Wayne Movietown (Official)
Architects: Drew Eberson
Previous Names: Skouras-Wayne Theatre, UA The Movies at the Wayne Theatre, UA Wayne Quad, Preakness 4, Bow-Tie Wayne Preakness Cinemas
Located in the Preakness Shopping Center. The Skouras-Wayne Theatre was opened on January 8, 1965 with Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin in “Two For Texas”. All seating was on a single floor. On July 25, 1986 it was renamed UA The Movies at the Wayne Theatre. Two more screens were added in October 31, 1986. I used to go to this theatre when I used to live in the Clifton area and hung out with my stepmom. Among the movies I saw at this theatre were kid stuff like “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Bean”, and sci-fi stuff like “Star Trek: First Contact”. The theatre usually has some of the longest lines I ever saw. Today it still survives as a cinema despite competition from the AMC Loews Wayne Theatre and the much smaller Valleyview Cinemas. In June 2013, Bow-Tie Cinemas took over, when they took the Clearview locations. In 2019 it was taken over by an independent operator and renamed Wayne Movietown.
It was closed on March 17, 2020 due to Covid-19 pandemic.
