As the theater headed into bankruptcy, Baldridge faced new problems.

On Sept. 12, a Labor Department investigator showed up at Baldridge’s Dallas office in hopes — unsuccessful that day and since, according to court documents — of retrieving a number of documents related to a 401(k) plan tied to one of his companies.

About a week before Christmas, the theater owner was arrested again. Police noticed that Baldridge driving his silver four-door Lexus on the wrong side of the road.

He was stopped in the theater parking lot just after midnight and charged with driving while intoxicated. He spent the next 12 hours in jail.

Woodward showed up for work at the Metro Cinema on Jan. 18, one day after the Texas comptroller’s office seized a few computers and point-of-sale machines for nonpayment of state taxes. Without the machines, it was impossible to sell movie tickets, Woodward said.

So, he and a couple of other managers tried to call Baldridge to find out what to do next. They couldn’t reach him.

Without direction, Woodward and another manager printed signs at a nearby Kinko’s and taped them to the door, telling customers that the theater was closed indefinitely.

Even when times looked tough for the theater, Baldridge had remained positive, Woodward said. He was fond of telling employees, “I’m not going anywhere.”

But Woodward still wondered.

“I had that gut feeling, ‘This probably isn’t going to be around much longer,’” he said. “But it definitely happened a lot sooner than I thought.”

I also noticed that all the English language movies moved to Place Charest from Ste Foy 14. In the early 1990’s all the English movies were at Place Quebec and Cinéma de paris.

what about Cinema Cartier or Le clap in Ste Foy.
Its a shame that a third of the screens disappered this year in the QC area.

This was one of the typical Cineplex Odeon “Jewelbox” theatre built in the late 1980’s.

Typical Cineplex Odeon carpet, the same carpet is used in the Montréal area’s Langelier 6 (now Guzzo) and Cote des Neiges 7 (now Foutune)
