The former Loew’s Georgetowne Twins was a modern twin theatre which opened on August 14, 1970 with Elliott Gould in “Getting Straight” with the movie playing on both screens. It was the first twin theatre to operate in Brooklyn, and was part of the Georgetowne shopping center on Ralph Avenue. The two large theatres were piggy-backed and for years showcased first-run movies. A large mural in the foyer measured 14ft x 50ft and depicted ‘a melange of portraits of movie stars of the past’. It was the work of artist Patrick Casey of Rochester, NY.
On October 21, 1993 Loew’s closed the twin. Part of the building was then converted to retail space and became a Party Warehouse. Yet for years, nothing was done to the two-storied glass entrance and the space inside, which still looked the same as when it was a movie theatre.
