UA East Hampton 5

Built on the site of the Edwards Theatre, which had been destroyed by fire the previous year, Prudential’s East Hampton Theatre debuted on Tuesday, August 3, 1965 to a full house of 900. Proceeds from opening night were donated to the East Hampton Ladies' Village Improvement Society. The new theatre was fully air conditioned, had a large CinemaScope screen and seated approximately one third of it’s patrons in a loge.

The building of the theatre was delayed initially by Prudential’s consideration of building outside the village. Then, when the decision was made to use the Edwards site, bids for construction were deemed too high. Plans had to be revised to keep costs down and also to conform to the Village request for more of a setback from the sidewalk. It was also necessary to get a ruling from the Village Board on whether a marquee could overhang the sidewalk.

On May 26, 1976 it was triplexed. On May 18, 1979 it became a quad and a 5th screen was added on May 22, 1981. Under subsequent United Artist’s management in the late-1990’s a 6th screen was added. Regal is the current management corporation and it now operates with 5-screens.

Columbia Pictures donated the opening night film, “The Finest Hours”, based on the life of Winston Churchill. It was the first time it was shown on Long Island.

Hugh Jackman went to see The Wolverine there and tweeted a pic of himself there. Pretty sweet!
