Elwood Cinemas

The Elwood Cinema was opened in the 1960’s as a single screen cinema. It was twinned in 1971. In 2001 it was reconstructed into a quad cinema. The Elwood Cinemas is an independent family owned cinema. In September/October 2013, new seats were installed in all 4 auditoriums.

Re: Moviegoer on Dec 19, 2006:

I have been to several birthday parties here with my daughter. The staff does a very nice job making sure all the kids have a good time. If you are interested in a movie party, you should definitely consider Elwood Cinema.

BTW – This is easily the nicest theatre in the area. It should definitely be your first choice for any trip to the movies.

CPA Eric = Elwood Cinema owner

Regardless, I agree with CPA Eric. The Elwood is our first choice when going to the movies.

Love the fact The Commack Multiplex couldn’t kill it, as it did the Deer Park and Brentwood. Good for them.

I went to a party there yesterday for a six year old to see Madagascar 2. My kids range in age from 3 to 8, and they all had a great time, as did the birthday boy.

The theater is a quad, it reminded me of the theaters I’d go to as a kid in the days before the Multiplex. I loved the fact that the theater was exclusively for the party. All of the kids had a fantastic time, as their parents. I picked up a flier on my way out, and I think the party was very well priced for what you receive. I’ll be bringing my three back to see Bolt next weekend, even though the theater is a bit far for us. It’s much more family-friendly than the multiplex, and we really had a great time!

Anyone have pictures of Elwood Cinema as a single theater???

Bloop on March 7, 2011 at 12:48 am

I honestly don’t think it looked that much different; it’s pretty generic ? (dsslave- are you friends with me on Facebook , and how are you doing?)

The only difference in the appearance of the facade as a single screen, twin or quad are the designation “twin” or “quad” and the style of lettering is still the same. I would venture that the word “elwood” is the original and the adds on were made to match.

I’ve seen a bunch of you responding to “moviegoer”’s comment from 12/19/06. I’m moviegoer and this is my first post on this theater. The 12/19/06 post that you guys have responded to seems to be attributed to someone called “stlogije.” Enough people have responded to “moviegoer” that I must assume that post was previously erroneously attributed to me due to some Cinema Treasures technical glitch.

We had my son’s fifth birthday there and it was a blast. The staff was phenomenal and even the party run a little longer than it should have. It’s also the only theater that I know of that charges under $10 for first-run fare. Great, great theater.
