The Imperial Theatre’s demise came in 1964 when the opening of the Park Terrace Theater brought this cinema to closed its doors. Not to mention faced strong competition from the state of the art and bigger Charlottetown Mall Cinema 1 & 2 which was the state’s first-ever twin theater that opened a year earlier in 1963.

DeMille’s THE TEN COMMANDMENTS which was the only reserved seat showing of the film in the Carolinas. I also have the advertisement for its Eastern North Carolina premiere where it played in Raleigh first run which was also a reserved seat engagement. If you need to see them please contact me at

Added on a second auditorium around late-1975 or mid-1976 when the Cardinal was under ABC Southeastern Theatres.

THE CARMIKE CARDINAL 3 closed in October of 2000 as a second run discount theatre under Carmike Cinemas. The information posted about its closing is incorrect.
This theater got a lot of the MGM and Columbia product.
Not to mention the longest-running engagement that this theater booked was on June 12, 1967 for it showing of THE DIRTY DOZEN that brought it records crowds for 15 weeks.
Reminds me of the same architectural design of The Cameron Village Theater that opened about the same year as this cinema did back in 1951 in Raleigh,North Carolina.
Once the site of the former A&P grocery store in Five Points.
The building had the same identical style and concept as the Cinema 6 in Jacksonville and Havelock and also in the same design as the Cinema 4 in Southern Pines.
