All Jersey Multiplex Cinemas

Built on the site of the Newark Drive-In, and opened on November 22, 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.

This is the theatre your thinking about. Also the Amboys Multiplex opened in 1979 and closed in 2005.

Looks like the built some small gas storage towers on the southwest corner and the rest is all storage containers. A regular industrial looking area. You would never know a movie theatre or drive in ever existed.

With the closing of the edgewater theater, there are no more NA/Showcase cinemas left in North Jersey.
