Thanks for the new pic lost memory. I have many happy memories of the old theater when my grandpa owned it but it still looks so similar in your 2002 pic :)

The Hoboken Twin located on Hudson Street was owned by my family Orjelick-Theaters. At its peak my grandfather owned 15 movie theatres. Many closed prior to when I was born in 1976. They were small family theaters that usually had 1-2 screens. Many of theaters included spanish films at one time. In an article I found about the Orjelick-Theatres dated June 11, 1987 it stated, “One by one, those theatres went under unable to survive the advent of the suburban multi-screen franchise cinema…By the 1980’s the Orjelick-Theatres had dwindled down to three properties to include the Art Theatre in the Bronx, the New Delancy in Manhattan and the Hoboken Twin in NJ.” The only other theater I remember that my family had owned was called the Coliseum Theater and was located in NY (52nd St & 4th Ave). Best :)
