The Glen Cove Cinemas is an attractive and well kept theater with comfortable auditoriums. Built by Cineplex, each screen has seating for over 200. Later operated by Loews, since 2005, it operated as an independent movie theatre, known as Glen Cove Theatres. It was closed in March 2013, but reopened around April 2014.

When the Cineplex Odeon Glen Cove Cinemas first opened in the early 1990s, I was the one responsible for getting its licenses. back then the mayor of Glen Cove was so happy to have a theater in town again, there were hardly any licenses that needed to be gotten. All I had to do was put up Occupancy Limit signs for the auditoriums. I am looking for Ray the original manager, who I’m quite certain eventually moved to the Atlanta area. Through the Loews Cineplex years, I was responsible for code compliance and i did visit there a couple of times. The only violations we ever got was for failure to shovel snow or break up ice fast enough after a storm on the path outside the theater.

That’s good news. Now all that remains is the Long Beach which has been shuttered since Super Storm Sandy.

Don’t know when it happened but Glen Cove has reopened according to the Movie TimeTable in Newsday. Since they were going to put up a new marquee it would be nice if someone could take a picture.

I have been here 3 times since it has reopened and it is a very nice place and cheaply priced, only $6 for matinees till 5 o'clock. I worry about their attendance too. My wife and me saw “The Other Woman” there opening week, 6 people 1st afternoon showing. We saw “Million Dollar Arm” there opening week, same first showing weekday, 2 people. Today I went by myself to “A Million Ways to Die in the West” and I was the only person there. I remember in their former life say up to 2012 they used to open later in the day I guess because of this. Yes I know when the kids are out of school it shoukd do better, but still it’s sad. Every time we go to the cinema in Malverne on a weekday it’s always packed, I guess a different audience. But if one goes to the Kew Gardens theater on a weekday in a much more populous area showing the same types of movies as Malverne, the attendances are quite sparse.

The absence of patrons is often the topic on the Long Island Theatres. Not all of them have made the conversion to digital which is not a good sign.

Rather strange but I thought I’d mention it here. This doesn’t usually happen but back to back times is unusual. Monday I went to A Walk Among the Tombstones in the AMC Fresh Meadows theater and since they were having sound difficulties they gave everyone in attendance a pass for a free movie. Now today at the Glen Cove theater I go the Maze Runner and the film freezes (!!!). Actually it was a 2 second clip repeating over and over. Anyway they fixed it and the woman who runs the concession stand tracked me down in the theater and gave me a free pass for a movie at any of their 4 cinemas. I mean this happened back to back visits at different theaters. Still sad about the attendance here. The Maze Runner, #1 this weekend with about 32 mil had only me as a customer at the 1:15 PM showing.

Was at Hampton Arts last night for the only evening screening of the new Jane Fonda film. 15 people. A number of seniors; only one popcorn sold. They haven’t gone digital and the kickstart program bombed. Keep reading about bad attendance. Long Island is sure to loose more venues.
