Loew’s never operated the Genito. It was built and originally operated by Cineplex-Odeon.

Opening date was February 17, 1989. The building had 2336 total seats, calculated to make it just barely the largest theater in the area at the time, and used Dolby Stereo with platters/automation. “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” “The Naked Gun,” “The Accused,” “A Cry in the Dark,” and “Gorillas in the Mist” played opening day.

The last day of operation was January 18, 2001 with “What Women Want,” “The Family Man,” “102 Dalmatians,” “Dracula 2000” and “Dude, Where’s My Car?” The theater lost most of its business to the Commonwealth after summer 2000. The owners may have also been concerned about further competition from a rumored AMC multiplex in the Winterpock area which came close to being built around the same time but ultimately did not materialize.

The building is still there and has been used as a church since the end of its time as a movie theater.
