The theater opened April 1, 1988, when it showed second run movies. In 2001, it started showing first run films. The theater had very tacky decor, what I could best describe as Egyptian disco, with fake fog and mirror balls. It closed on January 17, 2007.

I worked at Northway Mall very briefly circa 1991. 17 years ago, the theatre did quite well. I believe it was a second-run house by then. What caused the theatre to close?

Paul,

As the description above says, it was a second-run theatre when you worked there. It’s not surprise that it lasted less than twenty years and that going to first-run was a mistake. Northway Mall has always been considered a second-tier mall.

Wasn’t this theater once known as the Super Saver?
