Status should be changed to “Demolished”, as it was razed years ago, and is now a Homewood Suites.

Demolished – a “Hilton Homewood Suites” hotel now stands on this site.

Memorable films from the 1970s at the Triphammer included “Darling Lili,” “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Five Easy Pieces,” “Claire’s Knee,” “The Garden of the Finzi Continis,” “That Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie,” and “10.” After its renovation as a four-plex in the late 1990s, the theater operated as part of the Hoyt’s chain that managed the blockbuster multiplexes in the crowded Pyramid Mall. Hoyt’s then used the Triphammer for sub-runs and an occasional sophisticated opener. Notable films included “L.A. Confidential,” “Pulp Fiction,” and “The Cider House Rules.”
