PORT WASHINGTON, NY — Clearview Cinemas has closed the six-screen Soundview Cinemas in the Soundview Marketplace. Clearview had been operating the theater since acquiring it in the late 1990’s.

“It’s disconcerting,” said Rina Smith, who grew up in Port Washington. “ I like the movie theater and it’s been here a long time. Something has to be done with the landlords in Port Washington. Rents are too high.”

Her husband Peter Smith will miss it, too.

“It is one of the cleanest movie theaters in the area,” he said. “This is one of the original great movie theaters.”

There is more in the Port Washington Patch.

I’ve been there a few times and ironically the last film my wife and I saw there was Going the Distance on Labor Day. This is the film they state was also the last one to play there. It’s sad, it’s near great views of the water and beside a major supermarket. I think there used to be a Blockbuster there that went out of business too.
