The Bellmore Theatre was opened on July 5, 1915, and this may be the oldest operating theatre on Long Island. It was one of the first theatres in the area and was originally a silent movie house. Almost it’s whole life it was as a second run and double feature house.
For many years it was operated by KB Theatres, a local chain. When they got rid of it, it spent two years showing off-beat foreign and independent films. The owners tried to run festivals that included 3-D and revivals. They then sold the theatre to the current owners who have restored the theatre and play first run engagements plus occasional family orientated stage shows.
In 2020 this is one of only two Long Island single screen movie houses, the other being in North Shore Towers.
