Pretty soon they’ll remove any signs that say “Loews Theatres” and the searchlight logo, as well as remove the marquee…I hope the Kerasotes shows a mix of indie, foreign, and box office fare much like the old Loews theaters. The Plaza 8 was popular with kids as they often show family films. Since the theater’s closing, attendance to the nearby shops and stores have probably decreased. The same could be said once the Meadow Six theater closes this Friday, to be replaced by retail space.

Looks like the fitness center is finally up and running – the external makeover is so complete you wouldn’t ever guess there was once an eight-screen theater there

This is the trailer that was shown at this and other Loews theaters during the 80’s…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcXO-iKaJ_Y
During the theater’s final years, big movies would play on multiple screens at both this theater and the meadow six, much like what happened at Paramus with the triplex and the tenplex before the AMC Garden State 16 opened.

Meadow six opened in June 1982. The Plaza 8 opened in 1987 according to New York Magazine. https://books.google.com/books?id=IeUCAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA66&dq=loews+plaza+8&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAtbTi54HKAhULmx4KHZ4gAQs4MhDoAQgkMAA

Actually it opened in late 1986 with The Mission being one of the movies shown in 70mm.

Compared to the Plaza 8, the meadow 6 was the better theater.

Never mind. The Plaza 8 was said successor to the Harmon Cove quad.
