Viewing: Photo | Street View

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.

I worked at this theatre from 2001-2003, the actual Theatre count is 17 now since there was always plans for 17, but Loews could not get the Town to approve the extra theatres. Finally in late 2002, there were 2 very small theatres added to the count, they are located on the right wing of the theatre at the end of the wing.

In this 1975 ad it shows a Loews Stony Brook 2, I don’t find this theatre on CT?

Does anyone know where that theater Robert mentions was? Robert, perhaps you will add it?

Before the megaplex was built, Loews operated a triplex in the same shopping center. I believe it had always been a triplex so my guess is the #2 was referring to the actual theatre in the complex. I will add the listing for this theatre.

It used to be a Loews I believe.

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.

Next year it will house an IMAX screen.

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

SIIN01 on December 3, 2008 at 8:29 pm

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.
