Is this still closed? If so, the status needs updating.

What is the current status of this construction project?

Ron Newman commented about AMC Eastland Centre 8 on Jan 23, 2013 at 3:59 pm

I believe this has been demolished.

Ron Newman commented about AMC Eastland Plaza 6 on Jan 23, 2013 at 3:59 pm

Is it still standing? This page says ‘Renovating’ which I somewhat doubt.

Ron Newman commented about Eastside Drive-In on Jan 23, 2013 at 3:05 pm

The front entrance next to Main Street is now an Aldi grocery store. The rest of the property appears to now be some sort of warehouse or light industrial district.

Ron Newman commented about Chakeres East Main Drive-In on Jan 23, 2013 at 2:56 pm

Looks like this has mostly become a residential subdivision, back behind the medical center and Golden Corral restaurant buildings that were on either side of the entrance.

This location is now a Wal-Mart.

The map location is at Main and Yearling, which is not at all consistent with either my memory of the place, or the aerial photo.

The map location shown here looks wrong — way east of where it should be.

Are you sure about the closing date? I lived in Columbus from 1968-75, and what I remember at this address is a Zayre department store, a SupeRx drugstore, and various smaller shops clustered around a big parking lot.

What organization is trying to restore it, and what sort of entertainment do they plan to have?

Ron Newman commented about AMC Chestnut Hill 5 on Jan 18, 2013 at 2:05 pm

Any indication of when the new replacement (National Amusements) cinema will open?

Ron Newman commented about Drexel Theatre on Jan 5, 2013 at 2:25 pm

I’d hope they are headed for another theatre and not a scrapyard!

How will the Drexel ever show old movies if they no longer have any projectors?

Ron Newman commented about Colonial Theatre on Sep 30, 2012 at 5:48 pm

What are the two shows? Are they a joint venture between ArtsEmerson and the Wang Center?

Ron Newman commented about Orson Welles Cinema on Sep 18, 2012 at 10:53 pm

Maybe you are thinking of “Hail Mary”, another film that attracted Catholic protesters.

Ron Newman commented about Landmark Kendall Square Cinema on Sep 18, 2012 at 10:51 pm

I thought the 70mm Master was going to Coolidge Corner, not here?

Ron Newman commented about Stadium Theatre on Sep 14, 2012 at 1:04 am

This place is gorgeous! Quite an unexpected find in an otherwise pretty depressing city center.

Ron Newman commented about Livingston Theatre on Aug 31, 2012 at 4:25 am

Does it still look like a movie or stage theatre inside, with the original raked seating? What sort of events will it host once it is restored?

Ron Newman commented about Director supporting efforts to maximize number of 70mm showings of '"The Master" across the country on Aug 29, 2012 at 7:50 am

Yes, 70mm at Coolidge Corner theatre in Brookline (next to Boston).

The Somerville Theatre also has 70mm projectors, and plans a 70mm festival next year, but they didn’t get this one.

MPol, the Somerville Theatre has 70mm projectors and plans to hold a 70mm festival next year.

Ron Newman commented about Harvard Square Theatre on Jul 24, 2012 at 8:44 am

Boston.com yesterday reported that AMC has sold the Harvard Square Theatre for $6.5 million to Cambridge-based Carpenter & Company, who own the Charles Hotel several blocks away.

“Richard Friedman, the president and chief operating officer of Carpenter & Company, said the company bought the building last week and he expects a plan will be place for the future of the property within two months.” He said that re-using the building as a theater is one of many options that will be considered.

That new National Amusements multiplex will be small by current standards — just 6 screens. It will be a ‘Cinema de Lux’.
