After the movie theatre closed somewhere around 1994-1995, it was first replaced by a Sears Hardware store, and now an A.C. Moore Arts and Crafts Superstore. The building is still the same and you can make out that it was a movie theatre at one time.

Listed in the 1976 International Motion Picture Almanac under GCC as Shrewsbury Plaza Cinema I & II.

This cinema had one of those blue box screens with no curtains in the main auditorium. There were two smaller theatres on the other side that were pretty typical.

I think “ROCKY HORROR” played every GCC theatre on Midnight shows.
