The Meadowbrook Theatre was once a sizeable single screen cinema with a balcony, which was opened in 1949. On December 16, 1977 three additional screens were built at the rear, making it a quad.

Some time later, the original screen was split down the middle and the balcony was sealed off, due to licencing requirements. On May 29, 1990, the largest of the additional screens was also split in two, making it a 6-screen operation. It was closed on May 9, 2002.

The theatre has been demolished and a bank constructed on the site.

I just came across this page. I worked there when Yvette was supervisor. Also Neil was manager. Oh the fun times when he was there. I loved this job. Working the midnight rocky horror shows. I still say this was the best job ever. I say that cause it was always fun. I worked concession mostly. I had some really good friends id like to find. Thats kinda how I came across this. Tall blonde John. And Rich i think his last name was dorfman. Id love to be in touch with yvette. Kept in touch for a while. She used to also work as an extra in commericial or even movies n wonder if she continued. I. Worked there when i was 17.. 1987- not sure when I left. I saw the one pic on here of yvette. Katie etc. The one pic that has two people in it kinda looks like me. I think Rob posted those pictures. Does anyone touch with anyone from 87 on till yvette left. Please contact me. Id love to get in touch with my fellow co workers we had so much fun. Never seemed like work to me. :)
