I grew up in Clarkson and Waterford. And I can remember when the Clarkson Cinema was G-Rated only. Then it was PG or PG-13 only. It was a cool idea that the owners back then tried to keep it a Family oriented Cinema. But the low ticket price was the coolest thing for me and my friends. And it was convenient to that area without having to drive a good ways. I saw movies throughout the 1980's and early 1990's. Forrest Gump was the last movie I saw there in 1994. I miss the memories- I wish they would open it up again.

I worked there from the early to mid nineties while I was still in school. Great place for a teenager to work. No hauntings to speak of but we did ride a moped around inside and a few bottle rockets were lit off. There may still be a fifth of Jack Daniels under the large popcorn bucket that is on display. To bad its closed, many fond memories!
