Oceanside Twin

The Oceanside Theatre was opened on October 24, 1956 with Gregory Peck in “Moby Dick”. By 1962 it was operated by Associated Independent Theatres Inc. chain. This Long Island neighborhood house managed to survive playing mostly second run but infrequently, first run engagements as well. It was twinned on March 19, 1982. The Oceanside Twin suffered heavy smoke and water damage from a fire at a nearby vacant supermarket in November 2005. The theater was closed and demolished in late-2007.

Sadly a new CVS has gone up in its place. And just east of the old place is a new supermarket. I was able to see one of the last movies ever played there. Farenheit 911 by Michael Moore. I think that was in 04 or 05

It’s a Walgreens. And there’s no sign that there ever was a theater there.

Someone is actually talking about CUE MARKS,ask an 18 year old projectionist at your local 20 plex about them.Automation sounds great,but i knew a lot of operators that lost jobs in the late 70’s having shown movies since the 30’s in some cases,but that is business,isn’t it.The Human cost,out the door.

Its amazing that there are no movie theaters in Oceanside .

A drug store and supermarket have been built on the former site.

In its last decade (or more) the Oceanside Twin was poorly maintained, in contrast to the very good Malverne Cinema, which shares the same owners.

I used to visit this theater a lot with my parents back in 1992 and 1993.

We used to see a lot of Bollywood films here and, while the movies themselves were not particularly memorable, the theater was a very peaceful place to sit back and relax.

I do remember seeing posters on the walls for various art house films, including “Howard’s End” and “A River Runs Through It,” but I don’t recall them actually playing here.

This theatre was mostly mainstream and 2nd run films. They never showed bollywood films, this operated by the Stamfeld who operated Malverne and the Park Avenue Twin, now known as Long Beach Cinema 4
