Located in the Redstone Shopping Center. Originally a duckpond bowling alley. General Cinemas opened this single screen cinema on May 1, 1967. It opened as a single screen with 1,200 seats. It was twinned in the 1970’s, and then changed hands to an independent operator before closing in the early-1990’s. It became a Shaw’s supermarket, which had closed by 2018.

Many earlier comments about this cinema are on the page of the nearby (and separate) Stoneham Theatre.

I can’t remember for sure — after GCC got rid of this, was it called Stoneham Flick for a while?

I need some help. Where does the name Redstone come from. I thought it might be from the owner of National amusements Sumner Redstone that may have had an interest in the cinema at the Redstone Plaza. Now that I read your post above, I see that may not be true. Anyone know where the name comes from?

To answer Kevinm2017’s question: The Stoneham Cinema was located in the Redstone Shopping Center in Stoneham. “Redstone” has nothing to do with Sumner Redstone or National Amusements. Presumably, the name has to do with the fact that the shopping plaza is located very close to the municipal line separating Reading and Stoneham, on route 28.
