Handbill, UNITED ARTISTS CINEMA Theatre; Kenosha, Wisconsin, 1979.

The Cinema 50 was a second and first run movie theater before closing in 2001. Before then, it was UA Cinemas 5, and showed first-run films.

In November 2003, the Cinema 50 was torn down.

As of November 19th, 2003 the Cinema 50 has been demolished to make way for a new Pick ‘N Save food store.

I remember fondly waiting in line for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. You knew a movie was good if the line wrapped around the corner.

When was this place built/opened?

THE ADDRESS SHOULD BE 7310 57th Street (that’s on 50 therefore Cinema 50).
The theater opened as a twin in 1972 and three more theaters were added in 1980.

Its original name was “UA Cinemas 1&2” – the word “Cinema” was on the building since it was built – numbers and letters were removed over the years until it was torn down. I saw a lot of movies there in my lifetime. The best theaters were the original two- the others were much smaller but not bad really. It was really run down toward the end though.

I heard from a patron who said he attended the new UA Cinemas 1&2 on its grand opening, Christmas Day 1971. The features were “The French Connection” and a revival of “Lady and the Tramp”, and there were long lines, as one might imagine.
