This is probably the oldest of the movie theaters around here, and it shows. It is a little musty inside, but it is less costly that the other theaters.

Even though it was a great theater (not fancy) and it needed some renovations, it had good movies playing at an inexpensive price. However, it's gone, unless someone finds the means to make it open again. Sorry to see you go!

Dropped off two teens to see a matinee, only to learn that the movie they wanted to see wasn't being shown as advertised through Fandango. If you're going to link to a web site please get the times right!

I love this theater!! Is it old?? YES! But in my book that just adds to its charm. Are the seats worn? Of course, but it's like sitting in your favorite recliner. They show pretty refine movies for an old time theater however, the prices...More

This is hands down my favorite movie theater. Why? Because it's local, cheaper, non-chain, excellent popcorn, nice staff. True, some of the seats have seen better days, but if a movie is showing at Newark Cinema Center 3 and a mega-plex, I'll ALWAYS choose this...More

This is how movies used to be. The prices are a little better, and the popcorn is great. The theater is getting a little long in the tooth though. Many chairs are tattered, and the bathrooms are very old. And while I think they have...More

3 screens, non-chain. Better prices, better service and a truly large screen. This is how movies were before mega-plexes, .
