Yep, what a shame.

TLSLOEWS,

I used to be in a Pittsburgh-based band called EPONYMOUS. These days I give music lessons.

I believe this place is sitting vacant now.

I know tlsloews. I was here the week it opened.

Well said, Beansie. I like multi-plexes but you echoed my sentiments. I think there should be room for the small operator too.

tlsloews,

Don’t get me wrong, I like this place. It’s just a little far from my house.

SusanD commented about Dormont Theatre on Feb 17, 2010 at 1:15 pm

I thought for a moment that this was the old South Hills/Cinema 4. I did a Google Maps “Streetview” search on the address and “2885 West Liberty Avenue” appears to have been a Evans TV Store. Unless the Dormont Theatre was a storefront/nickelodeon, there’s nothing to indicate a theatre was ever here.

Mike Rivest,

The link doesn’t work.

I’m hoping this place can get renovated.

With the advent of VCRs, this had to be one of the last porno theatres anywhere.

My husband has a book on Pittsburgh Railways in the early 1960s. There are a couple of photos of Pittsburgh streetcars passing this theatre, which was already closed by this time.

Somebody just bought the Silverdome for pennies on the dollar. What will become of this place?

SusanD commented about Irving Mall 14 on Jan 12, 2010 at 6:29 am

I was at the nearby American Airlines Training Center for a week-long seminar. Some of my colleagues and I took a cab over here to see a show. Not a bad place to see a movie.

Any news on this place?

The Three Rivers Film Festival is going on here right now. I encourage everyone to attend.

It’s a shame this place closed. Pittsburgh is losing its independent, locally-owned cinemas.

SusanD commented about Hollywood Theater reopens on Aug 3, 2009 at 7:30 am

I really hope that this place succeeds. It failed under previous management. My husband and I saw “Dreamgirls” here and we really enjoyed the theatre.

Here’s hoping the Denis does well too.

SusanD commented about Cinema 4 on Jul 22, 2009 at 10:07 am

That’s a shame. Just what we all need, another boring chain drug store! I’ve never been the the SHT/C4, but here’s hoping the renovated Denis and Hollywood Theatres can make a go of it.

Oops,

“Invitations to openings and special events” should have been right underneath “First Class mailing….” (Yes, I did “cut-and-paste” from the PGH Film Makers' Site.

And yes, Cinema Treasures, please update the correct link above

SusanD commented about Regent Square Theater on Jul 7, 2009 at 8:39 am

Update,

The website should be www.pghfilmmakers.org

My Girl Posse and I went here recently to see “Anvil, The Story of Anvil” which is a documentary on an aging metal band from Canada. Not quite “Spinal Tap” (because the band does exist), it still has its funny moments.

They have a great deal here if you go frequently. You can become a “Screenie” for $70.00. You get

12 admissions to our theaters* (can be shared with a friend)

I used to go there when I was a student at FLETC. From your description, this is a new theater in the mall.

Oh, and the Norwin too!

SusanD commented about Rainbow Cinemas on Jun 17, 2009 at 2:58 pm

I’d have to ask my Mom and Dad, but I think I was here when I was a kid (I’m in my early 30s now). When I think of all of the movie venues once prevalent in the area (Monroeville Mall, Showcase East, White Oak, Eastland, and yes even the Loews 20) now all gone. I think the only place within miles to see a show is the Destinta.

SusanD commented about Manor Theatre on May 7, 2009 at 11:35 am

A 1937 photo of the Manor can be found here View link

It looks like it’s always had the Tudor style. Maybe Cinema Treasures can update this page to reflect that?
