One of the largest of the Century Circuit Inc. chain built in parking lots of shopping malls in the 1950’s and 1960’s. The Roosevelt Field Theatres opened August 29, 1962 with Spencer Tracy in “Judgement at Nuremburg”. It had 1,700 seats. Century Theatres twinned it in late-1978 and later when they were acquired by RKO, it was made into a triple on April 15, 1983. On June 6, 1986 they expanded it to an 8-screen by chopping some theatres and creating some from other space and a total seating capacity of 2,300-seats. It was taken over by Cineplex-Odeon, and then acquired by Loews. Some of the houses are quite large and nice but others are small. Always played top notch first run, but now shares bookings with the newer AMC Loews Raceway 10 down the road.
It was closed for extensive renovations in March 2015. It reopened in November 2015.
