CinemarkFan commented about Century Stratford Square on Dec 30, 2005 at 11:24 am

I just found out that Regal Entertainment is buliding a 14 screen, state-of-the-art cinema at Stratford Square (maybe in the space that was Plitt Theatres). I found it in a archive on Chicagobusiness.com.

CinemarkFan commented about Loews and AMC to Sell 10 Theaters on Dec 23, 2005 at 8:51 pm

I would love to take over Webster Place and City North, but I’m nowhere near having money to own movie theatres.

I know someone will most likely scoop up City North 14, but I wonder if Webster Place’s time has run out? I hope not because I like that theatre.

Thanks guys. I’m going to look up those opening dates when I go back to the library.

But who else thinks the 14 plex should get a makeover?

Since I want to own movie theatres very soon, I’d like to turn this place into a art house or something. I miss McClurg Court with a passion.

Well, I guess it didn’t take long for a new theatre to be put in the south loop. Kerasotes Theatres is planning a 14-18 screen theatre to put up near Clark Street & Roosevelt Road. Here’s a link to the article.

Can’t wait for this to open.

Thanks guys. Oh Brian, I’d like to see that artist rendering of the Lincoln Village. And Paul, I’ve never been to the Lake, but I plan on going there soon.

The location you guys speak of wouldn’t happen to be where Best Buy is now? Because that’s what my brother says. Also, he said something about the theatres having plaid color seats, and one of the theatres being set up in a shadow box, is that true? I’ve only been to the new one which needs an extreme makeover.

CinemarkFan commented about Piper's Alley Theatre on Dec 8, 2005 at 12:53 pm

Grand opening date for this was May 24th 1991. Featuring 4 screens, one with 650 seats, three with 350 seats. 70MM dolby stereo projection in the largest theatre, discount indoor parking, completely handicapped- accessible, fresh popped corn, plush seating in all auditoriums with cup-holder armrests, computerized, same day advance ticket sales. First movies to play here: Hudson Hawk on two screens, Defending Your Life and Truly, Madly, Deeply. When I was here for the first time in 2003, the seats weren’t plush, they were thin blueish/purple seats.

Uhh, you lost me on that one. I forgot Essaness owned a TV station.

Speaking of Essaness, does anyone know where I can find photos of their theatres? I’m doing a school article on theatres and this could be useful. I’m also trying to obtain photos of Chestnut Station, Diana, Lincoln Village 7-9, The Plaza etc… The photos would go in my article. Thanks to anyone in advance.

This theatre along with River Oaks 7-8 are now closed. I wonder what they’re going to do with them?

I wonder who’s going to operate the new Stratford Square Cinemas?

Anyway, that’s good news. Now, If only they can remodel Ford City Cinemas.

I wish somebody like Classic Cinemas would jump on this and remodel it. Oh well. Who knows, maybe someday there will be another theatre in the south loop.

Was there a theater inside the mall before this one opened?

CinemarkFan commented about Chestnut Station Theaters on May 6, 2005 at 7:14 pm

Does anybody have any pictures of this place? I have never been here before. And, if I did, I am way to young to remember it.

Does anybody know what month this place opened in 1984?

This theatre has recently been torn down. Check out the photo here at: Http://www.cinematour.com/picview.php?db=us&id=2614

Well, it was good while it lasted. But still, this could have been a good 2nd run house but that’s okay, I love the nearby Cinemark at Seven Bridges and Loews Woodridge 18 so that’s great.

CinemarkFan commented about Lansing Cinema 8 on Nov 19, 2004 at 10:40 pm

River Run just re-opened tonight showing movies that came out this past summer like: I Robot, DodgeBall, The Village, Collateral, Spider-Man 2 and Alien vs. Predator for free. And I can tell ya, when I got to the front entrance of the theater, it was packed to the 25th power! And from what I saw, this place changed a lot. I can’t wait for them to show new movies because I’ll be there again.

Oh, it’s new name is indeed Lansing Cinema 8.

Did you know that Aliens played here in 1986. I know this because I have Microfilm on it.

Deathtrap came out March 19th 1982. Also, this cinema was originally opened by Essaness Theatres, then Cineplex Odeon took over. By the way, what did this cinema look like on the inside? I would really like to know.
