The Village Theatre might have been listed as an independent house in the newspapers before 1981, but before the end of 1977 it had already been taken over by Metropolitan Theatres. It was Metropolitan that twinned the Village and Plaza Theatres in 1977, as noted in this brief article in Boxoffice of January 2, 1978. The article features a drawing of the twinned auditorium of the Plaza, but says that the Village got new carpeting, draperies, and lobby treatment. Both houses got all new projection and sound equipment. Both theaters reopened shortly before Christmas, 1977.
