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!

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.

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?

The marquee and exterior are wonderful. The interior is considerably more plain. Still, it’s a good place to see a show.

Thanks, KingB.

I thought they were the same. I was only here once.

Look at Rivest’s link in his comments on the Northway Mall. The newspaper ads he links to do show a West Hills Theater existed in the 1980s.

Wasn’t this theater once known as the Super Saver?

SusanD commented about Marquee Cinemas-Steamtown 8 on Mar 18, 2009 at 5:50 pm

This theater opened around 1995. It was part of the redevelopment of the Downtown area. It’s opening coincided with the opening of Steamtown Mall. All of this was concurrent with the National Park Service’s redevelopment of the Steamtown train museum, which the NPS owns.

This theater is now closed.

I went here with my husband and some of our friends to see “Coraline”. I hadn’t been here before ‘cos I see almost all my movies in my nieghborhood. The Squirrel Hill Theatre is within walking distance and the Manor is right around the corner from our house. The Waterfront is a pretty decent megaplex.

Carmike is now advertising that you can use your debit or credit card here and that a 99 cent fee applies.

Yippee! Now I can be charged a 99 cent service charge on a 99 cent ticket!

SusanD commented about Waterworks Cinemas on Mar 9, 2009 at 2:50 pm

Thanks for posting that newspaper! I loved it. So many memories of when I was a teenager. I especially liked the listings for Cinema World. Carmike bought most of the Cinema World locations and here is a list of what happened to them:

Southland 9 and Cranberry remain Carmikes;
Manor and Squirrel Hill are now Cinemagic;
Penn Hills is independent, I believe;
Bellevue, Norwin, Denis, and Rainbow are closed. The Denis may reopen soon. The Bellvue and the Rainbow are now dollar stores;
Monroeville was demolished.

It was once under Cinema World. Is it now independent?

SusanD commented about Harmar Cinemas on Mar 9, 2009 at 2:38 pm

It’s a shame this place closed. Wasn’t it under common management with the nearby Waterworks Cinema?

SusanD commented about Manor Theatre on Jan 5, 2009 at 5:08 pm

This theater is right around the corner from my house. I love it! Not only can I walk to it, they play “national indie” films that I like.

Unless the facade was remodeled into this style, I believe it should be a “Tudor”.

SusanD commented about Waterworks Cinemas on Jan 5, 2009 at 4:48 pm

We had a “Girl’s Night Out” here on Saturday Night. We saw “Marley & Me”. The Waterworks is still a decent place to see a show.

SusanD commented about Chatham Cinema on Dec 15, 2008 at 7:58 pm

I’ve gone past this place many times too—never knew there was a movie theater in here.

Also, I’m sad that they’re going to be replacing the Civic, I mean Mellon Arena. To me, it’s a landmark and I love its nickname, the Igloo.

When did this theater open? As Paul F. says, it may have opened prior to 1991.

I wish them all the success in the world. Especially after what happened to the Hollywood in Dormont, I hope they can make a go of this place.

Here’s hoping the Denis in Mt. Lebanon will do better.

SusanD commented about Charlotte multiplex closes after one year on Nov 5, 2008 at 6:03 pm

The same thing happened with the Hollywood Theater in Dormont, PA. It re-opened amid much hoopla after being closed for nearly a decade. But after all the effort that went into renovating it, it shut down again a year later.

Any word on what’s going to happen to this place?

SusanD commented about Waterworks Cinemas on Oct 23, 2008 at 9:21 pm

Please, please, please Cinema Treasures! Update this theatre to “Open”. I went here with one of my girlfriends to see “W”.

They have a great deal here. On any NON-HOLIDAY Monday, you can see any movie for $5.00, including a small popcorn.
