News About This Theater
- Nov 9, 2004 — The Hollywood Theater Returns
I don’t remember much about this theatre. By 1941 the Hollywood Theatre was operated by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. In the 1970’s I was visiting a great aunt in West Orange, and my family went into downtown Orange to see “The Man Who Would be King” at this theatre.
The outside had a Spanish style facade, and all I remember about the interior was the glass partition at the rear of the orchestra section. It was held together with nicely detailed brass posts, and was obviously there as a remnant of the days when the theatre would be sold out to “standing room only”.
The Hollywood Theatre was gutted and transformed into a five-screen movie house, the Hollywood Cinemas, which opened in August 2005.
The Hollywood Cinemas were suddenly closed in September 2007.
