I would like to add some more about the Stonestown Cinema and correct some of the ""points"" made about this theatre. The Theatre was completed in 1971 and opened as the UA Cinema Stonestown. It replaced Larry Barrett's Chevron dealership and tire company which had been there for years. In 1974 the theatre was cut into two seperate houses and then became known as the UA Cinema Stonestown Twin. Dorothy Zubach, a veteran movie house manager and reputed (she at least claimed) former Zigfield Follies Dancer was the Manager throughout the 70's and Mid 80's. I was a Doorman/Usher there in high school and sometimes on colleage breaks from the mid 70's until about 1979. Fun job as a kid and within walking distance of my house. I now live back in the neighborhood and was amazed to see a couple of years ago when attending a movie there that the cashier at the ticket window was someone who I have worked with there in the 70's that was still employed there. I guess that shows tenure and it was a nice place to work!
