Located in the Eastway Shopping Center, the Trans-Lux Inflight Twin Cinema opened on Charlotte’s east side on January 21, 1970. It was Charlotte’s second twin theatre in town after the Charlottetown Mall Cinemas opened in 1963. The opening attraction for the grand opening of the Trans-Lux Inflight Twin Cinemas was “Gaily, Gaily” starring Beau Bridges, which played in both auditoriums, known as Cine One & Cine Two. It was operated under Brandt Theatres.
The neighborhood and the theatre declined fairly quickly and by the mid-1970’s it was converted into one of Charlotte’s most notorious twin porn theatres, with the catchy name of Cinema Blue. The building is vacant now, but almost unrecognizable as a theatre. It has been tucked away in the back corner of an aging shopping center that has seen its final days.
