Kingsley Twin opened with Dino DeLaurentis “King Kong”. Theatre seated about 500 in each of the two theatres. Stayed around long enough to help the Orange Park Five Theatres at the Orange Park Mall put the Village Cinema Twin Theatre in uptown Orange Park out of business. General Cinema 4-Plex opened across the street from the mall and helped submarine the Kingsley Twin. Shortly after the Movies 10 of Orange Park (a United Artists theatre) opened near I-295, the General Cinema 4 was closed, demolished and turned into a Toys R Us. The Orange Park Five Theaters became a mega-plex of 20+ screens and is now the only theater in Orange Park as of 2008.
A Movie Stop sits on the property now along with Starbucks, Applebees, etc. I like to walk around the Movie Stop with my friends and say, “Hey, I saw that here.”
