The Woodbridge Center Twin Cinema was opened around 1980. Located in what is now the Lord & Taylor wing of the mall on the upper level, the auditoriums were extemely small, occupying space that was meant for retail stores.

I don’t ever recall going to a show at the Woodbridge Center Twin and feeling the place was crowded. After being opened for about four or five years, the theatre closed and the space was reconverted to retail space in the mall.

Actually this cinema was definitely open as early as 1976 because I remember seeing OBSESSION there. And it was so small that I remember the show being pretty packed with people, which meant there were probably about sixty of us in the whole place.

It was then the Ohrbach’s wing of Woodbridge Center and I saw Midnight express (1978), Force 10 from Navarone (1978) and I believe either The Wind and the Lion or The Man Who Would Be King which would have been (1975). I believe after it closed it became a Rustler’s Steakhouse.

A theatre where a number of projectionists from my local worked. Each theatre seated 150 people. It actually became a Game Room store after closing.

I don’t think so. The Game Room Store was right up against the Anchor store which I think at the time was Ohrbachs. The theatre was a few doors in and it definitely became a steak house. I ate there many times after the closing of the movie theatre.

When this theatre was built in the mall in the mid 70’s, the floors were all wood. I bet that wouldn’t fly today. I can remember if someone with heels was in one theatre, you could here them walking in the other theatre.

This theater had to be open in the late 1970’s, as I saw “The Big Fix” there in late 1978. That’s one of Richard Dreyfuss' less well known movies.
