News About This Theater
- Nov 10, 2013 — Lindenhurst Theatre to make way for CVS
This theatre opened on December 25, 1948 with Van Heflin in “Tap Roots”, under the Prudential Theatre Circuit, a Long Island exhibitor. It has 625 seats on the main floor and 140 in the loge.
It was taken over by UA Theatres in 1968 and was a first run house during this time. In the 1980’s and 1990’s, its price policy was as a reduced price theatre. In 1998, UA sold the theatre to 5 Star Cinemas which did some repairs but not to the falling apart seats and failed to keep the theatre clean.
This popular movie house served the area for 54 years, and closed on Thursday July 18, 2002 with “Sum of All Fears”.
“I am in communications with the village and Chamber of Commerce to clean up and re-seat the theatre that has gotten a bad rap.” – Orlando Lopes
Sadly, it was demolished in February 2014.
