The former Loews Harmon Cove was opened in 1976, and was subsequently divided into four screens. It had a blank wall facing the street and the entrance and parking was around in the back, not easy to find. Its off-the-beaten-path location was probably the reason Loews built a six-plex and eight-plex in newer major shopping areas on the other side of Route 3, and the older quad was closed.

The building was gutted and is now ‘The Outlets at the Cove’, a group of four outlet stores with a cafe. The pylon sign is still standing at the intersection of Route 3 and Meadowlands Parkway, advertising the outlet stores.

From Loew’s 1982 annual report:

“During 1982 the [Theatres] Division added seventeen new screens in three ultra-modem complexes. Our new theatres, featuring spacious lobbies with giant refreshment centers, and large, wide auditoriums with wall-to-wall screens, which our research indicates the public prefers, have met with great acceptance.

“In the fast-growing Houston suburbs, a five- screen complex was opened in the exclusive Southpoint Center. A six-screen free-standing building was constructed opposite New Jersey’s mammoth shopping center, Willowbrook Mall, and another six-screen theatre is the focal point of the Harmon Meadow complex of shops, hotel, restaurants and office buildings located within sight of the New Jersey Meadowlands sports complex.”

“The town (Secaucus) did not have a movie theater until Loews built in 1976 on Meadowlands Parkway"

the first movie theater in Secaucus was called the Plaza theater, which is also on cinema treasures. It seated 400. Was it also owned by Loews?

The first film to play the Harmon Cove was “King Kong” (Jessica Lange version) in December 1976. It was exciting to attend that opening night because it was the first completely new theater I’d ever been to.

“Blade Runner” in June 1982 was the first attraction at the Loew’s Meadows 6, which replaced the Harmon Cove along with the even-bigger Loew’s Meadows 8 a few years later, so I figure the Harmon Cove must have closed around this same time.
