The cinema opened in early 1966. Going for the first time it appeared modernistic with its blue light showing on the screen as my family seated ourselves. We saw a double bill of SHIP OF FOOLS and CAT BALLOU. The first film shown there was A PATCH OF BLUE.

The Mall opened in 1962. Did the cinema also opened at this time?

It was a three-screen by the mid-1970’s and latter a forth was added.

Saw STAR WARS there 7 times in 1977

The status of this cinema should also be changed to “Closed/Demolished” as it is long gone.

I think the one I am thinking of is University Cinemas.

I saw the full parking lot of S & S about 2 weeks before. Didn’t drive past the nonexistent Boulevard, but did drive past the other nonexistent (now Red Robin restaurant) theater in the neighborhood. I don’t know why, but I miss the old GCC cinemas.

Good news Paul, the Scotch & Sirloin Restaurant is STILL in business — I just came back from Buffalo last week. However, the Boulevard Cinemas have yet to make a reappearance!

I had a great steak there 20 years ago. On Memorial Day S&S looked closed, but their website is still up. It could have just been the day, as other normally open restaurants were closed. I’m not often in that area, so I don’t know what their status is. 20 years ago? Now i feel old.

Basically correct – it shared the north end of that block on Maple with the Scotch & Sirloin Restaurant which, I believe, is still operating there today — great Alaskian King Crab !!

If it is where I think it was, it wasn’t attached to the mall, but across the street. Wegman’s supermarket is there now.

Where within the mall was the Cinema located?

Theatre was actually located on Maple Road and Alberta Drive in Amherst, NY, a Buffalo suburb.

Saturday morning matinees in the mid-1960’s were $1 for a 1930’s-style show with several cartoons, a serial (Flash Gordon, etc) and a feature…and parents enjoyed a few hours of babysitting.
