would anyone happen to have photos of this theater? now that the galleria mall is due to be demolished it would be nice to have a photo from the early days of this mall.

The Galleria Cinema opened on December 19th, 1980 and closed in May 1990. Grand opening ad posted.

As a kid, this was the only White Plains movie theater I had visited since most of the others, with a couple of exceptions, were closed by the time my family and I moved here. I saw many movies at this place, including Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Revenge of the Nerds, the first R-rated movie I was ever allowed to see on the big screen, an experience I’ll never forget, LOL, Gremlins, War Games, Max Dugan Returns, Creepshow 2, Back to the Future Part III, and too many other titles to mention here. There wasn’t anything distinctive about it, but both auditoriums had plenty of seats and big enough screens, including Dolby Stereo capability in Cinema 1 I think. Sadly it attracted a lot of less than desirable clientele as I got older, as did the Galleria Mall in general, which is probably why it closed in the early 1990s. But it was definitely a fun place to go to the movies while it lasted.

Misinformation here. I worked at the Herman’s and the Twin was to the right of the Sporting Goods store. There may have been a space in-between as well. Regardless, it was a cute cinema, never very popular. For some reason, the only movie I recall seeing here is Outrageous Fortune

That’s so funny – I saw 9 to 5 at this cinema, too. I feel like I also saw the Prisoner of Zenda here starring Peter Sellers.

It opened and closed as a twin. After it shut down it became a Herman’s Sporting Goods store, and now serves as a Todai Seafood Buffet.
