I started going here after the Neptune City Theater became too sketchy, around 1985. My friends mom took us to see Star Wars here. In ‘86, my first solo trip to the movies was here to see 'The Color Purple". It was my first 'cineplex’ experience. All the new movies played at Seaview Square and was within walking distance from the mall. The big differences were the film quality and ticket price, compared to Neptune City. Oh, and also one’s personal safety.
Yes, Neptune City Theater!! I used to go there with my big sister. It was a win-win for us. She’d get to drive mom’s car to go hang out her friends and I’d get to watch some wholly inappropriate movies. I went there from 1979-85. As a 10yr old, being there was an adventure. I grew up during its' decline. By ‘85, there were 'Enter At Your Own Risk’ signs posted in the lobby. I’ll never forget the movies. CHUDS, Used Cars and pretty much every Blaxploitation flick ever. Wow…cheers!
