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

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

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 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?

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

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

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.

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.

Please, please, please Cinema Treasures! Update this theatre to “Open”. I went here with one of my girlfriends to see “W”.

They have a great deal here. On any NON-HOLIDAY Monday, you can see any movie for $5.00, including a small popcorn.

So now it should be listed as “Open”, showing first run films.

Ooops, I forgot, the place has re-opened.

I would like to see this place re-opened and re-modeled. It wasn’t that old when it closed. I remember when they first opened this place.

This theater is actually within the city limits of Pittsburgh.not Blawnox.
