Westwood Cinema

The Pascack Theatre was opened on August 30, 1928 presenting vaudeville & the movie “The Skyscraper” starring William Boyd. It is a little gem just off the main drag in Westwood, New Jersey. Unfortunately, the beauty of the theatre is hidden behind the walls of this sixplex. The Pascack Theatre was 1,275 seats including the balcony. Operated by the Skouras Theaters Corp. chain in the 1940’s, United Artists turned it into a quad on December 13, 1985.

The theatre was subsequently sold and now has six screens, two in the original orchestra, two in the balcony, and two on the original stage. The Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ was removed in 1997 and relocated to the Brook Theatre in Bound Brook, New Jersey. By 2018 it had been renamed Westwood Cinema.

This was my boyhood theater starting with movies like PT 109 and Lady and the Tramp. Beautiful theater and nice size screen. Was never in it since it was turned into shoe boxes. Why bother? My TV is probably as large as the screens. And to have gotten rid of that organ! Vandalism.

vindanpar, I wonder if the organ survived the Floyd flood of 1999 when the Brook Theatre got flooded with 14 feet of water.

This is a very nice downtown theater. Always very clean spotless and fact . Friendly staff. There are two theaters upstairs in the original balcony. Two theaters downstairs. 155 seats in each of the upstairs theaters. 280 in one of the downstairs theaters in 250 in the other downstairs Theatre Good site lines and decent size screens especially in the downstairs theaters. There are two other theaters down the long hallway. The screens are pretty small along with the auditoriums. But it’s definitely worth going to if you’re in the area. Much better to support a local theater then a big multiplex

The capacity for the two smaller ones is probably just around 100 or under around 95 I’d have to check to make sure of the count next time I go there
