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. It was closed due to Covid-19 restrictions in October 2020. It was due to reopen in May 2022, but by August 2022 this had not happened.

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.

Theater is now permanently closed as of 10/20 per Newsday. The owner could not renew the lease of this theater. Another casualty of this pandemic.

I’m sure the handwriting was on the wall for the Elwood anyway when the nearby Huntington Plaza opened.

Finally closed . I cannot believe it lasted for this long! It proves one thing : Location , Location , Location. I guess Locals that did not want to drive to Huntington Village for a movie? I also think the Commack MultiPlex closing - gave Elwood another decade or so , of life. And as I can see; they played up that “kiddie party” thing too.

In May 2022 the owner said he would reopen. This has not yet happened.

please list Closed, still hasn’t reopened. The owners will be the same as South Bay

ridethetrain owners the same as South Bay? It’s doomed. South Bay has been “under renovation” since 2017.
