The Townline Plaza opened in 1974 anchored by a W.T. Grant Grantland store, an A&P Grocery Store, and a New Breed Cinema. The theatre launched December 20, 1974 with “The Sting” and a no X-rated film policy. In May of 1976, New Breed Cinema was no more and new operators renamed the complex the Townline Cinema.
The new operators played G-rated films through the 7pm show and then X-rated films thereafter. This led to some very unusual bookings. For the weekend of May 28-30, 1976, six showings of Disney’s “Ride a Wild Pony” and Disney’s “Dumbo” played into the evening followed by two showings in the same auditorium of the X-Rated “Milk Lady”.
But the eight showings a day whittled down to just one in the video era and the Townline Cinema appears to have closed November 9, 1990.
