This opened on December 14th, 1979. Grand opening ad for this cinema in the photo section. Also uploaded a grand opening ad for the Movie City in Woodbridge NJ. Same ad design.

Yes he was. Ed Grant, who spit in the faces of union projectionists when they picketed in front of his theatres up here in New Jersey. I remember him well. Pure….well, I’m not gonna say it here.

I did the install of the projection and sound equipment and front end screens done by Arne Jakobsen. All auditoriums had mono sound / Cinemeccanica V-5 projectors and Xetron consoles. Kelmar hard wired interlock system to allow any room to share a print. We where limited by roof height and existing support pillars for room size. On opening day the fire marshal ordered that 100 seats be removed which the owner illegally added….some where later installed in the lobby for people waiting to go in. The owner was from New Jersey and had done some other sites using re-cycled buildings.
