The last night at the Park 11, Orlando’s oldest movie theater
ORLANDO, FL — The Park 11 recently closed its doors after years as a discount house and 43 years of lots of changes.
It was final call last night (Thursday) at the Park 11 cinema, the ancient multiplex that has been a part of Orlando-area movie going for 43 years. The Park, the place Walt Disney told Orlando what he was about to build on the outskirts of town, something that would change the city forever, will be partly-knocked down and become a Lifestyle Family Fitness Center (gym) sometime next year, acording to Arik Basso, manager of the property for Mainstreet Management.
Built as a stand-alone theater, a two-screener, in 1964, the Park became a triple, then jumped to 11 screens in 1991, eventually becoming the discount house it has been for years.
