We had a “Girl’s Night Out” here on Saturday Night. We saw “Marley & Me”. The Waterworks is still a decent place to see a show.

Thanks for posting that newspaper! I loved it. So many memories of when I was a teenager. I especially liked the listings for Cinema World. Carmike bought most of the Cinema World locations and here is a list of what happened to them:

Southland 9 and Cranberry remain Carmikes;
Manor and Squirrel Hill are now Cinemagic;
Penn Hills is independent, I believe;
Bellevue, Norwin, Denis, and Rainbow are closed. The Denis may reopen soon. The Bellvue and the Rainbow are now dollar stores;
Monroeville was demolished.

Wow, the newspaper ad posted by Mike Rivest is gone already. That was fast!

Haven’t been up this way in nearly two years. Anybody been here lately?

I was here a couple of years ago when I was visiting friends in Pittsburgh.

I lived and worked in Pittsburgh from the early to mid-1990s and I believe I saw “Speed” here. Was there another multiplex close by?

Shame this theater is closed. I worked there in the mid 90s (Interview with a Vampire, Lion King, Santa Clause, Stargate were all there when I worked there). It was a nice theater, with friendly managers and a great staff. I had some really good times there.

I don’t think it’s closed, just checked their website and it showed me their showtimes.

I went there last month — quite open. Pittsburgh Theatre Corporation is running it.
