Viewing: Photo | Street View

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.

The building containing the mutliplex can be seen in the photo. If there weren’t signs outside, one would mistake it for just another shopping mall. At least when you see the relics of nearby Loew’s Valencia, the RKO Alden, and Skouras Merrick, you know that theatres once operated there…According to advertising in today’s newspapers, it’s called Jamaica Multiplex Cinemas @ Jamaica Center. What a mouthful!

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.

Peter, if you do a Google search of Sumner Redstone, you will certainly find more than you even need to know about him as one of the most powerful people in the entertainment business today. I’m truly surprised that you had to ask. His name is constantly in the news.
