05/07/72 CINEMA lll, REDBANK, NJ

No set details known. ONE show, 5PM, with Springsteen (solo) the only artist on the bill – a benefit for 1972 Presidential candidate George McGovern. It is not known how long Bruce’s performance lasted but the $3 donation also included a ticket to see the evening movie. BRUCEBASE reader Larry comments: “I was going through a friend’s Bruce collection, trying to date his early memorabilia and I found this hand made Poster, which came from the Theater’s Box Office

Robert R:

Was this cinema located at 58 Broad Street? If so, it is now a Mr. Mattress, having previously been an art gallery:

A second-generation business owner, Abe Feldmus decided to open his family’s third Mr. Mattress store at 58 Broad St. in Red Bank after moving to town four years ago.

“It’s a great destination town,” said Feldmus, who converted an art gallery space to a mattress showroom featuring Sealy and Stearns & Foster mattresses, beds, and futons, in sizes ranging from single to king. He pointed out the openings for a projector that are still visible in the walls of the store, which once was the location of Red Bank Cinema.

cinema III still exists as the Clearview Red Bank and is located at 36 White Street. it operates as a twin cinema with an art house policy. The building at 58 Broad St was called the Broad Street Cinema. It only operated for a couple of years in the ‘90s playing a hodgepodge of revivals and second run . The place seated only about 100, and projection was in 16mm. The Broad Street never caught on and has been converted back to retail use.
