Great movies touch and inspire the soul of the viewer. Luckily for Long Islanders, there’s no shortage of movie theaters on our small nook of the universe. Yet the sheer number of venues beg a worthy guide. Best of L.I. voters thankfully provided such a map for us, leading film-goers to the very Best Movie Theater on Long Island.
Long Islanders Voted Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington the Best Movie Theater on Long Island!
Cinema Arts Centre
423 Park Ave.
What can be said about Cinema Arts Centre that hasn’t been already? At the film forefront with independent and foreign cinema, behind-the-scenes discussions and quirky film symposiums, CAC is a rare gem. With so many theaters trading integrity for stadium seating and blockbusters, CAC has remained the vanguard of respected cinema, inviting patrons not only to see films, but experience the world in which they exist. That’s why Press readers have voted it one of the Best of L.I. for half a decade.
