Located at the corner of Main Avenue and Clifton Avenue. Opened by 1927, the Clifton Theatre was listed as (Closed) in the 1932 edition of Film Daily Yearbook as a silent movie theatre. It disappeared from listings until 1939, although the theatre actually re-opened December 31, 1937 as the ‘New’ Clifton Theater with Paul Muni in “Emile Zola” & Bing Crosby in “Double or Nothing”.
This theatre was the oldest theatre in Clifton and managed to survive throughout the early years of the 21st century despite competition from the upscale Allwood sixplex and the bigger Clifton Commons. Known for playing urban film fare, the place was closed in April 2000 and demolished in 2000-2001 to make room for a new Walgreen’s, which stands where the old theatre used to be. The only bad theatre that I went to while I lived in Clifton, with poor projection, bad sound, and uncomfortable seats.
