There are no other movie theaters in Hampton Bays.

Although I’ve gone to this theater every summer since it opened, it is because of this theater that United Artists decided to close the single-screen Westhampton Beach theater in 1996 when it was under their ownership. That was my favorite movie theater. It was closed, renovated and re-opened as a performing arts theatre.

There was previously an old theatre called the Bay. Newsday showed a picture of it within the past few years. I don’t remember if they gave a location. I’ll have to try and get info. Had I had a computer then I would have been all over it and posted it.

I am not sure if that is the same theater. It should be added if it isn’t.

This is a reverse situation. Site used to be a supermarket. Then became a theatre (much like the theater in Mastic).

Please update, total seats 979 based on Regal/Fandango ticketing websites.

Did reopen after Covid. During Covid there had been discussion about the theatre becoming a CVS. Heard nothing lately. When CVS was going to acquire the Lindenhurst Theatre site it took a couple of years. Will history repeat itself?

CVS discussion still active If it closes that would leave the East End with only the Easthampton, Sag Harbor and Mattituck venues.

The CVS takeover is dragging on while studies are being taken about the impact, yada, yada. I was told the owner had offered Regal a new lease at a lesser rate but was turned down. In the meantime they are just operating the theatre on a month to month basis. Regal is in trouble and is closing theatres right and left. I can see why they didn’t want to negotiate a new lease. They were supposed to take over the old Walmart sites in Massapequa Park and Riverhead but backed out of those.

I recall that when CVS wanted to take over the site of the shuttered Lindenhurst Theatre there was also a long period of studies, negotiations, etc.. And that was a free standing building!
