Judging by photos I’ve seen (even the one on Carmike’s website) it was definitely an AMC. The signage and snack bar are definite give aways.
The theatres aren’t actually side by side; they are down the street from each other. Whatever the case it is an impressive sight to see.
This actually never opened as a Century, it was always operated by Cinemark. It is just branded as a Century Theatre to keep in line with all the other properties in the Tucson area.
Chris — what do you mean by down vs. up sloping?
Is down where you enter at the top of the stadium and step down? And up where you enter at the bottom and walk up?
Lippert Theatres also ran this theatre, prior to AMC.
You’ll notice that’s because there’s no address listed.
Cause GCC knew how to build em! :) Unfortunately didn’t know how to keep em. That theatre was GCC, AMC, Kerasotes, AMC and then a forced sell to Regal. Poor latchkey theatre.
Also similar to the City North in Chicago.
(click on the photos box in the upper right corner of the street view)
By the looks of the lobby and auditorium this was a Regal Cinema at some point?
And that would be East Shelby Dr.
Address according to an old Rentrak listing I found is 1260 Shelby Dr.
Does the outside still look like a GCC or are those old photos?
Who ran this before Flagship?
Oooooh offers air conditioning. How modern!
I doubt they’re paying rent. Landlord probably found them to keep the space from remaining vacant.
So is Galaxy operating both plexes or just the four? And somebody else is operating the other?
There are many many many photos at Cinematour.
It condenses a night out at the movies. Combining the two allows people to go see the 7:00 show and be out by 9. Many people don’t want to stay out until 11 just to see a movie. So if it puts more butts in the seats then I’m all for it.
Also — if you don’t want to eat during a movie (or have others around you eating) don’t go to a dining theatre.
What gives you that idea?
Except the 20-plex is a Century Theatre. Not exactly ironic.
How ornate do you expect a place to be?
The Julia 4 in Columbia, SC is another I believe.
As far as Consolidated Theatres goes — was this chain absorbed by another? Was it an earlier name for another? What’s their deal?
We get it already. You don’t like multiplexes.
The treatment on the front of the theatre looks like Super Saver / Silver ran the theatre at some point. Was this a Regal the entire time?
Does any part of the theatre still stand at the site of the Mercedes dealership?
Can anybody shed some light — somehow at Cinematour we found an address for the AMC Willowbrook 6 at 1156 FM-1960 which puts it nearly back at I-45.
Obviously the Willowbrook 6 wouldn’t be that far back and it makes sense for it to be at the Willowbrook mall but our research shows that the Willowbrook Mall had a General Cinema (at some point). Was the GCC and the AMC the same theatre? Does anybody know why we may have had information that 1156 FM-1960 is the address?
