This opened on March 29th, 1972 by Loew’s Theatres. Picture and grand opening ad in the photo section.

After the theatre closed, a church moved in; based on a newspaper photo seen at the time, it appeared the divider wall from its twin screen days had been removed.

While the 16th Street Cinema, I did something totally insane, driving through a thunderstorm to see a revival of “2001: A Space Odyssey” despite a bad cold and fever (probably on the last day of its run). My abiding gratitude to the manager who waived the no outside food/drink decree and let me carry in a gallon of orange juice. To be young and stupid again… Small auditorium, but decent conditions for widescreen.

A correction is needed above. This opened in April 1972 as the Lauderhill II. The deal was most likely made by Loews but sold to GCC before opening.
