Not a bad little 8-plex. Nice big lobby. There was one huge auditorium, which sometimes flooded in the first few rows. The first ever manager was and still is a very good friend of mine.

As of May 2012, all 8 screens upgraded to digital projection. 3D capabilities on 3 screens.

Blakeslee Boulevard is the local name for Route 443.

Yes, I am the same Bruce Copio that worked for General Cinema/AMC from 1981 to 2003. I have been here at Mahoning since 2003.

Small world. My best friend was the manager who opened the place. I cleaned the screens there a few times when I had my business. Hope all is well. I was a projectionist at many GCC sites including Menlo Park, Woodbridge, Blue Star, Brunswick and Bridgewater from 1977 till the early 2000’s. I lasted full time until May 2013 when digital finally got me. Im a stagehand now mostly at the Prudential Center in Newark NJ.

A lot of memories over the years. I was at Blue Star, Hudson Plaza, Morris County Mall, Seaview Square, Somerville Circle, Bridgewater, and Lehigh Valley over a 22 year period.
