Grand Avenue Cinemas

Small shopping mall theatre was opened on October 3, 1965. An independent for many years it was twinned by GG Theatres on June 24 1983. In 1996 it was taken over by Clearview and on February 19, 1999 it was multiplexed into five screens. The theatres are tiny but have nice screens and stereo. In June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over as they took most Clearview locations. Bow-Tie closed the Grand Avenue Cinemas in November 2014, and it was taken over and reopened by an independent operator. It was closed on March 20, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. By 2022 it was occupied by a 99c discount store.

Please update, Grand Avenue has been closed since March 2020 when covid-19 started. Their a handful of indie screens in Nassau/Suffolk that hasn’t open yet. As of today, out of 20 independent theatres in Long Island that hasn’t open. Only Malverne, Bellmore Movie, Bellmore Playhouse and PJ Cinemas are the only indies that reopen.

ridethetrain of the “open” theatres you mentioned only the Bellmore Playhouse is. The only other “indie” I found to be open in Nassau County is the Manhasset. The Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center is just opening for selected films but not yet for live entertainment.

When did Manhasset reopen, don’t see a website at robboehm. It hard keeping up with some theatres, showtimes not on fandango and newspapers don’t put showclocks in. does Manhasset have a website.

As tiny as the auditoriums were here they were always immaculate and well maintained.

So sad one of the last of the old pre-multiplex Long Island theaters
