9 people favorited this theater
Opened in the waning days of the RKO-Stanley-Warner circuit, the theater was originally known as the RKO Stanley Warner Triplex.
In its later years, this hard top box was run by Century Theaters which once had a strong presence in the New York metropolitan area.
Every chain that once occupied the theater is still represented on the theater’s signage with the facade bearing the name "RKO Century Paramus Theatres".
The theater was operated by Cineplex Odeon (Loews Cineplex) in its later years. The Stanley-Warner name can still be seen in the entrance of this shopping center cinema which is at the junction of Routes 4 and 17 in Paramus.
A true "Cinema Treasure"? Maybe not. But with 70mm projection and a dated, throwback quality, the Cineplex Odeon Route 17 was a reminder of a less glamourous but rapidly vanishing world in which two, three, and four-screen theaters ruled the moviegoing landscape.
The Route 17 was closed in January 2006 and demolished in May 2007.
