Nice Theatre. Glad to see it survived the multiplexes. My Mother grew up in Rome and talked about the Uptown and Stanley alot.
This is a great theatre. It was always packed when I attended back in the 90’s.
I love the original Cinerama Dome, but the Archlight is way over priced and nothing special. I’d much rather they renovated and re-opened the Pacific, Vogue and Ritz- and kept the Galaxy. At least it would have helped bring back the Boulevard.
What a shame. One beautiful theatre. Its plain but I love the marquee. Is it still standing?
Added two photos I took in June 1991.
Very true. I was there last week. Awful sad.
Here is a photo. That is the address. Building still stands. Think it stopped showing movies in the mid-seventies. I believe every movie theatre in Sullivan County except the Calicoon is closed now.
Thank you for all the information muviebuf and Dennis. This was one of my favorite theatres!
Mike, I added a photo. I attempted to get a shot of the marquee out a car window but the trees got in the way unfortunately. This was around November of 1988.
Awesome news! This theatre must be a grand site all lit up at night! There is alot of filming being done in the area, it would be nice to see premires, screenings and celebrity appearances here- some charity going towards rebuilding efforts.
What a shame! Do we really need another McDonalds? Yes, that caption is great!
Sad to hear they’re not showing movies here anymore. Visited this cinema in the nineties when it was an art house. Saw “Indochine”.
This is a great theatre…one of the best I’ve ever had the chance to visit.
Yes, this theatre is in Reisterstown. I lived accross the street in 1993-1994. It was in a Shopping Center with a Mars, Woolworth’s and an Ames Dept. Store. I posted a Fall 1994 photo.
Great photo Bob! I’m posting one of the front of the theatre from 1988.
I added two photos of the 9 Cine in the mall from Dec. 1991. The Plaza 4 in the parking lot was closed then.
I remember there was also an amc theatre in a strip mall nearby.
I’m adding a photo of the actual 9 screen theatre that was inside the adjacent mall. A 1991 photo.
Pretty wild- missed this one on my photo journey in DC.
Very Nice! Second run discount policies saved many great theatres for a time.
Looking nice in this photo! I watched second run double features here in the 90’s. The place was in bad shape then.
The film playing was “Best Seller.” in my photo.
The Imperial Theatre was located on Rt.9 in Wappingers Falls, NY between Fishkill and Poughkeepsie, if you were driving towards the South Hills Mall, it was in a strip mall to the right. The area is so built up now, I’m not sure of its exact location.
Very true. I have photos of the Egyptian back in 1988 and 1989 and it was going strong. It had three screens. The Vogue and Hollywood were still operating then also.
If anyone in the universe would want to save the classic theatres-you’d think it would be L.A. and Hollywood. Soon, like Hollywood Boulevard, all the theatres in Westwood will lie decrepid, a multiplex will be built and the chain stores and restaurants will come in, and the charm of Westwood will be gone. The new generation doesn’t give a crap about the past and America is pricing itself out of everything. Every street in America looks the same now-same chains, same everything. Blah!
