Previously operated by: General Cinema Corp.
This nondescript two screen theater was situated in a small shopping center that was located at the intersection of Winter Street and Route 128 in Waltham. The Waltham Cinema was part of a small chain of discount houses (showing second runs only) in the Boston area owned by General Cinema. This cinema opened May 26, 1971. I remember seeing “Fiddler on the Roof” there when the cinema was considered relatively new.
As with many discount houses showing second runs, the Waltham cinema didn’t survive the advent of home video and closed in the early-1980’s. Part of the cinema’s space was ironically taken over by a video store called Instant Replay.
The shopping center was demolished in the late-1980’s/early-1990’s (replaced by another shopping center).
