Post remodel pictures show the original 18-30 hallway is now just 18-24, so I have to imagine that 25-30 are blocked off.

This is not a picture from this theatre. This belongs to a Premiere Cinema — my guess in Temple, TX or Oralndo, FL

@StanMalone — Classic Cinemas in Illinois had a number of theatres that regularly used the Endless Loop Platters for their daily operation.

Below is a link to a picture on Cinematour of one such operation. I remember seeing this in a few of their theatres and thought it was pretty ballsy, since one thing went wrong with that platter and I have to imagine you were down for the rest of the day trying to get the film back in order.

What were the first seven before that?

Scott Neff commented about Cinemark 12 Cypress & XD on Jul 15, 2017 at 9:32 pm

I learned today that the XD auditorium is actually an addition to the building. I haven’t been inside, but I assume they carved out one of the existing regular theatres to provide access to the XD screen, keeping the total count at 12.

Jordan — I think the article is referring to the Cinema 21 (originally the Marina Theatre) which was converted into a Walgreens and also houses a new Marina Theatre.

Quite a claim — they don’t have to drive 15-minutes down the road.

It is now the “Royal Range” where the E and G have been replaced with a similar font O and Y.

This is great! It’s details like this that I love. Similarly, the Krikorian (now Cinepolis) Pico Rivera 15 was originally supposed to have a giant screen concept added to it in the big empty field to the side of the building, but it never happened. So the theatre is built with theatres 2-15, and no theatre #1.

Since those are pretty standard AMC designs of the time, I assume that AMC remodeled to match the additions just without stadium.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Classic Peachtree 8 on May 27, 2017 at 11:22 am

I understand that the theatre isn’t part of the mall. But the current building doesn’t appear on historic arial maps until 2004 images. Prior to that the space where the current building stands is an empty field. That’s why I suspect the 1975 building is not part of the current complex, and actually stood somewhat west of the current building.

Judging by Historic Aerials, the current 8-screen building (and the easern part of the mall) did not exist at the time of their 1993 photo. I would say that the current 8-screen building is entirely new and not any part of the original 2/3 screen configuration.

I stand corrected – it is divided ten screens to the left, six screens to the right of the snack bar.

Picking up on various comments made on various North Dekalb pages here on CT, I visited the AMC 16 earlier this year and do strongly believe that the Market Square 4 is part of this 16-plex. This theatre after entering the lobby, to the right side of the snack bar are four slope-seating theatres. To the left of the snack bar is a long hallway that connects to what is essentially a 12-plex stadium style theatre. Pics soon to be up at Cinematour.com

This theatre was demolished late 2016 or early 2017.

Does anybody know about the screen count change? When I was there in 2011 it at least had interior signage indicating there were 18-screens. Wha happen?

Still there as of February 2017.

stevenj – that’s stock footage. All AMC Dine-In theatres show the same picture.

rayman – that’s a good point, but I think it would take somebody filing a lawsuit or bringing the DOJ back into it to make that happen again.

The 17th Screen is actually in a separate building in the same shopping/entertainment complex. and is listed on this site as the IMAX Discovery Theatre. Do with that info what you will, but in my head it means this is still a 16-screen theatre with a separate theatre nearby.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Classic Arizona Center 24 on Apr 27, 2017 at 1:08 pm

Also — some of these AMC 24-30 screens aren’t fully open anymore, often 10 screens are closed down/cordoned off.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Classic Arizona Center 24 on Apr 27, 2017 at 1:07 pm

It’s determined by annual attendance I believe. And if I’m not mistaken, this theatre is a stinker as far as attendance goes.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Dine-In Kabuki 8 on Apr 27, 2017 at 1:06 pm

I want to go visit and see if it’s actually become any more “Dine-In” than it was before as Sundance. I think it’s somewhat misleading to call it a “Dine In Theatre” when it’s not one devoted to full meal service.

The Worcester Telegram reported on 2/28/17 that the building was being demolished.
