I found this in a 1970’s Cinemette theater directory. I don’t have an opening or closing date.

The address is actually 332 Fifth Avenue, McKeesport, PA 15132. It was closed by Cinemette, then re-opened for a few years by Mini-Cinemas. This theatre was built in 1970 as the basement level of the Executive Building, and unfortunately had water leaks due to bad waterproofing or some other construction problem. Seems that when the water level would rise in the ground at times it would leak into the auditoriums and collect at the screens and back exit. Still was a cool place to work. The booth and most fixtures were removed and used at Cinema World on Rt. 30 in Irwin in the early 80’s. The Quad name was finally removed from the Executive Building entrance, but the marquee remains (without the plastic reader boards).
