AMC Levittown 10 Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

One of Nassau’s premier theaters since the early-1980’s. Located in a parking lot of the Nassau Mall, although the two were essentially unrelated. I believe this was expanded in the early-1990’s, possibly from 4 to 6 to 8 screens. It has since been increased to 10 screens. I recall the lobby was fairly large, with video games. Haven’t been there in at least 10 years – I wonder if it’s still as big for the high school and college-age crowds.

Greeting All!

I’m sorry if it appears that I’m turning this review section into my own private blog. I just wanted to get people updated on what’s happening over in Levittown. I was told that the lighting problem in our theatre #6 is not going to be fixed any time in the near future. AMC does not feel that the lighting issue is a high priority. AMC told the House Manager that as long as the projectionist can trigger the house lights by flipping a switch in a circit breaker box and the epmloyees can trigger the cleaning/work lights by a switch hidden in the theatre, AMC is happy. This really burns my arse. I’m sorry I don’t have better news.

Regards,
Nobody U. Know

This was one of the few theatres to get involved with the Interfilm experiment in 1995.

KingBiscuits,

About 2006, me and a guy from AMC gutted the entire Interfilm cabinet. It had four (4) Pioneer LD-V8000 laserdisc players inside of it. He took one and I acquired three. Sold two and kept one for myself. At the time I got it, the motor that spins the disc only had 880 hours used of the total 10,000 hour lifespan (Mean Time Between Failures). That’s less than 1% of the total lifespan of the motor. It’s just too bad that I couldn’t get hold of the laserdiscs. They vanished years before we cannibalized the unit. I did manage to acquire the software CD-ROM for Ride for Your Life. I contains a customized install of Win 95 and some of the graphics that were shown at the bottom of the screen. They’re uncompressed Windows BMP’s.

Take good care,
Bill N.

God, I haven’t been to this venue in nearly 20 years. How’s she holding up?

I saw my first movie here in 1985 – “Santa Claus: The Movie,” starring Dudley Moore and John Lithgow. At the time, they lobby still had the giant paintings of old movie stars – John Wayne, etc. I would love to see photos of that.

Years later, I worked at this theater as an usher/concession/ticket seller. It was a great experience. I once got into a conversation with the projectionist, and asked him what his favorite movie they ever screened there was. He said “MASH.”

The theater has been renovated with new reclining seats as of Feb of this year. All the marquees to each of the 10 theaters is computerized. Bathrooms have also been renovated. Everything has AMC signage except the front marquee which shows Loews. Regular admission is now $11.49 and you need to reserve your seats. You should see for yourself. It was long overdue for renovations. This is the 3rd theater in LI with reclining seats-Broadway Multiplex and Regal Ronkonkoma are the other 2 and AMC Roosevelt Field is next. It was an awesome experience coming to this theater and me and my friends are doing this again. One of my favorite theaters in Nassau County.

Re the overview. If you look at the photos section the theater began life as a Quad. How they got up to ten is another story. But prior to Loew’s getting involved the sign on the property, for more than a year, said that an Imperial Twin Theater was coming. Other than margarine the name Imperial means nothing to me.
