Can anyone give me info on the Cinemart on Gov Prinz? I can’t find any info anywhere, but, I stop to look at it every time I’m in the area. What a mystery. The only thing I can tell is that I was built in the 60’s due to the chandelier and font on the front sign.

Great pic NYozoner. Thanks! It’s amazing how different things looked before the 141 expansion.
I wonder how many drive-ins bit the dust for WalMarts in the 80s.
