News About This Theater
Skouras Theatres opened the UA Theatre on August 24, 1965 with Rock Hudson in “A Very Special Favor”. It was named as part of the Lefrak City apartment complex. It stood on the north side of the Long Island Expressway. It was equipped with Dimension-150 projection equipment, located in the projection booth which was located at the rear of the orchestra seating, beneath the balcony. After years of running it, UA closed the theatre.
The movie house temporarily reopened as an Indian cinema screening Bollywood movies, but soon closed again. Finally Loews took over the lease and triplexed it on December 16, 1983. Soon it was running action, horror and comedy.
It was closed on June 18, 1987 and was gutted and converted to retail space. The frame of the marquee over the entrance, as well as the flat marquee that faced the Long Island Expressway are both still there, but have been covered by signs.
