Previous Names: Dover Cinema
Built in 1971 as a shopping center showplace by Schwartz Theatres of Dover, Delaware, the Blue Hen Mall Cinema had a giant 60' screen and stadium seating. There were about 200 seats on the main floor and the other 1,000 were all stadium. It had a cry room as well as a seperate deluxe skybox seating (with bar) for special customers. The cry room and skybox had special piped in sound with its own amplicification.
The Blue Hen Mall itself was passed by when the interstate moved. Competition from the better located Dover Mall eventually forced the entire Blue Hen Mall itself to be converted into office space.
The theater stopped showing movies in the early-1980’s after the Schwartz chain was sold to Fox Theatres of Reading, Pennsylvania. The theater itself is still intact and is used sporadically for concerts (usually county and western).
