This theater opened as a state-of-the-art quad on June 30, 1976. The opening day titles were “Silent Movie”, “The Outlaw Josey Wales”, “Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday”, and “W.C. Fields and Me”. All of the theaters were twinned and two more theaters were added during the 1980’s, bringing the total number of screens to ten.
For over two decades, this was the top-grossing moviehouse in the Pittsburgh area; however, in 2000 Destinta and Loews opened new, larger complexes nearby that caused Showcase’s business to decline for years and on September 12, 2004 Showcase East went out of business. It was demolished in late-2010.
