The Mid-City Shopping Center opened theatre-less in Menands in July of 1961 anchored by an F.W. Woolworth’s dime store, a Topps Variety Store and a Food Fair grocery. In October of 1972, Mayor John F. Faris joined the principles of a proposed Jerry Lewis Twin Cinema for a groundbreaking with the theatre set to open in 1973 in the plaza. But between planning and the actual opening in 1973, the theatre had dumped the Lewis nameplate and opted for the Star Twin Cinema. Its opening films on May 2, 1973 were “Cabaret” and “The Getaway.”
