Located in the New Dorp district of Staten Island. The 1,150-seat Fox Theatre opened on April 7, 1966, with Disney’s “The Ugly Dachshund” & the animated feature “Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree”. It was operated by Fox Eastern Theatres and Joan Crawford was a special opening guest.
It was a huge modern theatre, great for seeing such epics as “The Blue Max”, “Grand Prix” and “You Only Live Twice”.
It was twinned on November 12, 1975, and was closed on September 9, 1988 to be expanded to 7-screen by Cineplex Odeon. But due to Chapter 11, this never happened. It reopened as the UA Hylan Plaza with 5-screens on July 1, 1993 with “Son in Law”, “The Firm”, “Sleepless in Seattle” and Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”.
Midnight shows included “Rocky Horror Picture Show”, vintage Marx Brothers films, “Monty Python & the Holy Grail” and soft core X-rated films. It was closed on January 17, 2017. Later in 2017 it was demolished together with the entire shopping center.
