All Jersey Multiplex Cinemas

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.

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.

On my way into the city yesterday on the bus, for the first time in 3 months, the theatre is now nothing but a very small pile of rubble. And yes the Multiplex sign by the turnpike is still there as is the marquee by rte 1. A For Sale sign hangs from it.

How many multiplexes did National Amusments open on drive in site and close in less then 20 year. Besides this I can name the Whitestone Multiplex in the Bronx, the Atco multiplex in South Jersey and there is one more in North Jersey off the New Jersey turnpike.

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

Is there anything on the site now?

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.
