The Circle Twin Cinema opened for United General Circuit in 1971. The Spanish motif matched the adjoining El Greco Restaurant. It was United General’s tenth theatre and the theatres each seated 250 patrons and was designed to be an automated facility. United was much like the Jerry Lewis Cinema concept in which franchisees bought locations and tried to survive the competition from much more established operators. Music Makers Circuit took on the location and expanded it to a triplex known as the Circle Triplex.

In 1986, the theatre became a 5-screen facility, the Circle Cinema 5 and Music Makers became Loews in November of that year. It was known as the Loews Circle Cinema 5 and Sony Circle Cinema 5 when Loews rebranded as Sony. Sony closed it on January 28, 1998. Cinemagic took over in February initially calling it Cinemagic Theater at Brick before relegating it to discount status. It closed as Cinemagic Discount Theater at Brick on September 28, 2000, final features were Art of War, Autumn in New York, Original Kings of Comedy, The Patriot, Scary Movie and Saving Grace.
