Located in the Todd Mart Shopping Center. This theatre in the Henrietta section of Rochester opened February 9, 1972 as a “butterfly” twin (what GCC called a back-to-back twin with the lobby in the middle – the layout on the blueprints looked like a butterfly). This one had about 600 seats in each auditorium. Again, the standard William Riseman treatment, but the lobby here was only one and a half stories high. It had these unusual 4'x4' inverted pyramid-shaped ceiling panels that were kind of interesting, and a Habitat Dome-Sphere chandelier hanging in the middle of the lobby near the entrance.
As I recall there was no marquee, only the serif-style ‘Cinema I & II’ letters, in white instead of red, mounted on a dark wood plank paneled facade, though a pylon may have been installed later. When I was there in February 1972 it had just opened a few weeks before, and the opening manager was from the nearby closed-for-the-season Empire Drive-In.
It was closed on March 31, 1988 with “Shoot to Kill” & “Switching Channels”.
