I don’t know anything about this one, aside from the fact that it is run by Reading Entertainment – New Yorkers know them as City Cinemas. The place is maybe eight years old.

This is owned by Reading Cinemas, which started as the Reading Railroad. The old train station in Manville was owned by Central RR of NJ, which was taken over by Reading in 1901.

Uploaded several photos. I question the address in the overview since I saw it referenced online as 140 North Main Street. Any Jerseyites can confirm or refute?

Having worked in nearby Hillsborough for about 10 years, and following the many floods in Manville from the 2 rivers, this place has always been referred to as 180 in any articles. Perhaps 140 is another store within the retail center.

Is it screens 3 and 4 that are the super large ones? I forget. I just know that two of the side by side auditoriums here are huge and have, AFAIK, the largest two screens in all of central and northern NJ. They are supposed to be 70'x30'.

@moviebuff82 yeah they were also, I believe, the first theater in NJ to use the back speaker, I think they put that in for TPM.
