Regal Ronkonkoma Stadium 9

The Regal Ronkonkoma was the first stadium seating multiplex in the area. It was actually quite state-of-the-art when built, when stadium seating was still a novelty.

Although now seems a bit older compared to the new wave of deluxe cinema multiplexes recently opening, it is still a nice place to see a movie.

It was converted very early on from Hoyts Cinemas to Regal Cinemas.

Here’s a satelite image of the Regal. It must have been taken early in the morning as the lot is empty!

I was surprised when this theatre opened because the area had such a poor history of theatre support for the Ronkonkoma, Jerry Lewis (later Lakeside Cinema) and College Plaza twins. And it’s exterior has to be the most unattractive of all the multiplexes.

According to this blog item with a picture, an unconventional pastor is looking to hold church services at this theater: View link.

It’s not uncommon for services at movie theatres. I believe they’re still doing it in Mastic.

They also held church services on Sundays at the former Patchogue Multiplex untill it closed. It’s a good way for extra money, and the church services are usually held in the morning before the movie theater opens anyway.

I went here for the first time yesterday. Very surprised at how nice it is. Does anyone know if this theatre is profitable? The area is kinda dingy and only a few people there.

Don’t know why it was built in the first place. There have been so many theaters in the general vicinity which have not survived: Ronkonkoma, Lakeside Cinema, College Plaza Twins, Patchogue Multiplex.

Wow, a whole 728 seats. In the day most single screen theaters had more than that.
