News About This Theater
- Jan 19, 2007 — Galaxy Triplex fades away
A modern cinema treasure built in 1977, the Galaxy Theatre has been in and out of operation for the last quarter century.
Closed only one year after it opened, the Galaxy Theatre remained dark for a decade, until it reopened in 1987. But, again, the cinema failed to find a devoted audience. When the theater became a discount house, it finally caught on with the public.
Triplexed in 1989, the Galaxy Triplex has since developed a reputation for eclectic programming at affordable prices. In addition to first-run features, The Galaxy Triplex hosted the only regularly scheduled silent film series east of the Mississippi.
Film critic Jeffrey Lyons has hosted a five week Coming Attractions program here, and the acclaimed Black Maria Film Festival of independent filmmakers is showcased annually at the theater.
The Galaxy Triplex closed in January 2007 and was converted into office space.
