To answer Kevinm2017’s question: The Stoneham Cinema was located in the Redstone Shopping Center in Stoneham. “Redstone” has nothing to do with Sumner Redstone or National Amusements. Presumably, the name has to do with the fact that the shopping plaza is located very close to the municipal line separating Reading and Stoneham, on route 28.

I need some help. Where does the name Redstone come from. I thought it might be from the owner of National amusements Sumner Redstone that may have had an interest in the cinema at the Redstone Plaza. Now that I read your post above, I see that may not be true. Anyone know where the name comes from?

Many earlier comments about this cinema are on the page of the nearby (and separate) Stoneham Theatre.

I can’t remember for sure — after GCC got rid of this, was it called Stoneham Flick for a while?
