Allwood Cinemas

Originally a big single screen movie theatre operated by Mid-Century Theatres, the Allwood Theatre was opened on July 26, 1950 with ‘A Special Hollywood Preview’ with film star Tom Ewell appearing ‘in person’. It was twinned on December 15, 1978. It became a quad on March 20, 1987. Two more screens were added on November 22, 1989.

It is still the only remaining small theatre in a town that now has a 16 screen multiplex owned by AMC, which makes more money than this local cinema. Two auditoriums have digital sound, while the others have Dolby Stereo and mono sound. Still a cheap way to go to the movies, and easier now that online ticketing is available. The Allwood Cinemas 6 was closed by Clearview Cinemas on May 19, 2013.

It was reopened by Empire Cineplex Cinemas on June 21, 2013. It was closed in Fall of 2022.

According to Google reviews, they are renovating some seats in order to compete against the nearly 20 year old Clifton Commons complex which has reserved seating in all their screens.

Growing up in Clifton in the 1960’s on Beverly hill rd, all the neighborhood kids use to spend are Saturday afternoons there. In 1968 my best friend & I both became ushers and had the time of our lives. We started when they were showing Yellow Submarine and it was held over for weeks. Couldn’t get the songs out of my head. One of my duties was changing the posters when a new movie came in. I had the greatest poster collection until mom decided to clean out the basement one day.

April 2021 an application was submitted to the city to demolish the Allwood Theatre and replace it with 5 retail shops at ground level and a 4 story apartment building for seniors. It would be 42 age-restricted units. Several major variances would be needed.

This theater is in rough shape. I guess since they know that the theater may be demolished in the near future they’re doing almost nothing to upkeep it. The air-conditioning was not working when I went there and they were offering no popcorn. Sad that they are keeping an open and not doing anything to make it a place that someone would want to go to for a movie experience

Looks like since I’ve been there earlier in this year that the theater is now closed. No answer to their phone number. Looks like since I’ve been there earlier in this year that the theater is now closed. No answer to their phone number. No movie listings
