Movies at Midway

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Operated by Atlantic Theatres, Movies at Medway is a multiplex anchoring an equally bland strip mall on Highway One (Coastal Highway at Melson Road). Located at 29 Midway Shopping Center, it offers the locals an offering of just about any major release along with an occasional art film.

Previously, Midway Enterprises operated a twin theatre at this site, which by 1990 was a seven screener. By September 1998, the theatre was called the Midway Palace Theatre and had seven screens with a total of 1,097 seats. Most of the complex was torn down in September 1998.

The theatre was rebuilt and opened as the Movies at Midway in May 1999 with fourteen auditoriums totaling 2,153 seats.

Here’s John Coursey’s recent photo of the Movies at Midway, which inspired its addition to this website & our quest to discover its history:

Old address, 29 Midway Shopping Center, Highway One, on the Google Map, shows the southern United States and Central America, not very helpful. With the new address the theater is straight east of the red dot, it is the building with the white roof.

Open in 2003?

Anyone have more info or interior photos?

Thank’s Howard for the photo. There are no scrolling LED marquees here. It looks like ABC Sign Co. were stuck with these and sold them cheap to Atlantic Theaters. Yuk!
