Opened on 9th February 1973 on screen 1 with ‘The Mechanic" and “Buck and the preacher” and on screen 2 with “Bedknobs and broomsticks” and “The Barefoot Executive”.

As can be seen in Google Street View images, the entire building that in its final incarnation was Flea Market USA but had once included the Star Twin when it was the Woolco Shopping Center, was demolished sometime between April 2019 and February 2020.

I used to gaze down upon the surprisingly large Flea Market USA while passing by on northbound Metrorail trains, but on a more recent trip a year or so ago was startled to suddenly see a vast empty lot.

I have been able to match the posts holding up the Woolco sign in the photo Al Avarez linked to in his April 15th, 2011 comment to the posts holding up the Flea Market USA sign in Google Street View, as well as the building behind the sign in both images, so it was the same place.

Wow, I was too young in the 1970’s to be aware that such content as shown in the ads posted here for the Star Twin existed in the movie exhibition marketplace.

Where in the large building was the Star Twin located?

While it was open, was anything associated with it visible from the parking lot or street, such as a marquee?

This defaulted to the classified ad that mentioned Star Twin, and its fellow shopping center anchors Woolco, Food Fair, Eckerd Drugs, and Ranch House… all long gone. Click back to page 7 for the display ad, and scroll down to find out what “Deep Thrust” really was.

(Also at the Coral and Coral Ridge: “Last Tango in Paris” — all seats reserved?!?)

(Midnight movies at the Skylake?!?)
