JackCoursey commented about Harundale Cinema I & II on Apr 3, 2015 at 12:57 pm

Does anyone have any interior shots? I am curious as to how much of the original design remains intact. It is a very large building even for a twin.

Does anything remain of the original auditorium or was it gutted when it was divided into four venues?

JackCoursey commented about Snellville Cinema 5 on Jan 11, 2015 at 5:08 am

This was one of the last of the Septum Cinemas before they were acquired by Cineplex Odeon. The chain seemed to give equal attention to its game room (Tilt) as it did to its screening rooms.

JackCoursey commented about Kings Plaza 6 Theaters on Jan 8, 2015 at 7:02 pm

Does anybody have any recall as to when and how the addition four screens came to be? Were they built from the ground up or were the existing auditoriums partitioned off to make six venues?

JackCoursey commented about Regal Springfield Town Center Stadium 12 on Oct 27, 2014 at 11:33 pm

Each of the 12 auditoriums are very well appointed with large screens, lounge chairs with movable food trays and none with a seating capacity greater than 110. Very nice set up but it does beg the question of why pay $11 a seat, not including the cost of treats, if you can create the same atmosphere at home at a fraction of the cost. It would be great if Regal would primarily present art house fare on the order of a Landmark operation and use the Kingstowne down the road for mainstream features.

It appears that Regal is building a twelve screen complex in or around where the initial six auditoriums were. It will be all stadium seating and is scheduled to open in November 2014.

Does anyone know of any theaters of the design still existing? I would love to get some photos of them. The Tara in Atlanta, GA. is a variation on this theme.

Apparently at least one of the original auditoria still remains relatively intact as a conference/screening room.

JackCoursey commented about Fairfax Towne Center 10 on May 27, 2014 at 12:15 am

The last time I patronized this cinema, which was in 2011, it had conventional, not stadium, seating. The venue is clean, some of the screens are of good size, but over all it is just a bland 90s multiplex.

It is looking great and am appreciative of all of the money and effort put forth in restoring it!

JackCoursey commented about Village Theatre on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:19 pm

To be clear, nothing of the original interior remains in place. The theater was completely gutted, top to bottom. The four conventional auditoriums on the second level are architecturally on par with just about every mall multiplex designed between the late 1970s and early 1980s. It is a rather basic venue at best and a real shame nothing could have been done to keep the place intact. Still, it does have a nice exterior.

The theatre had a seating capacity of around 1200. The two auditoriums were split in half in 1986 to make it a four screen complex. The architect was Victor Smolen.

There are currently only two auditoriums in operation. Is the complex being retrofitted for stadium seating?

JackCoursey commented about AMC Fashion Village 8 on Feb 13, 2013 at 12:44 pm

This was the standard design of just about every eightplex AMC built during the 1980s. from The Northlake 8 in Tucker, GA was identical to the Fashion Village.

JackCoursey commented about Edna Theatre on Feb 7, 2013 at 11:43 pm

The Edna has a remarkable resemblance to the Alabama Theater in Houston, TX. By chance, does anyone have any interior shots of the Edna or know who the architect was?

This cinema opened sometime during the mid to late 1970s. The auditoriums are back to back both sharing the same projection booth and both seating around 240 each. Very large screens and excellect sight lines throughout.
