CSWalczak commented about Movies at Fairlane on Jun 15, 2008 at 5:41 pm

This theatre originally opened as a five-plex in 1976 and was operated by United Artists. Its entry was inside the mall; it was later expanded to a ten-plex
and management was taken over by Jack Loeks Theatres.
Fairlane Mall is a multi-level mall and there was for a time two different entries to the screening rooms depending on what level the particular cinema was located, which was an awkward layout. The cinemas themselves were undistinguished in decor and by the end of the complex’s life had become very shabby.

The theatre complex closed in 2000 or 2001, esssentially replaced by a new 21-screen theatre, originally operated by Loew’s Cineplex (which had a substantial part ownership of Loeks). It’s now operated by AMC. That theatre was built immediately adjacent to the part of the mall where the originally Fairlane theaters were, but I do not know if the new theatre occupies any of that space. The new theatre’s entry is outside the mall.

It could have been created out of storefronts, but it looks purpose-built.

Sorry; I hit ‘Submit’ before ‘Preview" – I meant to delete the second URL as that picture had been posted previously, and correct “additional”.

Although it alwys looked to me like a closed theatre marquee when ever I have seen it on TV, the clip reveals as most likley a vehicle. I realized that it is unlikley that marquee would extend over the street that way. Thanks to all who took the time to respond.

New shows are on NBC but I don’t think the theater is seen in he montage of the newer shows. You are more likely to see it at the beginning of th reruns on the USA cable network.
