I have the definitive word from an electrician who used to service the shopping center complex including the theatre. The original single screen space was divided up on a couple of occasions resulting in 6 auditoriums. When what used to be storage space for an adjacent business was relinquished, it was acquired by the theatre for two additional, small screening rooms just past the concession stand to the left. Next time I’m there I’ll determine the auditorium numbers (some combination of 4,5 and 6).

Just came back from the Mattituck. Theatres 4 and 5 are the ones carved from the former storage area.

This theatre was independent way before Cineplex Odeon. Please read robboeham comment about this theatre. Cineplex Odeon took over this theatre plus Sayville, Islip and Hampton Arts for a few years. Prior to the merger with Loews, went back independent. Se article and ad in pictures

Please update, the theatre opened in 1975 as a Twin, expanded to a triplex in 1983, five in 1985 and 8 in 1987 to the present number. I researched old Newsday’s online.

Opened on November 14th, 1973 as a twin cinema. No grand opening ad found, just regular listings in Newsday.

Cineplex Odeon took over this theatre on August 12, 1989 and ran it until Loews Cineplex merger. After the merger in late 1999 went back independent.
