Opened by SBC as a four-plex in approximately 1974, this theatre was built as a reverse mirror image of the Cine 4 in Colonie, NY.
Screens 5 and 6 were added in 1980 with 7 and 8 following a few years later.
All houses had curved, ‘floating’ screens and Ballantyne of Omaha projectors driven by Christie platters, an SBC staple.
Auditoriums featured American rocker recliners, red floor to ceiling drapes and no screen masking, relying on precise fit aperature plates.
Computerized ticketing was added in approximately 1982.
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” was played on Friday and Saturday nights beginning in 1979. At that time, midnight shows on the remaining three screens were also begun.
Hoyts acquired this property with the 1986 purchase of the SBC chain and operated until its closing in 1998.
