands for Orstein, Leyton Company, NY. They have a current property in Moriches. I believe they’re going to call this Bluepoint, which is a bit of a stretch.

I miss going to this place when I was a kid. :(

There hasn’t been any developing here and there might not be for a while. I’ve been there and seen a tent for a homeless person. There was little blue flags on one of the piles of concrete and yellow flags by the side where there are developments.

Aerial view uploaded. The dark roof portion is the indoor cinema and refreshment stand of the original All Weather Drive In. The white portion is the add on to create the multiplex.

The pylon is still up advertising the Vineyards, a gated community. However, the entry to the Vineyards is a bit west of the entrance to the former theater. The models at the Vineyards are now open for viewing.
