This theatre now for several weeks has not had any listings of showtimes in the Friday Star Ledger. Is it still open?

I grew up in nearby Iselin and was so excited when this opened as it was going to be the biggest movie theater closest to my house. I ended up seeing many, many movies here.

I remember going to see “Jurassic Park” here in 1993 and, for some reason or another, the movie wouldn’t play. They sent out this poor, young employee to tell a PACKED crowd that they could get their money pack or get credit or whatever. I felt SO bad for him.

I remember the cute receptionist at my job at the time talked me and my friend into going to see “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” here in 1995. We didn’t appreciate it so much at the time, but what an experience and memory it was.

Glad to see it still up and running.
