Opened October 12, 1961 with Kirk Douglas in “Spartacus”. This large theatre sat at the corner of US Route 1 and Parsonage Road in Edison, outside the Menlo Park Mall. It was one of Northern New Jersey’s large, prestigious theatres. It played exclusive engagements of both “Star Wars” and “The Empire Strikes Back”, the latter in 70mm. It was twinned November 2, 1976. It was closed on November 30, 1991.
It was demolished after Cineplex Odeon opened a 12-screen multiplex theatre in the newly rebuilt Menlo Park Mall around late-1991.
