A late Streamline Moderne theater anchored to a sixteen store, ten office shopping complex on a seven acre site with parking for 500 cars. It was the largest suburban theater in the area except for the Paramount Theater in Peebles Corner. It was opened in July 1949 with Ray Milland in “It Happens Every Spring”. All 1,500 seats were located on a single floor.
The Valley Theater had an organist named Johanna Gross, of “Moon River” radio fame and RKO Albee Theater renown to play the Valley Theater organ. The entrance featured a 71 foot pylon in aluminum with an enormous film reel perched at its top to suck the customers in visually. It was twinned March 25, 1975.
