Cinemas East opened on July 17, 1974. It consisted of 4 auditoriums. Opening day featured “Mame”, starring Lucille Ball in the largest auditorium, with “The Way We Were”, “ A Touch of Class” and “ American Graffiti” in the others.

My first theatre job was here from April 1984 until January 1991. I didn’t realize until I worked at other theatres how narrow the projection booth was, which made it difficult to move prints around. It didn’t help that boxes of concession cups and lids were stored there because of lack of space elsewhere. Still, there were a lot of good memories there. I was glad to have worked for Commonwealth Theatres while it was still around, since they were the chain I remember most when I went to movies when I was younger.
