About Us

The Bellmore Movies & The Showplace was built in 1915 by a local family in Bellmore and constructed by builder Anthony Palermo. Traditionally movies back then were booked with a quick live vaudeville style act prior to the film which was the case for The Bellmore Movies as well.  From silent films complete with a piano player down front on the right side of the screen to talkies!! Theaters in surrounding towns have come and gone but our little single screen cinema survives! We can brag we have survived 2 Pandemics!  The Spanish Flu of 1918 and now the horrible Covid 19.

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 & Showplace remains the last single screen in Nassau County as an ongoing business.

The Stampfel Family took over operations of the cinema in March 1986 and look forward to continuing for the next 100 Years! In Addition to running the Bellmore Movies, The Stampfel Family also operate the Malverne Cinema & Art Center in Malverne, Long Island, New York.
