Showcase Cinemas Warwick

Showcase Cinemas Warwick has been around for several decades, and for a while area residents often chose to see new films at either the first Showcase Cinemas Seekonk (Massachusetts) or else this theatre. There is now another newer Showcase Cinemas in Warwick at Warwick Mall, a few miles to the north. This theatre has undergone modifications, additions, and “stadiumization” over the years. The parking area is vast.

There are movie patrons, I’m sure, who confuse this theatre with the similarly named Showcase Cinemas Warwick Mall. I’ve come here for years, and must have seen most of the new Martin Scorsese films here as they come out, even The Last Temptation of Christ, which had its area premiere here in 1988. For a multiplex there isn’t much to complain about, except the utter sameness. I also don’t like the smaller auditoriums here that have an emergency exit under the screen with a glaring exit light catching your eye all the time. And come to think of it, I don’t like commercials, slide-shows, and about twenty trailers before each movie. Well, not too many complaints.

I have 2 old ticket stubs stamped “Warwick Theatre” July 11, 1964 found in old and very beautiful purse – is this the same theatre? I would love to find out the history of the theatre or at least be able to identify it.

No, the tickets you founf are not from this theatre. This theatre opened in 1983 with “Return of the Jedi.” the tickets you found may be from the old Warwick cinema that used to be on Post Road. It was a 1 screen theatre that seated over 800. 12-15 years ago it was demolished and turned into a Wal-Mart.

No, the Warwick Musical Theatre on Quaker Lane. Go to the Warwick Cinema page for a discussion of this.

This theatre has 14 screens, and a live comedy venue. Not 20.
