The booth runs well, not too bad of equipment.

This theater has all 6 films playing all starting their shows at 7 pm. How can a theater survive just showing 1 show a day on weekdays especially a multiplex?

This theater doesn’t do well because it’s as run down as the town it’s in the heart of. Most recent thing I recall seeing here was Spongebob Squarepants Movie, and we had to move our small party three times because of broken seats. Beyond that, the seats are small and crowded, everything from lobby to aisle carpeting was obviously worn and stained, and one of the speakers buzzed constantly. My daughter was there for a Madagascar birthday party last June, and it didn’t look any better.

Minor correction to an earlier comment: GC’s other theaters closed in the late 70’s, not early. See my comments on both Town and Glen Theaters for more.

So it’s not part of the Loews theater chain now…how is this theater holding up? A big deal was made when it opened around 1990 as part of the re-emergence of Glen Cove’s downtown area.

The theatre is no longer part of the Loews theatre chain. It is now an independent. Its booking service is Lesser.

I was here back in (I think) 1993 to see the Macauley Culkin flick “The Good Son”. The theater was very nice and the auditorium I saw this at was fairly big. Not sure how it is now.

Upon it’s opening, there was a big deal made about it being Glen Cove’s first movie theater to open since the 60’s. There hadn’t been one in the city since the early 70’s. A strange kind of suburban/urban blight had hit Glen Cove in the 70’s rendering it’s downtown somewhat seedy (surprisingly for a LI North Shore community).

I’m not surprised, as longislandmovies notes, that the grosses were not very good. I think it’s a number of factors. First, Glen Cove is way off the beaten track on LI. Secondly, the areas surrounding the city are pretty wealthy and these people probably have home theaters that are grander than some of the multiplexes. It’s probably not a big movie going area.

Just my opinion…

Cineplex built this during their construction frenzy. This is one of the only Nassau County theatres I have never been to.
