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.
Also — some of these AMC 24-30 screens aren’t fully open anymore, often 10 screens are closed down/cordoned off.
It’s determined by annual attendance I believe. And if I’m not mistaken, this theatre is a stinker as far as attendance goes.
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.
Oh — and there used to be a blade sign down the front but it was knocked out in a storm a LOOOONG time ago (60’s? sooner?)
The theatre reopened well before 2004. Renovation work began in 1996 and I think it reopened in late 1996 or early 1997… I can’t remember, it’s such a blur. Sad to see it close, I helped a little bit with the renovation in 1996.
The name of the street it’s on is Fire Tower Rd. I’m assuming the street once lead to the town’s fire tower.
Curious if this information came from somewhere of if its anecdotal. Where specifically was it located besides “in Scottsdale”
Oh those lightbulbs! I’m sure the manager there loves them.
I guess it makes sense that they reclinered this place, it was Century’s first group up Stadium-Build and so it was built BIG. I remember the hallways there were wide enough to drive cars down and had multiple houses that sat 400+. The small theatres there were probably 120 which wouldn’t make for too low of a capacity once reclinered. Is Cinemark going to continue to put the big recliner signage up when they do these conversions? Some day it’ll be commonplace and will make the place look dated.
Last day of operation was 1/26/2017.
I like the original grand opening ad touted “Luxurious Chair Seats”. CUTTING EDGE!
This location has been demolished.
Can anybody confirm whether O'Neil Theatres operated/opened this theatre? Besides the signage looking suspiciously like theirs I show that “Trad-A-House Inc.” was registered at this address which was O'Neil’s corporate identity.
General Cinemas operated this theatre from 6/11/1982 until they sold of their Colorado locations to Mann on 6/22/1984.
This picture is posted to the wrong cinema.
Was it the AMC Greens Crossing 6?
