The building opened in the summer of 1986.

The first film I saw there was Transformers: The Movie in August of that year. The last was the 2001 reissue of Monty Python and the Holy Grail in October ‘01.

For a kid who grew up in the 1980s in the 19th Ward of Rochester, that theatre was it. Kind of sad that it opened when I was 7, and closed for good a few months after I graduated college.

The last time I was in Rochester, it appeared that the building was not demolished but became a retail outlet or outlets. The main store was a shoe store.

This appears to have been demolished and is now the parking lot for the Field & Stream store.
