AMC Stony Brook 17

The Stony Brook was one of the first in the wave of the more deluxe multiplexes built. It was opened December 23, 1998 by Loew’s. In January 2006 it was taken over by AMC.

It has been a very well kept theater.

This theatre was constructed and opened for operation as a Loews Theatre on December 23rd, 1998. This theatre did originally open as a 15 screen theatre. Shortly after National Amusements opened their Holstville location (Island 16 De Lux) Loews decided to add seats to 2 auditoriums that were already built during original construction. This upgrade (renovation) ensured Loews operated the largest theatre (screens)in Suffolk County. Which is still the case today. This building is currently owned and operated by AMC Theatres following AMC’s merger with Loews which took place in January 2006. If anyone has questions about this building please ask in post, I worked in this building for it’s first 10 years in operation.

Did they cut two of their theaters in half to go from 15 to 17?

No they didn’t change any existing auditoriums. The building was originally constructed with 17 auditoriums 2 of which were never furnished. They were used for dry storage such as maintenance items. They then added seats to these 2 “rooms” changing the theatre to a 17plex.

My new house is not far from this theatre. When will they be adding the reclining seats for this theatre.

Remember the day you just went to a movie? Now they have all these bells and whistles and charge you an arm and a leg.

The recliners are among the worse “innovation” that chains are adding to their facilities. I avoid them like the plague. They decrease the seating and increase the cost of attending. If I had my dithers there would be no food allowed.

The theater is now listed on the AMC website as the AMC Stony Brook 17.
