This theatre was twinned in 1975 by General Cinema. I know this because its sister twin in Old Bridge N.J. (then Madison Twp.) the Madison Cinema was twinned at the same time. I don’t know how the Arcadian turned out, but the Madison became two long narrow theatres with 400 seats each, and the screens were only about 18 feet wide, with a projection throw of about 85 feet. Horrible to watch any movie there. Madison was demolished in 1989.
