It was first opened as “Cinema 1 and 2” and later re-named “Cinema Center”. Did not have rocking chair seats. Longest-running feature was “Smokey and the Bandit” at 26 weeks, biggest bomb was “Harold and Maude”(4 days, 27 patrons).

Waterville was also home to one of the few “Jerry Lewis Cinemas” which became the “PLaza Cinema” and eventually a porn house.

Scene of a local riot in the 1970’s when they presented a midnight showing of “Night of the Living Dead” that oversold.

A dump, but the only place to see alternative cinema in Central Maine.
