Marley Station Movies

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Movies at Marley Station opened on Friday, June 5, 1987, with a brace of features including "The Untouchables." Seven of the eight screens are typical 1970s-1980s UA "shoeboxes" (oblong rooms with one aisle down the middle), while auditorium #5 has a more traditional two-aisle, three-section layout. UA Marley, like its sister at Golden Ring, had a long run of "Rocky Horror" (1987-1992).

This theater seemed to still do well, despite the presence of two relatively nearby megaplexes (Cinemark’s Arundel Mills and Northeast Theatres' Nursery Road). The Movies at Marley Station was closed on February 22, 2014. It was reopened by Horizon Cinemas on June 20, 2014 as Marley Station Movies.

In 1991, I saw Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country with my friend in what I believe was #5. Compared to my experience at the then THX-certified Union Station’s Grand Theater, the sound and experience here was poor. Since then, I have never been back.

Theatre #5 was usually Marley’s best room…manager Debbie Pearson must have been off her game that night, or there was some sort of problem beyond her control.

6 also wasn’t bad, despite (a) being a shoebox, and (b) being occasionally abused by the “Rocky Horror” cast which resided there.

When “Pet Sematary” opened at Marley in 1988, Pearson decorated the lobby AND house #5 in a graveyard motif, complete with cobwebs, skeletons and foam headstones!

This theatre will reopen in summer 2014 under the management of Horizon Cinemas, run by former J-F Theatres booker Ira Miller.

Theater #5 was definitely the big one and it always had a peculiar smell, like moldy bread. Never did find out why. Maybe it still does. I had completely forgotten about the Rocky Horror screenings.
