Expect low attendance for this film in Rockaway. Will do well at the Claridge in Montclair.

The small local theaters are becoming a thing of the past…very sad.

Eventually there will be no more left.

I went to the Paramount in the 50’s to see Alan Freed and his shows. I do not believe they also showed ie during the rock,n roll engagements.

I do not believe they had a movie showing during the rock'n roll shows in the 50’s. As I remember, there was only as show.

The theater is closed and demolished. The description should be changed to reflect this. Certainly not correct as is.

I went to Penn State in 1957-1958 and remember the Cathuam. Does anyone know when it closed?

The reason they had ushers in the “good old days” is that there were double features and people would come done the aisles in the middle of one picture, watch the end of it, then the next picture and then the first half of the original picture. Neededthe ushers to help people find theseats in a the darkened theater.

If I Recall, there was an old painting on the outside brick wall of the theater that was probably done in the early 1900’s advertsing vaudville. I think the original name of the theater was not the State, perhaps the Orpheum? I think that the name of the theater was on the wall. What is on that site now?…anyone know?

ryunkin:

You failed to list the State Theater which was down the side street from Quakenbush Department Store. There were actually 8 theaters in the 40’s and 50’s

Vincent:

Actually, other than the I-Max theaters, there are no really wide screen theaters any more.

Actually, based upon “Alexander”, “Troy” etc., no one will be intere3sted in making any more “epic” type of films.

there was never a movie theater on Route 4 Westbound other than Cinema 35 which no longer shows films. What theat across from the bridal shop are the people talking about.

The 10 Plex is badly run down and is way past its heyday.

Although the 6 theaters remind me of sitting in a public school basement, the theater seems to doing a brisk business with it’s selection of films that very rarely play in other theaters.

They stopped making Cinerama films almost 40 years ago..forget that idea. If they showed wide screen epics it would be like any other theater and probably eventually close as so many neighborhood theaters have done over the years.

Leave it as it is..and besides, the popcorn is fresh made and great

It was a great theater in the 40’s and early 50’s when it was a single theater.

On a Saturday afternoon the placed was often filled to capacity because of the double feature, 10 cartoons, movie serial or the races. The races showed the worst stereotypes of all the ethnic minorities…would never be able to show those things today.

Does anyone remember the Fine Arts Theater in Passaic which was originally the Lincon Theater? I think it was on Lexington Avenue.

Does anyone remember the Regent Theater in Paterson? Had an very long and large lobby as I recall because there were two entrances from different streets.

Charles:

When were the theaters you listed in existence?

lfreimauer commented about Majestic Theater on Aug 26, 2004 at 12:47 pm

do not recall any of the theaters you mentioned. I remember the Rivoli was was just south of Broadway I believe the only theater on Main Street was the U.S. I am going back to the early 40’s. When were the other theaters there? Also remember the Garden (Market) the Regent, State (down the side street from Quakenbush) the Fabian, and the Plaza.

Please let me know where the theaters you mentioned were, and when.
