Ridge Cinema Fourplex - 1983

Today, in one of my first "West End" posts, I give you a fantastic ad from 1983 for the fine Ridge Cinemas. It was built at 1510 E. Ridge Road in 1970 with two large screens. When it closed in 2002 it had expanded to seven screens. It was demolished in 2004. I saw many a great movie there. The site is now occupied by a Kroger. I love this ad--it looks like the bad clip art family is pushing the logo across the page. And look at the movies that were playing!

  1. Fantastic ad. Best of all, I saw all four of those movies - at the Ridge!

  2. I loved the Ridge

  3. Remember cool dude named Jeff who was DM. Gave me smart advice.

  4. I remember seeing John Waters's 'Polyester' there at the Midnight Movies back in the early 80s. Still have my scratch 'n sniff card!
