A sign advertising this theatre still stands today, next to Route 24. Where the list of seven movies should be, there is just the single word “CLOSED”.

Thanks for the info, MovieMatty. I did some research and found that the Foxy Lady was located behind the former Sack/Sony/Loews/Entertainment Cinemas multiplex. If the theatre site was demolished, I’m guessing the former property currently serves as additional parking for club patrons, employees, and performers.

Brockton-based filmgoers are mostly, according to the message board at View link now patronizing multiplexes in towns such as Braintree and Randolph – a choice some had made prior, due to the state the Westgate Cinema Centre was in towards the end.

So, Brockton over a few years went from having 10+ screens to having none at all? Where do people go to movies now in that area?

Br91975, the theatre you are referring to was the Old Sack Cinema Brockton (a.k.a. Sony Theatres Brockton, Loews Theatres Brockton, and Entertainment Cinemas West Brockton). It closed in 1996 I believe. To the best of my knowledge, the building was demolished and it made way for The Foxy Lady, a gentleman’s nightclub. Hope this helps and if anyone can add/correct anything, please do.

There used to be a second multiplex in Brockton, located near what was then known as – and may still be known as – Cardinal Cushing Hospital, for all I’m aware, on North Pearl Street, which I think closed sometime in the mid-‘90s. Does anyone know what became of that property?

The Westgate Cinema Centre shut its doors this past October 31st and is scheduled to be torn down and replaced by a sporting goods store.
