This used to be the 495 Cinemas. It was first run, as far as I’m aware, in the 80’s and 90’s. This was the only cinema I knew of in Haverhill, along with the cinema in Stateline Plaza, which I guess was technically Haverhill (though I thought of it as being in Plaistow, NH). I remember seeing E.T. in the cinema at Stateline with a bunch of neighborhood kids when I was about four or five, and that the parent in charge gave us all popcorn in brown lunch bags to sneak into the theater. That cinema was turned into a mattress store, and I think it’s still standing though recently there was a new Shaw’s put in and the whole plaza was changed- haven’t been by there to see if it survived. There was also a drive-in screen on route 125 in Plaistow, which may have still been in use in the early 80’s, I can’t remember for sure- the decrepit screen stood for years, but is now gone.
