This theater needs to do 30,000 to 40,0000 a week to make money. Its dong $ 2,000 to 3,000 a week…. No future for movies unless they have a new concept.
Not doing very well— nice theater

There are many weeks the main auditorium grosses well below $3,000 for the week …
The theater was next to a pharmacy then fabric shop then Woolworths. Fanny Farmer was the last store at the end of the strip next to Sears .(Sears then became Pathmark)
no one gives a shit about old theaters================
YOU ARE SO CORRECT—–
I TRIED TO GET THIS THEATER LAST YEAR— $9,000 A MONTH TO RENT THIS DUMB AND THEY WONT BUDGE,
Nothing more going on theHippodrome is having a tough time as are mist single screens. The terrace is one of the busiest mom and pop theaters in the nation.
just found an old pic of the york outer lobby as you approach the box office …..has to be from the early 70s.
Find your niche and you can do it. We compete with 97 screens all chains,It can be done and well.
BYE ,BYE IMAX—-JUST A MATTER OF TIME……….
See my post July 2006.
What a shame to see this for sale. It was so cool the way it was before the big move .I have sent many people to there web site as to show people “how its done”.Over the last 16 months you can see they have lost there fire. The web site was not as cool and they did not keep it up like they use to. I have never been to this theater but have admired it from a far.
Yes we have sold as of 4/2/2010——-We had a great run ….GOOD LUCK TO PAUL AND BARBARA!
Now all digital and 3 d….
AWARD WINNING THEATRE TO BE SOLD TO AWARD WINNING FILMMAKERS .
It is with great thanks and appreciation to our patrons that I would like to announce the sale of the Terrace Theater on James Island. For the last three years it has been our pleasure serving the Charleston movie going public. Over this time we have seen the theater grow to one of the most prominent movie theaters in the state. I feel the time is now right to pass the torch. John and I are please to introduce you the new owners Paul Brown and Barbara Tranter. Paul ,Barbara and there son Sam are relocating to Charleston to continue offering Charleston the best movie going experience possible. Both are accomplished film makers and movie theater operators. I trust the Terrace will be in good hands. Barbrara and Paul will continue the Terrace tradition.
John Brieger and I will continue to operate South Carolinas premiere first run cinema down town under the new name the Hippodrome. The Terrace and the Hippodrome will continue to work together on the Charleston Film Festival!
It has been a pleasure making the Terrace Theater the best movie theater in Charleston.We could have not done it without you , our loyal customers.
We have lots of new business ventures for Charleston to be announce in the near future..
