The Wometco Twin Theatre opened on March 24, 1967 with Paul Newman in “Hombre” & Marlon Brando in “The Countess From Hong Kong”. Seating was provided to 1,000 & 500. It often ran exclusives and roadshow presentations. Located across from Florida’s then busiest mall it was a suburban smash hit later a victim of land values and nearby multiplexes.
Excellent sized screens seating 1,000 and 500 with plush seating were undermined by tacky turnstyle entrance equipment. It later became a triplex.
