Before 1983 it was a larger, single screen cinema. It closed in the early 80s and re-opened with two smaller screens. The last movie I saw there before the change was “Poltergeist”.

Yes, it was on the NE corner of Shea Blvd and 32nd St. I used to spend my Saturdays there with one of my brothers watching Godzilla movies- all day for a dollar (if I recall correctly)-in the air-conditioning. It was a great way to pass time during the hot summer months. At the time, this was the only shopping center around for miles.

It appears Dwight Harkins numbered his theatres as he opened them in their Grand Opening ads. #1 was Tower Plaza, #2 was Los Arcos #3 Shea #5 Glenfair. So far #4 is a mystery theatre. Even though the Shea is #3, it opened as a twin theatre.

The theatre was located on the NE corner of Shea and 32nd Street in a strip shopping center with a grocery store and a few other businesses. It faced 32nd Street.
