News About This Theater
The Golf Mill Theater opened on December 28, 1961 with Jerry Lewis in “The Errand Boy”. The opening was two years after the adjacent shopping center of the same name opened. Originally a single screen theatre, seating over 1,800.
Costing nearly $2 million to construct, the Golf Mill Theater was Kennedy-era modern but still had elegant touches, like a long, airy lobby complete with sunken lounge areas with sofas and large metal fireplaces.
In 1969, the large auditorium with its vast 50 by 22 foot screen was twinned and the theatre became the Golf Mill I & II.
In 1973, the theatre was triplexed, becoming the Golf Mill Theatres 1-2-3.
With both declining attendance due to larger and more modern theaters sprouting up nearby, as well as the declining shape of the Golf Mill in general, Cineplex Odeon, which operated the theatre in its last few years, closed the nearly four-decade old movie house in 2000.
In early-2003, the Golf Mill was completely gutted and converted into a fitness center.
