According to an article dated July 29,1979 in the Enquirer the Montclair was under the controll of Mid-States theaters and was due to begin construction of 4 theaters ,in spring 1980. These will be added to 8 other screens at that site for a total of 12 screens .Whether any of this took place will require further exploration.

Hank, I straighted out your article – it’s referring to the 275 East Cinema in Milford which I just added. It started with 4 screens, and 8 more were planned but never built. It was located on 5874 Montclair Blvd, which may be what’s getting it confused with this listing.
