News About This Theater

Apple Valley Cinemas

Located in the Apple Valley Mall Shopping Center. This theater originally opened as a three-screen second-run venue in the late-1960’s. It remained such until additional screens were added over the years.

The place was closed for a long stretch in the 1990’s, then re-opened under National Amusements management, at first with a discount second-run policy and more recently with first run showings at regular prices.

In 2007, it was operated by the independent Trademark Cinemas chain. By 2010, it had been taken over by Cinema Holdings, but was closed by November 2010.

Trazadone, Can’t believe they were closed for Cleaning either. they might have been “partying” that goes on a lot in theatres at least in my day.

No Mike that never happened in MY THEATRES,It was great to have the keys to hang around after or before hours.I could have lived in any of my theatres if they had showers in them.I did have one clean up man who lived in the back room of the LOEWS MELROSE I came to open up one day a Disney movie there was a line down the sidewalk when I got there and I went inside and the theatre had not been touched a far as cleaning,I got my staff to do the best we could do before we opened it was a wreak from a busy Friday night,I found him passed out in his backroom apartment as I called it, I hired a new clean up man that day.

I can’t believe that happened. A mom and pop theatre most likely wouldn’t pull that trick.

I was born and raised in Smithfield and vivited this theater since childhood. The girl I was always in love with, Kim Santangini, had a sister who worked there. I would always ask her to say hello to Kim, hoping Kim would call me. She never did! LOL I was devastated in 2010 when, right after some very wet weather, I was met at the door by an employee who said that they were having computer problems and so they couldn’t let anyone in. I have never been inside again. I feel like I have lost an old friend.
