One other note, the mall’s name was eventually changed to the New Castle Square Mall, reflecting the actually shape of the mall, not the parking lot.

This theater was located inside the Triangle Mall. The mall was named after the triangular-shaped piece of land. The mall contained Grant’s(later becoming Jamesway) on its East entrance and an A&P on its West entrance.

The theater had a sister theater in Newark at the Castle Mall.

Both the Triangle Mall Theater and the Castle Mall Theater played second-run films for $1.00, the price for Friday and Saturday showings woule be $1.50, and then eventually raise all prices to $2.00 before closing up.

I know the 1972 ad states it was operated by “Nation Mini-Theatres”, but by 1978, the company was “Movie Makers”. The theater had a floor-to-ceiling mural that depicted a collage of Hollywood icons.

This was the go to place to see the latest films on the cheap.
