This was 1 of 2 theatres Redstone Theatres [National Amusements] opened on 12/7/1979, the other being the Amboy Multiplex Cinemas in Sayerville, NJ [Ad listed that theatre as Amboy Cinemas]

Opened as Showcase Cinemas North on December 7th, 1979. Showcase left the theatre as a 30-year lease was due to expire. Rave Motion Pictures Circuit took on it and the Showcase West location. The name here officially changed to the Rave Motion Pictures Pittsburgh North 11 on April 29, 2010. However, it was almost exclusively listed as Rave Cinemas Pittsburgh North 11 for its 2010-2012 existence likely making use of some existing signage.

In 2012, Cinemark purchased Rave and acquired the venue. Cinemark would officially change names here on July 4, 2013 to the Cinemark Pittsburgh North 11. It closed under that name in 2015.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette announced today that this location would be closing after business on 5/14/15. Sad. No more Showcases in Pittsburgh.

The prospects for this theater’s continued survival may have been dimmed by the announcement that Cinemark plans to open a new multiplex nearby: View link

The multiplex is outside the Pittsburgh city limits in McCandless Township. Of the original eight auditoriums, two had 480 seats and the other six had 540 seats.
