What is in the old location now?
I saw my first movie here in 1982, it was “ET” it must have been right before this place died.
I worked for a local radio station in the early 00’s and went to a lot of sneak previews and premires here. Including the terrible movie “Whipped” and the not terrible movie “Cecil B. Demented”
I actually saw Austin Powers here during the last few days of the theatre’s life.
I saw a bunch of movies here in the 80s. My memory is a bit hazy, and I tend to get this theatre confused with the now also gone (it’s a Barnes and Noble) North Shore Mall theatre, and the old Burlington Mall Theatre, but I am fairly certain I saw Nightmare on Elm St 4, Elvira Mistress of the Dark and Hellraiser II at this theatre.
It might be a false memory but it seemed like this cinema showed more horror flicks in the 80s than some of the other theatres?
The last movie I saw there was Men in Black around 1997 or so, that may have been the last movie shown there, it was certainly ONE of the last movies shown there, because I believe the first movie I saw at the new Mall theatre was either Election or Rushmore which I believe came out in 98 or 99?
When did this stop being a cinema? I remember going to see the movie “Hardwear” there in 1990.
