I was the manager of the Oakdale Mall Cinemas from 1990-1993. Theater 1 (333 seats) had a curtain that opened from the center, and theaters 2 (294) and 3 (289) had curtains that opened from left to right. It was the Bighhamton area’s busiest theater until Loews built the Town Square 9 which opened in November 1993. The Oakdale Mall Cinemas first opened in 1975. Loews was not the final operator of this house—when they gave it up in the late 90’s, and independent operator ran it for a bit as a subrun before giving up. The theater is still sitting there empty, used for storage by the mall. It is located inside the mall and is not a freestanding building.

I was a college student in Binghamton from 1981 to 1985 and saw many films at Oakdale. But my strongest memory from Oakdale was seeing a matinee of John Sayle’s Eight Men Out in the late 1980’s and being the only person in the theater. I just hope the other 2 screens had some customers at the time!
