Thursday marked the re-opening of Glen Cove Cinemas on School Street.

The theater is complete with new seats, six big screens, a second-floor children’s birthday party room, a new concession stand and a new arcade.

"It's a community that's been starving for a theater," Jay Levinson, a co-partner of the theater, told Newsday.  

“When the former movie theater operator closed the doors, it didn’t just affect our residents who traveled out of town to see a movie, it devastated a number of our local businesses that relied on the movie traffic,” Mayor Reginald Spinello said.

Levinson also operates movie theaters in Merrick and East Northport.

What do you think of the theater? Tell us in the comments.
