This was formerly the Imperial Cinemas that opened on December 23,1977. It was the town’s first multiplex cinema under Fairlane-Litchfeld Theatres. United Artists took over the operations of the Imperial Cinemas(at the time was a four screen cinema)during the 1980’s when a major renovation added two new auditoriums making it the Imperial Cinemas 6 under the UA banner. United Artists closed this theatre in 2000. New York based Madstone Theatres bought this theatre in 2002(renamed it the Madstone 6) which by the way folded in 2004,with Galaxy Cinemas took over in 2004 and change the format as a first-run arthouse/indie cinema that specializes in Bollywood and vintage Hollywood classics. Set to closed in 2013.
