Located at the corner of Raymond and Collegeview Ave, directly across the street from Vassar College. Opened with the film Tovarich on Jan 7, 1938 as a single screen, single floor house under the management of Netco Theatres Corporation. Converted to a quad in 1979. Closed in 1990 and gutted to become a pool hall. Building was purchased by Vassar College in 2003, future status TBD, still currently running as a pool hall.

The Juliet Theater was first twinned and was known as the Juliet 1 & 2 for a while. Two additional screens were added in vacant commercial space next door becomming the Juliet Quad.
They were unable to compete after Hoyts opened the Galleria Cinemas 8 in the Galleria Mall(now the Regal Galleria 12, soon to become 16 screens with a total make over with stadium seating this renovation will include new construction) and the existing Hoyts Cine Eight in the South Hills Mall giving Hoyts 16 theaters next door to each other.

I will never forget seeing RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK here in late June 1981, days after it opened. Earlier that day I graduated from middle school (which was hellish) and that night saw my favorite movie ever for the first time. I also remember what an event the December 1979 opening of STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE was at the Juliet. They even ran it on two screens which was a very uncommon practice at the time.
