News About This Theater
Opened June 27, 1973 as a 4-screen theatre and expanded through various renovations and auditorium divisions, it currently stands at 14 screens, 2 of which on the entrance side of the building are “new” - meaning the seats actually have cup holders. The other 12 are traditional big box types, a few have been subdivided, screens 7, 8, and 9 are the largest in the house.
A victim of National Amusements Buckland Hills this theatre was never crowded (unless the picture was sold out at the Palace or Buckland) and would usually show two Indian films (the only cinema in Hartford County to do so regularly).
A former ice cream shop in the cinema now sits closed up. The Showcase Cinemas were closed in 2006 and were demolished in November 2019.
