News About This Theater

September 12, 2011

Commack Cinemas was the second multiplex built on Long Island by National Amusements, and located off the Long Island Expressway. It opened on October 28, 1983 with ten screens. Four screens with 512 seats and the other six with 364 seats. The theatre then added two 226 seat houses, split one of the 512-seaters in half, then added two 250 seaters for the current total of fifteen.

The Commack Multiplex Cinemas was closed on September 25, 2011. It was demolished in early-2013.

markp… Thanks, but I desire more precise information. If anything, what interests me is how many screens did the Commack Multiplex have during the summer of 1992?

Coate, Ive seen many of your posts. I’m sorry I couldn’t provide exact dates. You do a great service to all of us CT readers.

Coate perhaps you could access the Movie Timetable in Newsday during that time period to make the determination.

Can anyone confirm, please, the screen count of the Commack Multiplex Cinemas on Christmas Day 1986 (preferably via newspaper research rather than memory)?

If you could get a hold of the Movie Timetable from Newsday for that date you could probably figure that out. Also, those were the days when theaters advertised so that might be evident in a Newssday ad.
