Main Street Cinema

The Main Street Cinema was a small theatre which had its entrance located between the RKO Proctors Theatre and the Town Theatre. It was opened May 11, 1970 with Robert Redford in “Tell Them Willy Boy is Here”. It was created out of the stage of the RKO Proctors Theatre (then known as the RKO Quad). It apparently lasted into the late-1970’s.

According to the March 16, 1970 Box Office Magazine the 300 seat Main Street was created in conjunction with the ½ million dollar “curb to curb” renovation of the RKO Proctor’s. The decor was oriental red and gold. The preview of the theater occurred on Wednesday, the 11th with a showing of Tell Them Willie Boy is Here.
