PatriciaCarol:

I received the information through my e-mail regarding the opening of the Union Square Cinemas. Thank you.

I am that librarian! I have not been able to find when this theatre opened but it looks like it closed in 1988. raysson, tomorrow I will send you the text of an article from 1991 that I did find for the opening of the Union Square Cinemas (8-plex) by Consolidated Theatres that will help with that history.

I have contacted the head branch of the Union County Library’s research information via-e mail there in Monroe and she is researching the information on when this cinema actually opened. Sources tell me that this cinema opened either early-1974, Between October and December of 1974, or Early-1975. I’ll let you know and keep you posted on what she finds. It originally opened as a twin theater before it expanded to four screens by the mid-1980’s.

Yes but too much trouble to change – seems like once it is posted, it is posted. My mistake – but my belief now is that it did open as a twin and slowly the other two came along. Honestly, I don’t think anyone really cares about this movie theatre (and I’m not meaning to be uncaring). Most around here don’t even remember it and it hasn’t been gone that long – then again, 20+ years is a long time when you think about it, so let’s not think about it.

Very cluttered, wasn’t it?

Don’t like all those Stores on the front of the marquee.

At the time of this 1986 photo it was a four-plex.

Union Square Cinemas are indeed located across from the mall, only across Dickerson Boulevard instead of 74. (in other words, across from the ‘side’ of the mall) I never attended the Union Village Cinema but remembered seeing it in 1989. I was going by the 1977 Mullin-Kille Monroe City Directory which has it as “Village Twin I and II”. Actually, looking at an ad for the theatre from 1984 shows 4 screens! Must have started as a twin and then each auditorium split??

I fondly recall The Union Village Theatre being a three screen cinema. The theatre closed in 1990 when the Union Station Eight Theatre opened one mile west on Roosevelt Boulevard on Highway 74 which was a strip shopping center directly across from Monroe Mall.
