I grew up with this movie theater, and clearly remember going to see Star Wars (A New Hope), plus Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. I remember when ROTJ came out opening day, the line to get in was wrapped all the way around the building.

I saw many other films from the 1980’s besides the Star Wars Trilogy at this theater. I also remember many snow days spent watching movies here, when not much else in town was open. Seems like this theater closed in the later 1980’s when Market Place Six opened. Now Market Place Six is closed! The plaque indicating the time capsule is still present today.
