When this theatre opened in 2002 as part of the new Jamaica Center it gave the area it’s first theatre again since the RKO Alden closed in the Eighties. Jamaica is an area that once had almost twenty theatres in the vicinity including one of the Loew’s Wonder Theatres, the Valencia.

I complained to National Amusement’s HQ telling them about my experiences at the Concession Stand with the workers, and with the doorman who if you ask where to go just nods his head. I never got a response back from them. It’s sad because the theatre is near to where I live. Due to these experiences I’ll be forced to travel to other theatres, unless I hear that they’ve changed. Which I doubt. National Amusements use to maintain their theatres now they’re only care about their “de lux” or “premium theatres” in which more than the theatre is found in the building.

Lefty, you are right. NA used to really take care of their theaters, but like you said, now that they have begun to build the “delux” ones, those apparently are the ones they are focusing on, and forgetting the older ones.

WHY IS THAT EVERYTIME I ARRIVE AT JAMAICA MUTIPLEX THE ESCALATOR IS INOPERABLE. IN THE PAST MONTH, I WENT TO JAMAICA MUTIPLEX ON THREE OCASSIONS EACH TIME THE ESCALATOR WAS INOPERABLE AND MY FAMILY AND I HAD TO WALK UP APPROXIMATELY 50 STAIRS TO SEE THE MOVIE. THE 1ST 2TIMES I WALKED UP THE STAIRS BUT, ON THE LAST OCASSION I DECIDED TO TAKE MY FAMILY ELSEWHERE. I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS WOULD HAPPEN IN ANY OTHER COMMUNITY BUT, BECAUSE THIS IS A PREDOMINATELY BLACK COMMUNITY THIS IS HAPPENING. I AM APPALLED AT THESE CONDITIONS AND HOPE THEY WILL BE RECTIFIED IN A TIMELY FASHION. UNTIL THEN I WILL NOT BE RETURNING TO THIS THEATRE NOR MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

This site is not connected with the management of the Jamaica Center multiplex. You should probably take it up with them, not here, as no one here has any connection to this theater whatsoever.

Thanks, Lost Memory.

Agreed, Warren. The repetition of “Jamaica” seems redundant and unnecessary.

I wonder why they don’t just call it Jamaica Center Multiplex Cinemas!

That’s a good idea, Bway. Perhaps you should suggest it to the management.
