The Squire Cinema was located in a small shopping center in New Windsor-just outside of Newburgh. It had a great marque out front and a very large auditorium. It opened in 1965 and twined in 1979, closed in 1986 when a multiplex opened in Newburgh near the mall on Union Avenue.

I went by it today to take photos and it seems this one has been sitting there vacant for 25 years now!

As manager I opened this theatre in February 1966. We opened with “Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machine.” A Bi-Plane was placed on the roof of the lobby, unfortunately the next day was a heavy snow storm which bent the wings down to roof level. We (Spyro Lenas) then opened the Mid-Valley Cinema across town in the (open) mall. Both theatres had 800 seats. The Mid-Valley was the more successful of the two. We also operated the Brookside Drive-In Theatre in Newburg and the Plaza Theatre in Poughkeepsie, NY.In the summer we played “day-and-date” indoor and drive-in.

All of the theatres were sold to Cinecom in 1969.

Ken Lehman…1st manager.
