This was a standard concrete 1970’s cinema. It had two screens and then split to four. It was located in Standish Plaza, off of Route 44 near Route 3, next to the former department store chain Richs.

It was managed most of its tenure by Harrison Griffon and Emma "Sis" Reed. Griffon retired and management was by Jon Cavicchi, Anne Woodward and Evelyn Mitchell.

The cinema was acquired by Hoyts. The week the Independence Mall Cinema opened in nearby town of Kingston, the last picture show was held the week the new theatre opened. Cavicchi and staff moved to the Kingston location as staff for many years. The last remaining Standish Plaza cinema employee is Anne Woodward, manager at the Independence Mall Cinemas owned now by Regal.

I spent my summers growing up in nearby Manomet and saw many films there. I saw Star Wars for the first time (of many) here, in July 1977, when it was a two screen theater.
Off the top of my head, I know I saw the following films during my years growing up here: The Empire Strikes Back, Cujo, Wargames, Octopussy, Back To The Future, Mad Max-Beyond Thunderdome, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Die Hard and The Dead Pool.
I also worked for one day as a projectionist-trainee in the early Summer 1987 when they were showing Dragnet. They had a platter system.
