1985? but the ad says 1983!!
So many fights in the parking lot. surprised they didn’t have cop on duty at all times…
Myron, wow thanks for the info, really interesting to know that it was a church from 81-83, so it sat empty from 83-87 that it was demolished. Wow, I wish we could get a hold on of some rare photos of the theater circula 78-81. One thing I never knew is that there was a sign that advertised what movie was showing, was it in the parking lot so it could be seen on the highway? and what was the inside like when you got to it?? was it run down? by 1980 thanks….
I remember seeing"Ghost “ there in summer of 90, and this guy drove up in his truck right up to doors all rude and parked his truck there with his radio balring; not a care in the world.
This theater use to be notrious for its parking lot being like a ring center for FIGHTS , FIGHTS , FIGHTS, specially on weekends!
its amazing how alot of theaters that show X rated movies, turn into churches..
Raiders shown here in nov 1981
The last year of operation was either 1991 or 1992. pretty sure it was 1991 though…
It closed on October 12th, 1980! The last movie was “Mother’s Day”. It was a Sunday. Last showing was at 9:15 pm.
Is that a “Halloween” poster on the left?? This picture must be 1985..
Actually both theater s “Cinemart and Edge moor” closed in fall 1980. and Midway was summer of 1976…
Actually “Hardcore” was filmed in 1978. It was released in February of 79..
Actually the ad I have for Friday the 13th part V in March of 1985 list it as a 4 screen, so it was a 4 screen long before 1993..
Check out the photo section here. I put a lot of ads up..
It closed oct 12th 1980, but not much else is known except for that it was turned into a church for all people, but when? by 1987 it was demolished. I wonder how long the church lasted from ?? and would love to see some recent photos from the late 70’s for the theater..
It was knocked down, now a K-mart stands in it’s place. 95 was it’s last year. Check out the photo section to see all the cool movies that played here…
Seen the movie “Wonderland” about the john holmes murders in October of 2003. Nice theater.. even had users and lobby cards.
Narrowed it down today. Looks like the last or one of the last movies shown here was Strange Invaders with nancy allen and paul le mat. Last listing was Thursday October 20th 1983..
well according to these pictures from American classic images. theater was open for business in August of 80 showing the shining…
Would have loved the seen “Dawn of the Dead ” with “Halloween” on this big screen which played here in May of 79. then dawn , lasted another week on a double bill with the Exorcist..
wow, saw that article and it showed the screen room with the seats. I wonder how much run down it looked in it’s last year 1980, which it shown horror movies only.. If anyone can find any photos from 78-80 that would be cool..
Ok, went over to cinema tour and theres pictures of it still being open as of May 1993, one of the movies showing is Falling Down. so not sure how much longer it lasted after that..
not sure what year it closed. but through my research iam seeing the it was open up until summer 0f 1983, trading places show here.
Other films that shown here were –
Happy Birthday to Me May 1981,
The Boogey Man, 1980
The Funhouse March 81
An officer and a gentlemen, 1982. and Battle Beyond the Stars 1980.
