More About The Space at Westbury
The Space was born with a different name on November 10, 1927 as The Westbury Movie Theater. The Westbury Movie Theater opened its doors to an audience that awed at the beauty of its Tudor style inspired auditorium. The feature for opening night was Hula starring Clara Bow. The Westbury Theatre was one of six theaters built by Salvatore Calderone in Nassau County, Long Island.
The theater succeeded as a single screen house until it was twinned in the late 1970s. As patronage decreased, the theater closed its doors. Over ten years ago Cyrus Hakakian and his partners saved the Westbury Theater from demolition. After viewing the stunning space, he was determined to preserve the magnificence of the original theater while repurposing the facility to accommodate all aspects of contemporary entertainment. With the installation of the state of the art lighting and sound systems, combined with the flexible seating plans, the Westbury Theater has entered a new chapter of its illustrious history as The Space at Westbury. You can feel the magic the moment the audience sees the spectacular LED marquee enhancing the outstanding new facade. A graceful tower provides downtown Westbury with an architectural landmark as theatrical glamour returns to Post Avenue. The excitement extends to the theaters south side on Winthrop Street with a new double story valet grand entrance. As the audience views its soaring ceiling and fabulous chandelier; it is apparent that every detail has been consider to make a visit to The Space at Westbury a most memorable experience.
