Built on the site of the Newark Drive-In, and opened in 1991, this theater lured moviegoers near Newark Airport with urban fare. Two years later, Loews opened its own theater and is the only one operating in Newark, NJ due to competition from the larger Jersey Gardens megaplex in neighboring Elizabeth, which opened seven years after the Loews opened.

It was demolished in March 2014.

I drive by this theater nightly, the lights always turn on after dark, and the Marquee is now tagged with graffiti along with some of the doors on the building itself.

This now closed and rotting hulk, along with its sister companion, the also closed and rotting Amboys Multiplex in Sayreville, N.J. should be demolished. It is a haven for graffitti taggers.

I agree movie534. They should probably label them as Superfund sites.

Demolished???? What kind of building is demolished and its there intact for you to see? LIE… The building is NOT demolished… Someone prove I’m wrong.

This theater opened in December of ‘91. I went here almost every week for 3-years straight, and continued to go here for years (saw some great films). I preferred to only go during the day when there was no one around…because at night, punk kids would shout at the movie and you couldn’t hear anything. Extremely annoying. It closed in 2006. The building still stands, it is not demolished.

Was this on the sight of the old Newark Drive -In?

Yes. It was the sire of the old Newark Drive-In

On my way to New York City this morning just after sunrise, the Turnpike was void of any traffic so I slowed to look at this theatre. It appears from the road that all of the roof top air condition units have been stripped of useable parts/copper, etc. All panels are removed and you can clearly see empty spaces within the units. No doubt rain water must pour in during storms. There is also a banner on the building “For Sale”

Did they tear this down and leave the sign? I could swear I saw the sign the other day driving up the NJTP in Newark.
