I’m originally from Fall River and remember how devastated I was when the Center Theatre on South Main St. closed in the 70s. Fall River was without a theatre for several years until the one at the Harbour Mall opened in the early 80s (think it was 1983). At the time, I was a student at Salve Regina College in Newport. I sure saw a lot of mindless stuff in that place—such classics as Footloose, Better Off Dead, Hot Dog, Making the Grade, Dirty Dancing and Switch.
Though it’s still in existence, the place brings back fond memories of my adolescence. Used to go there with a buddy of mine all the time. Turned out we were more interested in each other than the cheesy bimbo starlets we’d see on the screen, but that’s a story for another forum :)
I think my movie tastes have improved; however, I can still enjoy a bad comedy.
