Originally intended to be part of the Jerry Lewis Cinemas chain but that went bankrupt before this cinema opened. The Director’s Chair Twin Cinemas was opened on October 10, 1973 with Burt Reynolds in “The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing” & George Segal in “A Touch of Class”. This second run theatre was located behind the Square Center strip mall on Route 33 in Hamilton Square (the one near Trenton, as their are multiple Hamiltons in NJ).
Nothing remarkable about the architecture, just a lot of good memories.
I remember seeing all of the big movies here as a kid such as “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones”. Movies were $2; matinees $1. We could ride our bikes there during the dog days of summer. The theater was active into the mid-1980’s. It survived the opening of the mall theaters first at Quakerbridge Mall and then later at the Princeton Marketfair. I lost track of the theatre when I went off to college in the mid-1980’s.
Today the building is in retail use as a food store.
