By Multi-Cinemas — do you mean American Multi-Cinemas (AMC) operated this theatre for a time?
Looks like it was a Mann Theatre and NOT a GCC? the CINEMA I-II-III lettering confuses me!
This theatre makes me sad. I had emailed the shopping center owner to see if I could get in to take pictures the week we went there for Cinematour. Turns out they had just demolished the theatre two weeks before my email. So sad. Could have been inside taking pictures of what I’m sure was a time capsule of a theatre.
I couldn’t find the one you’re thinking of.
It’s a Paul Mitchell School for Hair.
Soon to be the Studio Movie Grill Dallas.
The marquee is actually still standing, proclaiming MQ6 Theatre… but the building is long gone.
Heh — I forgot that IL is east of the Mississippi. I used to audit those theatres all the time. :)
Two things: This theatre was never operated by Century Theatres, it was always a Cinemark but was rebranded a Century after Cinemark purchased that company.
Secondly — many of the Century Theatres (of California) are being marked as operated by “Century Circuit Inc.” which if I understand correctly, represents the circuit from the 1960’s that operated on the east coast. These are two very separate companies. A good rule of thumb is that the modern company never operated a theatre east of the Mississippi (and the east coast chain operated very few west of the Mississippi).
The photo pictured above is NOT the Hollywood Tyler Rose. If I recall that’s the Cinemark Hollywood 15 in Garland, TX.
You are correct. This was originally called the Nickelodeon. In fact I think that CinemaStar (the folks that built it) were originally called Nickelodeon… not entirely sure though.
There is an article in an early 90’s Boxoffice magazine about the opening of this theatre, I forget which though.
Regal Entertainment opened this theatre, it was never part of the original Edwards Theater Circuit.
Most of the fields have been resealed in 2013.
I believe this theatre is now closed.
Was this originally a Regal? What’s with the jaunty “Regal Cinemas” with the circle 16??
The photo above is for the Valley 99 Drive-In right off CA-99.
Looking at the address provided above, it’s oddly close to the former Cobb/Regal Palace 18. Is it possible that this theatre was turned into the Palace?
Is there any more info on this? Who ran it?
Where in the current complex were the original screens? The weird wacky ones off the side of the lobby?
An article in a 1995 issue of Boxoffice says that Cineplex Odeon opened their 7-plex in 1994.
The Loew’s 6-plex was an addition that came in 1997.
Looks like this was built by Eastern Federal Theatres. Unless there was a local chain in FL called Regency, I assume Regency was just the name of the theatre?
Thanks Joe. Great info. I wish I could make a giant “family tree” of the theatre biz. We are all so inbred, so to speak.
In my head — Cinematreasures = stories and anecdotes
Cinematour = photos.
Also — I have enough of a headache trying to keep Cinematour information up to date. If I spend too much energy getting photos to both sites I’ll go mad.
So add it?
