Actually, I remember seeing “Pulp Fiction” here when I was 17.

I remember coming here as a teenager. It must have closed around the late 1990s.

When was this theater opened? When did it change from Cinema World to Carmike?

It was Cinema World then.

Considering that the nearby Hollywood was re-opened for only about a year, I sincerely wish the Denis all the luck in the world.

SusanD commented about Northway Mall 8 on Sep 2, 2008 at 8:10 am

Paul,

As the description above says, it was a second-run theatre when you worked there. It’s not surprise that it lasted less than twenty years and that going to first-run was a mistake. Northway Mall has always been considered a second-tier mall.

SusanD commented about Norwin Cinemas to end 28-year run on Aug 19, 2008 at 3:38 pm

This sucks. In the past 12 months we have lost the Screenworks, the Hollywood, and now the Norwin.

SusanD commented about Norwin Cinemas on Aug 19, 2008 at 3:36 pm

Now it is closed. This sucks. We have lost at least three theatres (Screenworks, Hollywood, and now the Norwin) within the past several months.

I haven’t been to this area in years. Have they done anything with the old Eastland Mall site?

SusanD commented about Cheswick Theatre on Jul 16, 2008 at 11:11 am

I’ve been here a couple of times. It’s kind of a piecemeal theatre in that the screens were added over the years. But it’s kinda nice to see a flick here.

SusanD commented about Oaks Theater on Jul 16, 2008 at 11:09 am

An interesting place to see a movie. It’s a bit of a drive from where I live (Squirrel Hill), but I’ve been here a couple of times and it’s an enjoyable place.

Has anybody been to this theatre? What’s it like and in what kind of area is it in?

SusanD commented about Maxi-Saver Cinemas on Jun 17, 2008 at 9:39 am

A poster on the “Cinema 4” entry says that this place is not doing well. I hope that it does not close because it is the last bargain house in the Pittsburgh are now that the Hollywood and the Screenworks have closed.

SusanD commented about Cinema 4 on Jun 17, 2008 at 9:37 am

Thank you Ed Blank. You’re right about the younger kids—but I still see them at the Maxi-Saver too. I would have thought that families and the older movie goers would appreciate the lower prices. I would have thought that market would still be strong.

I’ve also thought that the re-naming of the theatre was done rather cheaply. On the marquee, you can still see the “SH” labelscar.

Thank you Ed Blank for the information on the C4 (aka South Hills). It’s strange, but with the economy not doing so well, I would think that second-run bargain theatres would be doing well. People don’t want to spend as much when the money is tight. But the past month saw both the Hollywood and the Screenworks close after very brief periods of being re-opened.

SusanD commented about Cinema 4 on Jun 1, 2008 at 11:14 pm

I looked at those photos of the Denis. That modern marquee sure was ugly!

I’m hoping that someone could revive the Hollywood, the C4, and the Denis. The Dormont/Mt. Lebanon area could support them. My husband and I went to the Hollywood once during the period it was re-opened and we really liked it.

This F@#king sucks! My husband and I went once after it re-opened and we loved it!

SusanD commented about Whitehall Theater on May 20, 2008 at 3:44 pm

I don’t believe I was ever here. Wasn’t this theatre in Whitehall and not Brentwood?

SusanD commented about Screenworks 14 on May 13, 2008 at 8:00 am

This theatre is now closed. It closed in April, 2008.

SusanD commented about Loews 20 North Versailles on Jan 10, 2008 at 10:44 am

Now that I think about it, wasn’t this place down the road from the drive-in? I’m beginning to think it wasn’t on the same site.

SusanD commented about Waterworks Cinemas on Jan 4, 2008 at 8:04 am

So now it should be listed as “Open”, showing first run films.

SusanD commented about Waterworks Cinemas on Jan 4, 2008 at 8:02 am

Ooops, I forgot, the place has re-opened.

SusanD
SusanD commented about Waterworks Cinemas on Jan 4, 2008 at 7:57 am

I would like to see this place re-opened and re-modeled. It wasn’t that old when it closed. I remember when they first opened this place.

SusanD commented about Denis Theatre on Jan 4, 2008 at 7:51 am

Kelly,

Let’s hope that someone buys it who has the resources in which to properly renovate it. I’d like to see it go back to being the way it was originally, although I’m much too young to remember that!

I remember riding the T out to this theatre.

This is an awesome drive-in. Being the last in Allegheny County, I highly recommend coming here for a show on summer’s evening!
