All About Our Parties!



Elwood Cinemas is especially proud of the birthday party package we can offer to our customers.  We are centrally located in beautiful downtown Elwood, which makes us easy to get to; our theatres are comfortable, clean and safe; and the cost of our party is reasonably priced in comparison to other birthday packages offered throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties.

Our goal is to make your child’s birthday experience both enjoyable and memorable for years to come.  It is a fact that not only do the children enjoy themselves, but the parents do as well.


Our friendly hostess staff is here to make your party a success!

Here is what you need to do to get started


Contact our main office to secure a party date.  That telephone number is 516-485-1525.  You will be advised of what movies are playing at the time you want your movie party and what movie is age appropriate.

If we don’t have a movie you like, you have the option of bringing in your own DVD for the birthday party (except Disney).   You will be asked to come down to our theatre to drop off a $100.00 cash deposit.  Once you have done so, Elwood takes care of you from there.


Elwood Cinemas will call you the day before your party to go over all the party details, i.e., head count of children/parents, drink selection, we check the spelling of your child’s name for the marquee, we confirm your movie choice and whether you have decided on ordering pizza for the party.

If pizza is desired for the party, we are proud to partner with Mozzarella’s, which is located on Jericho Turnpike near our theatre.   We call that order in the night before your party.

An alternative food choice could be from the McDonald’s East Northport store.  They have reduced their price on food by 15% specifically for our birthday customers.  Just let us know what you want and we take care of it.

We provide all the paper products and utensils for your party as well as invitations.  We do offer goodie bags at a nominal price.  The goodie bags contain a cotton candy,  a festive blowout and two candies that are contained in a 32 oz. popcorn cup and left open if you want to add to it.

The only items you are reminded to bring with you the day of the party would be dessert, candles…oh, and the children!!

The evening prior to your party, we prepare an instruction sheet for your hostess, so your child’s birthday table will be set up correctly.   Also, when your guests arrive at the theatre, an assignment sheet will be posted to the front of our theatre doors directing them to the auditorium your child is assigned to.


The day of your child’s birthday party, your hostess will introduce herself to the birthday child and will escort you to your theatre.  Our parties begin at 10:00am or at 4:30pm and they go on promptly.  All guests are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the party.

Final payment of your party is cash only and is due at this time.  You can handle this directly with your hostess.  Moving on, the theatre will have two large clear bags dedicated for birthday presents and will have two tables set up under the movie screen that will hold all your popcorns and sodas.

Desserts will be left by our concession stand until the movie is just about ending.  If you have decided on pizza for your party, your host will collect the money from you and pick up the pizza about one hour into the feature (depending on running time of the movie) and will distribute to each child while they are viewing the movie.

About ten minutes prior to the end of the movie, your hostess will prepare the table with your dessert choice.  When the movie ends and the credits start rolling, we lower the sound and turn on the lights.  We congregate the kids around the birthday table to sing Happy Birthday.   This is a great time to take pictures of family and friends.


The party now is coming to a close.  Your hostess will hand out the cupcakes or cake; the kids will collect their goodie bags; find their parents and off they go.  She will gladly help you take the birthday presents to your car as well as any left over pizza, birthday cake, etc.

Some food for thought….Birthday Parties at Elwood aren’t just for children.  They are for everyone!  In fact, they don’t have to be Birthday Parties at all.  We can host themed parties, holiday parties, corporate functions, fundraisers.  You name it and we will make it happen.  We hope that you consider us for that special occasion.

PLEASE NOTE:  Films are scheduled through our distributors and we cannot guarantee how long a film will be playing at our theatre or when they may want the film back.  If the film is recalled without any notice to us, we will gladly refund your deposit or you may select another film that we are currently showing.

    I would like to reserve a Friday party for 4:30pm, preferably October 7th for a7yr old. Would like the gift bags and cake only I will bring. For about 15 children how much would that be and how soon can invites be retrieved?
