Oh I hope nobody inferred anything racial by my above comment.

That’s why I prefer the Manor, even if it’s a little dingy.

It’s in the Waterfront, which is a shopping center/“lifestyle center” built on the site of the old US Steel Homestead Works. Where once high paying industrial jobs existed, now low-paid sales clerks ring up sales of goods made in China at places like Target and Abercrombie & Fitch.

The Waterfront itself is okay, but the rest of Homestead remains devastated by the loss of the mills and it’s ancillary businesses like Mesta Machine. Check out my reviews of the Waterfront View link here. Be sure to click on the two Youtube clips for songs about Homestead.

And despite what I said above, and despite that I like this place’s archeitecture, I’m beginning to dislike this theatre.

The theater must be in a rough part of town. Sounds like bad planning.

I’m shocked no one commented on the shooting death of a patron in the lobby while the theater was showing 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Trying. The film’s wikkepedia page: ( View link) ) discusses its controversies including incidents at a few theaters. Therefore this theater (which I’ve never been) has had some problems with patron behavior.

I went here with my husband and some of our friends to see “Coraline”. I hadn’t been here before ‘cos I see almost all my movies in my nieghborhood. The Squirrel Hill Theatre is within walking distance and the Manor is right around the corner from our house. The Waterfront is a pretty decent megaplex.

Come January 23rd, an IMAX theater will open in auditorium #13 and “The Dark Knight” will be its first movie.

Architect needs to be updated to “David Rockwell/Rockwell Group.”

Loews Jersey Gardens in Elizabeth, NJ shares the same design as the Waterfront. However, during construction of that facility it was discovered that the theatre would not be able to acquire a liquor license and the mezzanine level sat empty, instead of housing the intended “Loews Club” area.

On Christmas Day, 2004, eight teens were arrested for disorderly conduct at this theatre when, according to local police, approximately nine hundred juveniles overran the theatre despite the presence of twelve police officers and two police dogs being paid by Loews Cineplex to provide security.
The theatre closed early, cancelling eight shows, and the local PD is requesting that the facility remain closed on Christmas and Easter in the future. LCE is, obviously, resistant to the suggestion.
