2 people favorited this theater
Built in 1959. Until 1968, the Turnpike was a combination drive-in, indoor theatre, with double features showing on a reverse schedule. The indoor theater was split from drive-in in 1969 and opened with road show of “Hello Dolly”. The theater was twinned around 1973. Closed in 1983, and demolished for what is now a condo complex.
The theatre’s design was the same as the Plainfield/Edison Indoor/Outdoor on Oak Tree Road, in Edison.
This design was typical for UA in early 60’s, as the Route 46 Totowa Theatre was of the same design.
The theatre showed the initial roadshows of Sensuround pictures “Rollercoaster” and “Midway” during the 70’s.
