NORTH CHARLESTON, SC — Southeast Cinemas has given the former AMC Northwoods 8 a thorough gut-rehab and will be reopening it in late October as the Northwoods Stadium Cinemas. The company is also adding five additional screening rooms which are expected to open in early 2011.
Because of the expansion in the rear, removal of load-bearing walls and stripping the insides down to the concrete walls, Snodgrass said new engineering required the updated building to meet current fire codes and be handicapped-accessible, which added to the delay.
“It wasn’t simply coming in and slapping on a new coat of paint,” he said. “Nobody is going to recognize it when they walk inside.”
