News About This Theater

UA The Movies at Coram

The UA The Movies at Coram was built on the site of the Coram Drive-In. Located on Route 112, near Middle Country Road (Route 25), the UA The Movies at Coram opened on November 29, 1985 with 8-screens. It was equipped with 70mm & 35mm projection. It was expanded to 10-screen on April 13, 1990 and to 12-screens on May 20, 1994. It was closed on April 17, 2003, probably because of the new National Amusements Island 16 Cinema de Lux that NA opened this year in Holtsville, which also caused the closure of the NA Brookhaven Multiplex Cinema too.

UA hadn’t been maintaining it very well in its later years anyway.

The building sat vacant with a “For Sale or Lease” sign on it, and was deteriorating fast. The large sign marquee at the edge of the road stood empty, waiting for letters to movies that will never come again. It has been demolished.

hdtv267 – I was once told the main photos rotate, but I don’t think so. It has to do with the order in which they are uploaded. There is no way to designate a specific photos.

Must have been tiny auditoriums. This was not a large building.
