It was a nice alternative for our art house movies to Montclair – now Palisades thanks to cheaper digital distribution is getting more and more art house films (including a few that didn’t come to Montclair). It had originally split bookings with the UA in Spring Valley, and both tanked when Loews opened. Both theaters were successful and became ghost towns when Palisades opened: now Regal is trying its hand at a 12-plex with an RPX screen at the revitalized mall (which will be a hybrid mall and outdoor life style center) – and it will probably work (the AMC at Palisades has seen better days but still serves its purpose).

In 1997 there was a huge blackout in Rockland. This theater was one of the few places open. I went to see Cop Land – halfway through, the theater blacked out. Only a year or two later it closed, I showed up to view the interior wreckage, they mistook me for someone else and let me in to poke around.

Yes, somewhat large, but then again quite undistinguished, with the most generic, boxy strip mall architecture possible. Had no identifying characteristics. I do remember seeing “Pink Floyd: The Wall” there first run. It will not be missed.

The theatre featured five screens—two seated 500 each. It was actually quite a large plex. When Loews took over Cineplex Odeon, they turned the Movies 5 Nanuet into an art house. When the lease ran out, the place closed and was gutted.
