The Edgewater Plaza Twin Cinema was opened by Ogden Perry Theatres around 1964 or 1965 in Edgewater Shopping Center. It was a white brick building with about six steps leading up to its entrance and boxoffice. It was very popular theatre, located between Biloxi and Gulfport, it operated until about 1976 and was closed and demolished.

Around 1975, they had added two more screens which were located in a small theatre inside the shopping center itself, and were not as popular. This part of the theatre was operated by United Artists Theatres until the mid-1990’s. It was closed and demolished during the remodeling of the shopping center.

Just a little correction. The outside theater was open until the mid-1990’s. I was a regular there and I even had a huge group of people with me to the opening of “Batman” in 1989 and “Batman Returns” in 1992. The inside theater was open longer. It survived the mall’s initial remodel and was open until almost 2000. My ex-wife worked at Waldenbooks just three units down from it until 1993 and it was there for quite a while after that.
