Our Movie Theater is Closed
When I moved to Sea Cliff in 1966 there were two movie theaters in Glen Cove, the next town over. There were both in business for a number of years, then one closed. Eventually the other closed, and so we had to drive to theaters in other towns. Then about ten or fifteen years ago, a new theater was built when a redevelopment project took place. We came here quite a bit because it was so close and had first run movies. But in the last year or two, every time we saw a movie, there were very few people in the theater. And a week or so ago, driving by the back of the theater, we realized that there were no movies listed. It's gone. The theater is closed. I am not sure why it failed - are people only watching movies at home online, or on DVD? The other theaters we go to seem pretty busy. It is a mystery.
