I was a child in the 70’s and remember the Freehold cinema before the days of the Freehold Raceway Mall. (At that time we had the Manalapan Mall which has since been torn down). The cost to go to the movies then was only $2 and that was the going rate at the time. When the price rose to $3 and then $3.50 we couldn’t believe how expensive movies were getting. I can’t remember all the movies we saw there, but I do remember going with all my friends and getting Red Hots at the concession stand and having a contest to see how many we could put in our mouths at once.
I too have been to Work Out World and have looked for clues of the old movie theater. The lobby brings back memories. I can still imagine what it was like to purchase tickets at the ticket window and walk into the theater. I miss it too!
