Opened March 31, 1971 as a single screen named Cinema III, with Walt Disney’s “Fantasia”. Operated by Music Makers Theaters it was a conversion of a former hardware store. It became a twin when another auditorium was created in the building. First operated by Music Makers Theaters, it later became a Loews theatre and was eventually acquired by Clearview Cinemas who operated it as an art house. Operation changed in June 2013 from Clearview to Bow-Tie Cinemas when they took most Clearview locations.
It was closed on March 16, 2020 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Just before shutting down Bow Tie sold the theater to the Count Basie Arts Center who will operate the theater beginning in October, 2020. The Count Basie Center for the Arts reopened October 2, 2020 as the Basie Center Cinemas, for independent and major studio films, for film festivals, and will host lectures and workshops. It will also continue to host late-night screenings of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”. Seating capacities are:199 & 134.
