Located in what was then called the Derrytown Mall (now known as the The Cocoaplex Center) the Gallery Theatre opened in 1972 by local Hershey resident Donald Erwin. It was a storefront operation and one of the first tenants in the shopping plex. I believe the opening attraction may have been “The Godfather”.

In 1975 the Gallery Theatre was sold to Marv Troutman who ran a small chain of Central Pennsylvania theatres and the name was changed to The Derry Theatre.

Troutman sold to another operator about 1985 and the theatre closed sometime either in 1988 or 1989 when it was converted to retail space.
