Millburn Cinema 4, Millburn, NJ

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This is another old New Jersey movie theater that has been operating since the 1920’s, and in 1941 the Millburn Theater was listed as having a seating capacity of 966 and was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp.

It was twinned a long time ago, and one side was "modernized" with false panels and such. The other side of the twinned main theater still shows massive columns and a fake balcony.

I have not been inside in 15 years, and was operated by Cineplex Odeon. Since 1998, it is now a four-screen cinema, first operated by Clearview Cinemas and since June 2013 operated by Bow-Tie Cinemas, as that chain took over most Clearview locations.

I grew up in the neighboring town of Maplewood during the 1960’s and 1970’s and went to the Millburn Theatre (when it was one big theatre) on many occasions. One particular memory I have is going to the Millburn Theatre the night of the great NYC blackout of 1977 (July 13, 1977) with a friend and his parents. While viewing the movie, we were unaware the blackout had happened. I returned home from the movie only then to realize what had occured because the NYC TV stations were not broadcasting. Childhood memories!

They recently updated all their screens and the lobby and the box office window.

Now, they’ve got just a table like marble as the box office, no window. They’ve updated their lobby so it goes all the way from where it used to be to the entrance of the men’s bathroom.

Also, they’ve upgraded all their theaters with new, smooth seats. BUT, this also caused the decrease in leg room for more seats. The arm rests are so small that they only go to my elbow’s. Bad decision on the seats imo.

Been to this theater a few times in the ‘80s. I remember seeing “Rain Man”, “Born on the Fourth of July” and “Desperate Hours” here, a few others but I can’t remember…there used to be an art show event in Millburn not far from this theater in those days and my mother always attended. I’d see a movie to kill the time, as I used to help her.
