Previous Names: Loew's 167th Street Twins
At one time the busiest theatre south of Washington DC, this twin ran the same film with staggered showtimes for most of it’s lifespan. The Loew’s 167th Street Theatre was opened on June 18, 1969 with Richard Benjamin in “Goodbye Columbus” screening in both auditoriums. In the mid-1970’s, it ran “Love Story”, “The Godfather”, “Paper Moon”, “The Last Picture Show”, “The Way We Were”, and “The Godfather Part II” and never seemed to be aware there was a product shortage. The main screen had 800 seats making the second screen with 400-seats tiny by 1960’s standards, hence the booking policy.
This and the Bay Harbor had a co-owner hence they never became part of the General Cinema sale. It was closed on September 7, 1990 with Mel Gibson in “Air America” & Christian Slater in “Pump Up the Volume”. It was demolished in 1992 and a Pep Boys garage was built on the site.
