Island Cinemas

In defiance of the usual progression for many theater buildings, this theater was actually converted from a large A&P Supermarket in the late-1980’s or early-1990’s, instead of the typical progression where a theater gets converted to a store.

The eight-screen Movieland Cinema of Mastic was closed at the end of 2007, and a new seven-screen cinema with 725 seats opened on the site in March 2008, named Island Cinemas. By early-2019 it been expanded to nine-screens. It had closed by March 2021 and available ‘For Lease’.

What kind of store was the building before it became Island Cinemas?

I think its fadcade when it was a Movieworld look like the A & P supermarket.

It was definitely a supermarket (as was the current Hampton Bays). I believe both had been A & Ps.

It most definitely was an A&P Supermarket. I remember going there as a kid.

Probably just phased out because of Covid as is the case with other theatres.

10 screens on October 31st, 1997 the cheap stake owners bought no grand opening ad in Newsday.

At one time the owners were a group of lawyers. They added a couple of illegal screens. Go figure.

Remains of movies past still on the pylon.
