The Bellmore Movies & The Showplace is believed to have been built in and around 1908 by a local family in Bellmore. Traditionally movies were booked with a short live act which was the case for The Bellmore Movies. Theatres in surrounding towns have come and gone but our little single screen cinema survives!
Today the Bellmore Movies & The Showplace finds itself offering Mainstream Films, Independent Films and Live Shows ranging from Plays, to Comedy acts to Recitals, film festivals and almost anything else you can think of. The Bellmore Movies remains the last single screen in Nassau County as an ongoing business.
The Stampfel Family took over operations of the cinema in March of 1986 and look forward to continuing it success for the next 100 Years! In Addition to running the Bellmore Movies, The Stampfel Family also operate the Malverne Cinema & Art Center in Malverne and The North Shore Towers Cinema in Floral Park, New York
