I saw Fatal Attraction in this theatre. At that time it was a twin cinema and was being operated by the Dipsons. The theatre was in excellent condition.

Patsy,
That’s a good idea. Fortunately,they still show films there. In fact, The Wizard of Oz is scheduled for April 20th.

Patsy,
I remember writing the post and I won’t forget seeing a classic film like Ben Hur, with a legendary actor in Charlton Heston, at a classic theatre. If Sheas offered this film again,I’d be there.

The Batavia Drive-in on Rt.5 in Batavia,NY was still standing in the late 80’s.

There were 3 drive-ins in Niagara County,the Starlite,Auto Vue, and Boulevard but they were demolished.

LouB commented about Summit Park Cinema on Feb 19, 2008 at 11:22 am

I was in the mall on Sunday and you’re right,it is a ghost town. The lobby of the twin is used for retail space.
Across the road the sign for the Summit 6 is still in view although most of the letters, thanking patrons for 15 years of patronage,have fallen down.
I have some friends who were projectionists at the theatres and they remember those days well.

I recently saw the movie National Treasure:Book of Secrets here. Seeing this film on the Palace’s big screen with its elegant surroundings certainly made this special.
