Cinema III’s owner Edward Grant launched Grant’s Movies I & II on February 15, 1974 with Mayor Henry Cioffi cutting the ribbon at 620 Ocean Avenue in Long Branch’s West End. The auditoriums had identical capacity with 340 seats each. Music Makers Theatres Circuit bought the operation from Grant in December of 1978 becoming Movies I & II.

When Music Makers sold out to Loews, this location became a Loews Theatre Circuit operation and was renamed Loews Long Branch 1&2 in 1988. Under the Circuit’s rebranding to Sony Theatres Circuit, it closed as the Sony Long Branch 1 & 2 on June 18, 1995 with “Village of the Damned” and “Circle of Friends.”
