The Mid-Valley Cinema, as it was known when it opened, was part of a shopping mall that offered JC Penney and Grand Union as anchors.
It’s grand opening feature was “The Sound of Music”, which played for close to 6 months. The mall itself was a semi-enclosed mall, and the theatre proper offered a large lobby, a long walk from the front door to the b.o.
Throughout the ‘60’s-'70’s, the cinema offered first-run features such as “The Sand Pebbles”, “Easy Rider”,“Rosemary’s Baby”, “The Detective” (Sinatra),“Bullett”, “The Odd Couple”, “Butch Cassidy”, “Midnight Cowboy” (X rated, difficult time getting in)and “Diamonds Are Forever”

This theatre should not be listed as demolished. It was gutted, but still stands. My 2012 photos are at http://www.cinematour.com/tour/us/22478.html

After opening the Squire Cinema across town in New Windsor I opened this theatre in 1967. We did play “Music” but it was not the opening feature. We played it after Poughkeepsie, NY. We played the indoor theatres day-and-date with our Brookside Drive-In in the summer. I also opened the “Quickway Cinema” in Chester, NY.

All were sold to Cinecom Theatres in 1969

Twinned in November 1979. The Mid-Valley Cinema closed during the first week of February 1987 when UA opened the nearby 10-screen theater.
