This was the place to go if you wanted to watch a great Disney movie

I saw Pokémon: The First Movie, Welcome to Mooseport and Robots here as a kid. I wish I went here more often. I wish it wasn’t demolished. This was one of my favorite places.

This opened as Meadow Plaza 8 on December 19th, 1986. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

Never mind. The Plaza 8 was said successor to the Harmon Cove quad.

Compared to the Plaza 8, the meadow 6 was the better theater.

Actually it opened in late 1986 with The Mission being one of the movies shown in 70mm.

Meadow six opened in June 1982. The Plaza 8 opened in 1987 according to New York Magazine. https://books.google.com/books?id=IeUCAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA66&dq=loews+plaza+8&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAtbTi54HKAhULmx4KHZ4gAQs4MhDoAQgkMAA

This is the trailer that was shown at this and other Loews theaters during the 80’s…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcXO-iKaJ_Y
During the theater’s final years, big movies would play on multiple screens at both this theater and the meadow six, much like what happened at Paramus with the triplex and the tenplex before the AMC Garden State 16 opened.

Looks like the fitness center is finally up and running – the external makeover is so complete you wouldn’t ever guess there was once an eight-screen theater there

Pretty soon they’ll remove any signs that say “Loews Theatres” and the searchlight logo, as well as remove the marquee…I hope the Kerasotes shows a mix of indie, foreign, and box office fare much like the old Loews theaters. The Plaza 8 was popular with kids as they often show family films. Since the theater’s closing, attendance to the nearby shops and stores have probably decreased. The same could be said once the Meadow Six theater closes this Friday, to be replaced by retail space.

Drove by today after attending my final film at the Secaucus sixplex – the old Loews Meadow 8 has been completely gutted open, although the exterior walls on the sides and back are still up

Will LA Fitness open in time? I read an article online that there was a shooting at an LA Fitness in a suburb near Pittsburgh….they should put extra security at that building since it’s a highly trafficked area.

I was told that the Kerasotes Showplace 14 will open around Oct.

That’s good to hear…and pretty soon not too far from there another towering hulk of a theater will arrive….Xanadu. That thing will have a real IMAX screen, unlike other theaters that have mini versions of the famous format.

Demolition of the Loews Meadow 8 is proceeding – the building has been almost completely gutted and no longer looks like a theater. The new Showplace 14 is a huge concrete monstrosity going up in the parking lot on the other side of the Loews Meadow 6, just off Route 3 West. Supposedly it will open up sometime in August.

Maybe Regal could do it, since they’re publicly traded and are in much better shape than AMC.

A friend of mine asked me if I knew about a theatre being built near the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel. Is this Kerasotes Showplace 14 the one he could be referring to? Also, with Muvicos money woes, I guess someone else will be finishing the plex in Xanadu. (If Xanadu itself ever gets finished)

The Meadow Six was the first to open in 1982, so I guess the Plaza 8 opened shortly thereafter. Now Secaucus will have only one theater left until the Meadow Six closes and the new Kerasotes Showplace 14 opens. BTW, how’s construction going at that place?

I know the manager told the answer to that question when I was there on the day they closed, but for some reason, I just can’t seem to remember right now. I’m pretty sure she said it was somewhere between 1980-1983. If it comes to me, I’ll definitely let you know.

I agree with ur comment, christophersepp. When did the 8 plex open?
