Remember seeing some good films here in the 80s and early 90s: Pete’s Dragon, Rocky III, Grease 2, Risky Business, Iron Eagle, Octopussy, A Christmas Story, Wild at Heart, Batman. The last movie I saw at this theater was Pulp Fiction. The place was SO run down at this point, very creepy. I don’t think they ever ran 70mm presentations of anything back in the day but the place was ok for its time and of course it was right next door to Chuckie Cheeses.

I was startled to see how badly this theater fell into disrepair. Town Center was a classy place to see a movie back in the 80s and early 90s. I saw some amazing 70mm presentations there as a kid including: Return of the Jedi, Star Trek II-IV, Platoon, The Mission, and Lethal Weapon 2. Cool place. Classy. Sad to learn of its premature demise.

Cinema Center at Harbor and Adams will live in my mind until the day I die. If you drive past the now vacant, fenced in lot next to the CVS drive thru pharmacy you just might catch sight of me dropping off popcorn and candy in loving memory, maybe dumping a 40 dog of Malt liquor into the dry, cracked earth. As a kid I remember seeing some real classics there with my mom including: Stripes, For Your Eyes Only, Easy Money, Vacation, Airplane 2, A Christmas Story, Gremlins, Halloween III Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, just to name a few. Around 1986 I began hanging out there with my junior high friends just about every Friday night, drinking and smoking and watching the latest flick. This was the place to go back in the day. Big nights included: A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 and 3, Pretty in Pink, Cobra, Back to School, Weird Science, Aliens, and a couple of the Friday the 13th installments. Then the Charter Center opened in Huntington and the crowds of my classmates thinned, I think the last movie I saw there was Basic Instinct. Every time I pop in a DVD from that era it takes me right back to that theater. Love it. Miss it.

This place went to seed by the mid 80s but I do have fond memories of great double features back then including Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom w/ Ghostbusters and Weird Science w/ Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. Good times. I’ll always remember one of the screens, I think in cinema 3, had a two foot gash in the bottom right corner that always bugged the hell out of me.
