NickyG, the midnight cult stuff – Rocky Horror, Eraserhead, The Harder They Come, etc. — played at the Strand, known in those days as the Art Cinema, on the corner of George and Albany.

JerseyGeorge commented about Europa Theater on Jan 28, 2007 at 5:33 am

I suspect the Europa was gone a lot earlier than the mid ‘80s. I was at Rutgers in the mid '70s and it wasn’t there. Until the mid '60s we lived about five miles away and we used to drive down Somerset Street to St. Peter’s RC church, and I don’t remember it.

No. Movie City 5 wasn’t located in Brunswick Square Mall — it was on the other side of Route 18 and maybe a half mile further south.

A shot of the Strand in its Art Cinema incarnation, XXX days. You can just see the marquee to the left.

JerseyGeorge commented about Loews Route 18 Theatre on Feb 4, 2006 at 7:54 am

The UA Turnpike Indoor/Outdoor was not the theater on Route 1 in North Brunswick. Rather, it was located a very short distance south of the Loews Route 18 – you could see the Indoor/Outdoor from the Miracle Mall parking lot, which did indeed have a Crazy Eddie’s at one time. The UA theater on Route 1 in North Brunswick was the Brunswick Drive-In.

There was an affiliated theater, also named Movie City, on the northbound side of Rt. 18 in East Brunswick during the late ‘70s and '80s. Multi-screen, second-run.

Minor correction: the Art Cinema was demolished along with the rest of the so-called Golden triangle during one of New Brunswick’s never-ending redevelopment projects.

The Brunswick Drive-In was part of the United Artists chain from at least 1976.

I’m not sure when the Strand closed, but it was not demolished. The Art Cinema (not listed here) was in business on the same location in the ‘70s. It was the place to go for Rocky Horror back then.
