No one has favorited this theater yet
Built by Trans-Lux Theatres of New York, the Trans-Lux in the rear of the Lebanon Plaza Shopping Center opened on February 7, 1968 with “The Graduate”. A nice shopping center theatre with about 800 seats, the projection booth had 2 Cinemecanica Vic 8’s.
Around 1975 it was twinned. In the late-1970’s the theatre was sold to Fox Theatres of Reading, PA who changed the name to the Howard Twin (named after Dick Fox’s deceased grandson). Fox proceeded to let this nice theatre deteriorate.
In the early-1990’s Fox sold all its theatres (including the Howard Twin) to Carmike who proceeded to run what was left of the Howard Twin completely into the ground. The Howard Twin closed in 1998 follwing Carmike’s bankruptcy by which time the roof was leaking so badly the interior side walls were stained. The Howard Twin sat empty until 2003 when it was demolished.
