The eight-plex owned by Showcase Cinemas is across the street from this former theater.
This introduction was pieced together by regular posters, (myself), Roger Katz, Joe Masher, Wobbly, Hollywood and TommyR.
According to the Milford/Orange City Directory, the Orange 1-2-3 opened under General Cinema in 1966, then became 1-2-3-4-5 in 1975 and became Showcase, then six screens in 1980 and seven in 1983.
Opened with 3,000 seats total. This area wasn’t built up with stores or malls so this huge building was in the middle of nowhere and quite modern. It showed first-run movies.
In 1973/1974, one of the three was gutted into two, so it became Showcase 4. In the summer of 1974, they used a portion of the oversized lobby space into a fifth space, but it was too small.
When the theatre opened, its advertising stated you could park three 747s in the lobby alone. After there were five screens, two more were built behind the main complex.
After it was torn down, the Bayer corporation built offices and a factory on the site and the new Showcase complex was built across Marsh Hill Road.
