A Terrible Loss

I am a resident of East Quogue and a frequenter of the Regal Movie Theater in Hampton Bays. My husband, daughter, granddaughter and I regularly enjoy movies at the theater.

A movie theater is a gathering place for a community, a place to be entertained and refreshed. We live in stressful times, and we can all use a good laugh or cry at the movies. So I was particularly upset to hear that the movie theater might be leased to CVS instead of to the Regal Cinemas [“Southampton Town Planning Board Takes Early Look At Proposal For CVS In Hampton Bays Movie Theater Space,” 27east.com, May 29].

We already have a CVS in Southampton and Westhampton, as well as a Rite Aid in Hampton Bays. We do not need another chain drugstore in Hampton Bays.

But we do need our movie theater.

I urge Southampton Town to reject the offer from CVS to open in the space now rented to Regal Cinemas. It would be a terrible loss for our community.
