Correction to last note, it was not renovated as of yet but renos under new ownership is coming soon according to a staff member. The old auditorium 2 was split up into auds 2 & 3 (non-stadium seated). Auds 1 & 5 are stadium seated. Auds 2, 3 & 4 are not stadium seated. It is still a good movie going experience. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Prices are still cheap-$10, $7-matinees, $6-Wednesdays. Theater is still well kept. Worth coming back again. :)

I went past the movie theater today and it looks like it has been reopened. It’s still a 5plex. It has reopened in late December under new management. I don’t know if it’s still owned by JJ (owners of the Bellmore Playhouse) or the new owners of Seaford. The netsite is and they have a Facebook page. Please update the listing.

Please update your listing. The theater is now closed for renovations as of Oct. 23 of this year. Looks like this theater will be getting reclining seats as has Bellmore and Seaford nearby.

This theater is very noticeable to LIRR trains passing on the LIRR up above.

The Merrick Cinemas is a well kept nice theater. That photo looks like someone took it quick riding past on the train!

So we need to add a listing for Merrick Mall Cinema.

The current Merrick Theater is NOT a reincarnation of either the “Merrick Mall Cinema”, or the “Gables”. This is a totally new building (opened in 2002). It has four screens, but generally lists fives movies as they rotate on the weekend or day/nights. It is a great family place and a wonderful addition to town!

That could be the theatre but it reopened 2 more times for a short time. Once they tried porno but it only lasted a few weeks. I think it might have closed for good around 1985.

Is this theatre the Merrick Cinema five which opened in 2002? There was another Merrick theatre that opened in 1969 and closed in 1980.

Is this the theatre that used to be called Merrick Mall Cinema? (it was not in a mall ) That theatre opened and closed a few times finally closing for good in the mid 80’s. It had a long modern front and a great scope screen?
