On the Rave site the theater is called RC Enfield 12.

No, that was not its predecessor. Its predecessor was an 8-plex on Hazard Ave. The former “Enfield Cinema” was the Strand Theatre whichis still sitting abandoned and derelict 30 years later.

This appears to be a predecessor:

Town to Buy Porn Theater?

The Planning and Zoning Commission decided Thursday to recommend that the town acquire the Enfield Cinema with redevelopment funds so that the “adult-fare” movie theater can be torn down to provide much-needed parking in the Thompsonville renewal area. Angry commission members also asked to meet June 2 with the town’s Redevelopment Agency, saying they were tired of the agency’s eleventh-hour pleas for hasty approval of urban-renewal project plans.

The PZC was also upset st apparent inequities in the redevelopment
agency’s acquisition of property within the project area. Town Planner Paul Fox said the agency could still use Community
Development Act funds intended for buying land in the Pleasant-
Whitworth renewal project to buy the Enfield Cinema. The theater, whose skin flicks attract dozens of patrons daily, is the major block to providing adequate parking, Fox said.

Despite the ERA’s earlier assurances that all renewal area tenants
would have ample parking, officials acknowledged last month that it
has provided no parking facilities for the theater and its customers.
Fox told commissioners it is a “physical impossibility” for the ERA
to provide adequate parking within the renewal area.

Hoyts had a weird contruction flaw that I’ve noticed in this and the almost idenitical looking Simsbury Commons 8- the large theatres feature true stadium seating, while the smaller cinemas (in the back of both buildings) feature half-risers. Yet, the screens are roughly around the same height, making for an awkard experience in those smaller houses, and the seats don’t tilt back.

This theatre is okay, better now that N/A owns it.

This theatre was recently bought by National Amusements. It had previously been operated by Hoyts and was known as the Enfield Square 12. Hardly a cinema “treasure” it is a modern, boring mallplex.
