EDWARDSVILLE, PA — The 42 year old Gateway Cinema has closed.

The theater opened December 1964 as a single screen but has been multi-plexed during its lifetime. The original theater was divided into 4, while two newer screens were added during the late 1980’s.

The cinema is a casualty of the new R/C 14 screen theater that recently opened across the river in downtown Wilkes-Barre. The future of the Gateway building is uncertain for now.

I have been to the Gateway Cinema Center in Edwardsville several times. The trouble I see with it is it was never upgrade/ remodeled. The Mens restroom had tile coming off the wall. It really needed upgrades and the addition of several mores screens
