This is actually in Rohnert Park, CA which may at one point have been southern Santa Rosa.

It appears this theatre is open and operated by Satellite Cinemas (www.satellite-cinemas.com)

Scott Neff commented about Regal Cypress Creek Station 16 on Feb 1, 2017 at 12:26 pm

There appear to have been eight Funscape locations total: -Greenrbier 13, Chesapeake VA -Theatre open, Funscape now a gym

-Eastview Mall 13, Victor NY – Theatre open, Funscape appears to be empty.

-Cicero 13, Cicero NY – Theatre closed, both now a car dealership

-Brandywine Town Center 16, Wilmington DE – Theatre open, looks like Funscape was absorbed by mall.

-Green Hills 16, Nashville TN – Theatre open, can’t tell from Google what happened to Funscape

-West Town Mall 9, Knoxville TN – Theatre open, Funscape still kind of there as arcade room and decorative fun entrance to theatre.

-Cyrpress Creek Station 16, Ft Lauderdale FL – Theatre open, looks like Funscape remodeled into store fronts and gym.

-Las Olas 23, Ft Lauderdale FL – both closed, don’t know where in complex the Funscape was.

Did Cobb ever operate this theatre?

It was the extensive gameroom/family fun center was actually called “FunScape”. Regal attempted to make this concept work at four other locations in the US.

Try as hard as they did to get rid of this, AMC has it back again after the purchase of Carmike. :)

This theatre is now branded as one of Carmike’s BigD theatres and operated as the 17th screen of the nearby Broadway Cinemas.

So Kerasotes got this from Goodrich not from Carmike? Any idea when Goodrich got it from Carmike then?

I’m thinking this picture is not of the Fox Theatre that was built/opened in 1970.

You’d have to think that if Regal pulled out, a company like Regency Theatres would go in.

Who opened this originally?

Scott Neff commented about Carmike Cinema 12 on Jan 23, 2017 at 12:10 pm

I have information that suggests this theatre closed in September of 2016. Does anybody have anything that suggests it actually closed January 2017?

When I was updating all the Carmikes to be AMCs on Cinematour I noticed that this was not part of the list on AMC’s website, so I think this closed before December 2016.

Scott Neff commented about Showcase Cinemas Bridgeport on Jan 23, 2017 at 11:58 am

This always puzzled me too. While I’ve never been inside either theatre here, I think it’s strange that the other theatre is the more modern one (didn’t somebody else build it?) and that this one that National built is the less modern. You’d think they would have done something to fix that if they could.

Scott Neff commented about Entertainment Cinemas Seymour Cinema 12 on Jan 23, 2017 at 11:56 am

I’m not positive if this is still the case, but my understanding is that BCG would offer loans to theatre operators in exchange for a cut of their concessions profits until the loan was repaid. If this is the case, then it is in the interest of both companies to promote the theatre. The more money Entertainment Cinemas makes, the quicker their loan is repaid.

Scott Neff commented about Regal Hamilton Place 8 on Jan 20, 2017 at 9:47 am

It’s strange because I have information that suggests the day that this theatre opened Regal acquired a string of theatres from UA (Knoxville Center 10, Capri Cinema 4, Northgate Crossing, Jackson Cinema 10, Southbrook Cinema 7). They didn’t get the 9-plex until almost a year and a half later.

Scott Neff commented about Regal 7 on Jan 19, 2017 at 3:12 pm

This building appears to have been built by Carmike. Does anybody know if Carmike operated it before Regal acquired it or did Regal do some fancy dealing to get it before it opened?

Previous operators included Martin Theatres and Regal Cinemas.

Scott Neff commented about Regal Hamilton Place 8 on Jan 19, 2017 at 1:50 pm

Did UA ever operate this theatre, or the 9-plex inside the mall?

Scott Neff commented about Stones River Cinemas on Jan 19, 2017 at 1:17 pm

An article in the August 1990 issue of Boxoffice stated that Litchfield opened this sixplex in May of 1990.

Scott Neff commented about Har-Mar 11 Cinemas on Jan 18, 2017 at 6:03 pm

Interesting that these theatres were GCC/Mann. A joint venture I assume. Was this the Mann Theatres of California or Mann Theatres of Minnesota?

If you zoom in the upper right corner of the grand opening ad, it says GCC Mann.

Scott Neff commented about Valencia Stadium 12 on Jan 17, 2017 at 10:11 am

I believe that the entire city is “Santa Clarita” which consists of the four previously unincorporated areas of Valencia, Canyon Country, Newhall, and Saugus. This area has always been confusing as far as city/theatre names.

Scott Neff commented about AMC Tamiami 18 on Jan 13, 2017 at 12:31 pm

You really shouldn’t rely on showtimes from any source other than the theatre’s own website. Newspapers and other free sources have a knack for being inaccurate with showtimes.

Scott Neff commented about Cinebarre Mount Pleasant 11 on Jan 11, 2017 at 6:09 pm

Cinebarre was a joint venture between Regal Entertainment and one of the original founders of Alamo Drafthouse. Late last year Regal announced in their internal newsletter that it was no longer a joint venture and Cinebarre is now wholly owned by REG.

Scott Neff commented about Skyborn Drive-In on Jan 6, 2017 at 5:59 pm

This theatre did not reopen for the 2016 season. Venturing a guess that it is closed as other Google searches returned articles about the property being for sale.

Scott Neff commented about Cinemark Layton and XD on Jan 6, 2017 at 9:52 am

Interesting development. I always liked the weird over-screening between the Cinemark and Cineplex Odeon/AMC there.
