This was part of the infamous Tony Rand Theatres Circuit launching as Loehmann’s Plaza V in December of 1986 and renamed with the center to the Market Street Cinema. Rand Theatres were accused of not paying proper revenue to all major studios late in 1989 leaving them with the oddest bookings from studios who are largely forgotten today. The Market Street closed in December of that year playing just one film – unable to get product for its other four screens – as the entire 126 screen circuit was shuttered for non-payment of taxes. The theatre had a good run as an art house following a budget theatre run.
