Ridethetrain, I’m really enjoying all your opening day ads, reopening ads, etc. Do you think that you could also include the date of the ads in your postings?

The fifth screen opened September 26, 1997

Survived Covid.

Please update, became a twin in 1981, quad in 1996 and finally 5 screens in 1997. Theatre 5 was built on old store.

It looks like when Lynbrook opens next week, the two theatres are going to compete. Malverne business might hurt because of the more comfortable seating at Lynbrook. Won’t You Be My Neighbor will be play dating with each other.

Under development for five years and delayed by wartime restrictions, the Malverne Theatre finally opened on May 26th, 1947, with a single feature policy starting with the sub-run “It’s A Wonderful Life.” More details uploaded to the Photos Section.

According to the Fandango Movie Times there are five films starting around 1PM. I think Mike is correct on his assumption.

I’m pretty sure this theater has five screens, not six…

Is that a good thing?

This is my wife’s favorite theater. She goes to more movies now because of this place.

I saw “The Artist” there.

Saps, I’m happy that this theater is doing well enough to afford the changeover to digital. I’m not enamoured with the screen sizes, but I do feel it is vital for movie lovers (can hardly say “film lovers” anymore) that suburban art houses like this, and the one in Kew Gardens, survive and continue to thrive.

But they do give out photocopied reviews of every movie playing, and they have a weekly email newsletter one may subscribe to.

Speaking of which, please note this item in this week’s email:

“Please note the curtailed schedule while we transition to all digital from 35mm projection. We are proud to say that process is now complete at our Bellmore Cinema. We’ll always love film; however, digital is the wave of the future. Some people say it’s the tsunami of the future in the industry.”

Due to the inclement weather today my wife wanted to see “The Intouchables” and we went here. This was my first visit to this theater. Does not give out free posters like the Kew Gardens theater nor independent film news like the one in Manhassett.

There’s an underground bowling alley (San-Dee Lanes)right around the corner — in the Malverne’s basement?

This has been my favorite LI movie theater for the past 8 years .

The Malverne is a great local theater showing interesting films.
Too bad the Baskin Robbins next door closed a few years ago…

Creative programming in a cozy environment. Friendly staff and owners, too.
