The historic Bellmore Movies & The Showplace, which had been temporarily closed due to the pandemic, has reopened.
Bellmore Movies & The Showplace is Nassau County’s last single screen movie theatre. It was built in 1915 by a local Bellmore family and its website boasts that the theatre has survived two pandemics: the Spanish Flu of 1918 and now COVID-19. It shows mainstream and independent films and live shows, and has been host to the Long Island International Film Expo. To celebrate the reopening, it is currently offering a special of $6 per person before 6 p.m. midweek.
Now through June 10, the theatre is showing the family film, “Shepherd: The Story of a Jewish Dog,” the based-on-a true-story movie about a young boy and his dog attempting to escape a concentration camp during World War II. "Queen Bees," a romantic comedy starring Ellen Burstyn and James Caan, starts on Friday, June 11. The theatre folllows all NYS safety protocols.
The facility is also available for private rentals and screenings, including cast and crew screenings, birthday parties, and other events.
Bellmore Movies & The Showplace is located at 222 Pettit Avenue in Bellmore. For movie showtimes and additional information call the theatre at (516) 783-7200 or visit its website. For event inquiries, email email@example.com.
