News About This Theater
This was one of the Century Circuit Inc. chains' premiere Long Island theaters. The 1,683-seat Green Acres Cinema was opened on September 15, 1961 with Clark Gable in “Gone With the Wind”. It always played big movies and I remember seeing “The Towering Inferno” here in 70mm. Century Circuit Inc. first cut it up to three screens on December 14, 1983. On June 22, 1988 it became a sixplex.
RKO and later Cineplex had stiff competition here because National Amusements built the Sunrise Sixplex which was up to 25 screens when it closed on January 19, 2015. National Amusements eventually acquired the Green Acres Cinemas in 1991 and booked the more upscale product here.
The 1,471-seat Green Acres Cinemas was closed on September 18, 2011, and was demolished in May-June 2012.
