What’s the deal with Long Beach Cinemas? Is it ever coming back?

A reader just asked me of the status of Sandy-flooded Long Beach Cinemas, the only movie theater in town. The truth of the matter is this: I don’t know. There was, however, a Newsday article written one month after  the storm saying that it was coming back. Since then, the lobby has been gutted, but it doesn’t look like any other work has been done. If anybody has any new info, please let us know!!

Newsday, November 28th, 2012: Flooded Long Beach Cinemas to reopen

[quote]Long Beach Cinemas, ravaged by superstorm Sandy, will reopen, though when is unclear, the owner said Wednesday.

The seaside city’s only movie theater is also a linchpin of one of two commercial districts. It’s located at the busy intersection of East Park Avenue and Long Beach Road…….

“We will definitely reopen,” said Seth Pilevsky, managing director of Philips International, the Manhattan-based real estate company that purchased the movie house around 2000.

“We’re working with our insurance company,” he said. “I cannot tell you the timing of the opening, because I don’t know yet. But we intend to reopen.[/quote]

  1. BTW, people are picking up the boards from the boardwalk demolition and selling them on E-bay for $25.00 to $50.00 each..
    I see them all day long on National Blvd from my window.

  2. I live in the Ocean Club and from my window I see people picking up boards from the demolition and stacking them in their cars.
    I asked one of then why they are taking them and was told that they are selling them on E-Bay for $25.00 to $50.00 each as Hurricane Sandy Souvenirs. With stacks of boards like these this is your chance to become rich..
    They are getting $25.00 for a 6 inch piece and $50.00 for a 10 inch piece.
