News About This Theater

New Park Cinemas

The Park Theatre was opened in 1927. By 1950 it was operated by the Aldon Theater Corp. chain. The New Park Cinemas were closed in February 2010. Under new ownership it was planned to reopen as the Artistica Cinema in 2022, screening classic, independent & revival movies as well as film festivals. That never happened and in March 2023 the building was ‘For Sale’ or ‘To Rent’.

As the only theater in Roselle Park, and with an organ having been installed in 1927, the Park Theatre must have been this project noted in the “Theatres in Construction” column of Variety for December 1, 1926:

“Roselle Park, N. J. — (Also stores, offices). $200,000. Westfleld avenue. Owners. D. Bender and N. Goldine, care of architect, Wm. Friedberg, Newark. N. J. Policy not given.”
Architect Willaim Friedberg opened his office in Newark in 1922, but I’ve been unable to find out anything else about him.

Saw quite a few movies here in the early 90’s. I specifically remember seeing CANDYMAN and EVENT HORIZON. It was a nice theater.

A friend of mine just told me about this. Are you going to reopen as a 5 screen or you going to restore it to one huge theatre?

I wonder how things are going here. Someone asked me the other day if I knew when it was going to open.

A friend drove by yesterday and a for sale or rent sign is on the marquee. Guess they just couldnt make a go of it.
