This is very discouraging this Theatre has not reopened. It was a really good place to go see Movies a very nice independent theater in Islip New York. Friendly staff good popcorn I hope it reopens again soon
This cinema has been permanently closed. Owners of the property have applied for a zoning change and a permit to convert the structure to apartments and retail space.
Joe- Probably just as well. The theatre wasn’t air conditioned and there was some sort of remediation which needed to be done which would have cost $150,000.00.
