The UA Cinema opened in the K-Mart shopping center in Hazlet on Route 35 in March of 1973 with a double-bill of “The Getaway” and “The Emigrants”. It was a twin cinema with the larger auditorium on the left and the smaller one behind the snack bar on the right.

It was somewhat similar in design to the UA in South Plainfield and they often ran their ads together. Although it was the most popular cinema in the area during the 1970’s it was only open ten years, closing sometime in the fall of 1983.

Definitly NOT demolished. A huge Fashion Bug store occupies the space. I just drove by it today.

For the record, the original space that the theatre occupied was extended to accommodate store expansion. An addition was attached to the open side of the building that extended further toward the highway. I was a relief projectionist at this theatre. It’s primary projectionist was Arthur Cavallo, Sr. (now deceased).

KGordonMurray, I guess you probably know a projectionist I worked with for 9 years at the Middlebrook Galleria Cinemas in Ocean Twp. Jerry Cunningham. He was a great guy to work with.
