In early 1974 Mann Theatres moved it’s Eastern Division office here from 300 Madison Ave. in NYC.

Correction to above history comment. The National General Theatre chain was sold to Mann Theatres in the early 70’s. That’s when The Fox was sold to Cineplex. Previous to Mann buying out the National General chain, it had been operated by Fox East Coast Theatres, then National General.

Saw “Star Wars” here and then “Star Trek II) five years later – and then it closed. Too bad, but there’s really only one way to get into the lot (as it stands now).

This theatre was smaller than its sister twin, the Fox in Woodbridge, N.J. which had seating for almost 1700. Both theatres opened at the same time, but the Woodbridge location closed sooner, on Feb 2, 1979.

I also saw “Star Wars” there after seeing it at Paramus, and wished they had at least gotten Dolby, never mind upgrading to 70mm (the screen was certainly large enough that 70mm capability wouldn’t have been a bad idea, either). Sorry to see it go—and even more sorry to see it turn into a Chuck E. Cheese!

The Fox may have had an area exclusive of “Star Wars” but they had not yet installed Dolby Stereo so they were running it in 35mm mono. I recall going with a friend who had not yet made the trek up to Paramus to see it in 70mm and despite the large screen the difference was palpable. Had the owners sprung for improved sonics, those of us who frequently made pilgrimages up North might have paid to see it closer to home. I also recall seeing “Poseidon Adventure” and John Carpenter’s “The Fog” there. I peeked into the Chuck E. Cheese once and it was thoroughly depressing.
