The Hollywood Theatre, one of two theatres in the Pittsburgh suburb of Dormont, stood closed and shuttered in 1998 after screening Paul Newman and Susan Sarandon in “Twilight”. After nine years it re-opened on 30th March 2007 with “Night at the Museum” and “Dreamgirls”.
In 1941, the Hollywood Theatre was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. For many years in the 1950’s and 1960’s the Hollywood Theatre, with its seating capacity of 980, was one of Stanley Warner’s main second-run neighborhood houses in Pittsburgh, and even enjoyed a spell as a first-run house in the late-1960’s. Later on, Associated Theatres bought S-W’s holdings in the area, which were then sold to Cinema World.
The last owner was Rick Stern, whose Cinemagic chain still operates the Denis Theatre, Manor Theatre, and Squirrel Hill Theatre, all of which have been multi-screened and show mostly art and independent films currently.
The Hollywood Theatre was closed on May 25, 2008. On June 27, 2009, the Hollywood Theatre reopened for monthly classic movies. Motion Picture Heritage are the new operators.
