This theater is closed once again. Bad booking and not getting the top movies did not generate enough revenue for this theater. Also BCG gave back the lease back to Nelson Page who owns http://bigscreenclassics.com

Many fond memories here when this was a Twin Theater in the 70s and 80s. Among the films I saw “The Empire Strikes Back”, “Altered States”, “Clash of the Titans”, “Return of the Jedi”, “Gremlins”, “Enemy Mine”, “Aliens”, “Crocodile Dundee”, “Star Trek IV”, “Hot Shots”, “Ricochet” and “Beastmaster II”, few others. I haven’t been to this cinema in 20 years, I remember it being getting to be pretty grimey, have they cleaned it up?

The Hudson Plaza Cinema opened on December 22, 1967, according to an item in Boxoffice Magazine’s issue of January 1, 1968. It was one of five new theaters opened across the country by General Cinema on the same day.

Sound is mono but projection is good. Mark, the operator, does his best to do a very good job. Nice employees also.

The theatre is now owned by Boston Culinary Group using CMCI as a booking service.

Hudson Plaza Cinema was where I saw some of the best films of the 60s/70s when I was a kid growing up in the West Side section of Jersey City. I didn’t have too many freinds so I found great comfort as a kid cathcing the Bargain Matinee at the Hudson Plaza Cinema. Among the films I saw there—
“Yours, Mine, and Ours,” “The French Connection,” Woody Allen’s “Bananas,” “The Andromeda Strain,” “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?,” “The Great White Hope,” “The Godfather,” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” and “Jaws.”

I still can recall the General Cinema Corporation’s little film intro which preceded each film.

I liked the theater best when it was a one-screen theater.

Theater is now running full 7 screens…visit was very pleasant, 6 dollars all shows, staff was very nice, and the popcorn was nice and fresh.

The theatre reopened tonight (three screens operating, the rest to follow over the next couple of weeks) as part of the Galaxy Theatre Corp.’s chain.

The new name is the HUDSON CINEMAS.

This cinema was a Regal (or Magic Cinemas, a chain they aquired in the mid 90’s) way before AMC ever came upon purchasing this house. I belive it was first subdevided as 4 screens (owned independently) and then 7 under Regal (or Magic Cinemas).

General Cinema declared bankruptcy, and sold the chain to AMC. I don’t think Richard Smith has much emotion about the failure of his family to be successful in running the business started by his father, Phil Smith, so many years ago.

So, does General Cinema even exist anymore? Is the chain now non existent? If not, where are their remaining theaters?
