was this the theater that used to have a shoe town in front of it? There also was a Jamesway years ago in the shopping center attached. I remember it being called the Freehold Quad at one point and I saw Raiders of the Lost Arc and BLowout. It was a moldy theater from what I remember back in the early 80’s.

I remember being about five years old and seeing King Kong in this theater back in early 1977. Great memories seeing my first horror film on the big screen. Remember the lobby having a poster of Kong right after Christmas and they had the ape holding a candy cane and wearing a Christmas hat. Thanks again MattGlynn for reminding me of this theater.

Does anyone recall if this is the twin theater in staten island that showed Mary Poppins back in the Mid 1970’s??? I also remember the chaos of when Jaws was at this theater and yes it was a nightmare but what an exciting movie to see when you are a kid.

Thanks Mattglynn for responding to my post about the King Kong 1976 movie showing at The Lane in New Dorp. Yes, I do remember now because I saw it in early January of 1977, and in the lobby they had a poster that said King Kong for Christmas and he was holding a candy cane in one hand and they put a Christmas hat on him. It was really funny and when you are a kid you remember the silliest details about your first horror film. I am pretty sure that the Mary Poppins film was shown at the UA Cinema in the mid 70’s but still can’t confirm…if anyone remembers would appreciate any info you may have. Thanks again. :)

Does anyone know if this is the theater that showed King Kong back in 1976/1977? I went there when I was 5 years old but I can’t recall if it was in this movie house or the UA theater in Staten Island. Also does anyone remember the rerelease of Mary Poppins in the mid 1970’s? Was that in this theater or the UA? Hope someone out there remembers. thanks
