The Cinema I & II was opened August 8, 1969 with Barbra Streisand in “Funny Girl in Screen I and Jack Lemmon in "April Fools” in Screen II. This theatre was on Lake George Road (Route 9) near a go-cart track, game facility and just down the road from a drive-in. It was a cheaply constructed building wherein you could hear the rain on the metal roof in a heavy storm (I seem to recall that part of the original was Quonset style). It added a third screen June 20 1975. Renamed Route 9 Cinemas on February 2, 1979. On June 29, 1979 it expanded to five screens.
Cinema Centers also ran a triple screen in Aviation Mall (about 5 miles south on Route 9) that was raised for the current Aviation Mall 7, run by Regal.
Cinema Centers was purchased by Hoyts US in about 1985.
