Opened on March 15, 1927 with Rudolph Valentino on “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”, the Maplewood Theatre began showing movies in addition to live performances in the 1940s.
The theatre was enormous and was one of the largest in New Jersey. It was cut into three and later four screens in the late-1980’s and early-1990’s.
“It is my general recollection however that the extravagent interior is still under modern covering… and a small part of the ceiling (with egg and dart moulding) can be seen peeking out of the dropped ceiling in one of the rooms. It is a candidate for restoration for sure, and it is in a very progressive town that gets behind these sort of things. The theater is still a huge success as a 4-plex and there is little chance of it going out of business.”
