Aladdin Theatre Corp. had an American theatre ? 1925-? 1930
An Lowe’s now stands on the site of the drive-in which is at 1225 Highway 50 West.

This opened as the Citadel 8 $uper$aver in the early 1990’s.
This opened as Cooper 70 in November 1963 and became Cooper 123 on December 24th, 1970. The grand opening celebration for this cinema was cancelled when President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. Cooper sold it to Commonwealth in 1975. I think it closed in the late 1980’s.
I believe that it stopped showing movies in 1972.
I show that the Chapel Hills Sixplex was opened by Mann in 1982 and an separate 9-screen cinema in the mall opened in 1985 with the older screens renamed Chapel Hills 10-15. Carmike bought out Mann in the region in 1992.
If you look at the mall’s directory, you will find the two separate locations.
No movie posters in front of the theatre by the time the Googlemobile passed it by. Looks closed.
