Douglaston, NY: Movie World Cinemas Closing in July 2018

Posted on Monday, June 25th, 2018 10:39 AM

The Movie World Cinemas in Douglaston, New York will be closing its doors in early July 2018, according to an article published recently in the Queens Chronicle:

A beloved small business in Douglaston will officially bite the dust next month.

According to MovieWorld owner Russell Levinson, his cinema will “probably” be showing films for the last time on Monday, July 2. The business, which first opened in 1983 and once closed for a brief period in 2008, will be moved out of the Douglaston Plaza Shopping Center by the end of July’s first week.

In MovieWorld’s lease with the shopping center’s owner, there is a buyout clause. The plan for Lowe’s Home Improvement to move into the old Macy’s space at the commercial center also has it taking over space on the property’s lower level where the cinema is.

Levinson told the Chronicle he’s searching for a new space to put MovieWorld. But because the business can’t afford to set up a movie theater at a property where there hasn’t been an existing one, he said finding a new site hasn’t been easy.

“We love what we do, we love our customers and hopefully we’ll be able to find something close,” Levinson said. “If not, then we’ll do the same thing we do somewhere else.”

When it closes, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the North Shore Tower Cinemas and the Bow Tie Squire Cinemas.
