Loew’s 1973 annual report said that the Troy Hills house was among those slated to be twinned.

A few photos of this theater were published in the May 16, 1966, issue of Boxoffice Magazine. One photo showed that it had a fairly typical curtain-wall auditorium. The caption gave the seating capacity on opening as 1200.

This theatre, I believe, was almost identical in size and style to the Loew’s Route 18 (which also was twinned in 1973) in East Brunswick, N.J.

When they twinned it did they cut it in half 500 seats a side.And does anybody have any pictures?

Why would anyone care whether a movie theater was twinned or not over thirty years ago?

tisloews is right having been a theatre manager himself he knows how a beautiful single screen is ruined by throwing the lousy wall down the middle,we all know why,MONEY,still it is a pity to ruin a theatre by twinning or even squezzing more screens in like UA did with my favorite hometown theatre.

It wasn’t until 1993 when Loews returned to Morris County with the opening of the East Hanover 12 plex. At one point Loews was to build what would become the AMC Rockaway 16.

Did this theater have stereo sound?

The Loew’s theatre indeed boasted of its 10-channel stereo sound system with “The Ugly Dachshund” as its opening 70mm film on their 60' screen on April 8, 1966.

Architect was Joseph Schuler.
