Lorain Twin Cinemas

Originally the Oakwood Twin Cinemas, after the Oakwood Shopping Center it was part of, the twin theater opened in March 1974. It changed its name to Lorain Twin Cinemas in 1979.

During the 1980’s and early-1990’s, it was noted for having dollar night shows on Mondays and Wednesdays. The fare was generally horror/sci-fi, action-adventure, and R-rated sex films.

The theater closed in 1993.

I saw so many movies here in the early 80s. Monday night was “Ladies Night” so entry was had for $1, and we sure took advantage of it. We loved scary movies at the time so here’s a selection of what we viewed at this cinema: One Dark Night, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Children of the Corn, Evil Dead, American Werewolf in London, etc…

The place was run (at the time) by two men, who I would later find out were a couple. One was a dark haired man who always seemed very nice, but was said to have died in a small plane crash. The other was a blonde man who was not as friendly as the other. But still, the memories of this cinema are special to me, though it’s unfortunate that there’s not really anything left of it.
