This 8-plex shut down on February 3rd, 2019 after being served a cease and desist order from The Town of Poughkeepsie. Heating problems were cited as the cause for the order. The theatre’s website has been shut down and the closure appears to be permanent this time.

Jackinidana that’s sad to hear another 1970’s cinema shutting down!

Very sad indeed Dansdriveintheater. This was a first run sixplex when it opened in December 1984 and I recall it was quite an event. It was Dutchess County NY’s first new multiplex, whereas the other 2-3-4 screen complexes were all subdivided existing theatres.

I remember this becoming the most popular theater in the area when it opened, which I’m surprised to learn wasn’t until 1984, the mall having been open for some time at that point. I remember it having the name Cines 8 for some time. It played a valued role as a bargain theater for decades after the Galleria theater (almost visible from the parking lot) stole the limelight.
