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.

First reporting:

The stars descended upon Charleston last night for the sold out premiere of the new film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel, ‘Dear John.’ The red-carpet event was a fundraiser for Carolina Autism.

Downtown’s Hippodrome was packed to the gills with media, fans, and premier attendees dressed to impress for the exciting event. Stars Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum hit the soggy red carpet to greet a hoard of screaming fans who were posted up with signs, camera and love for the hot young actors. The energy level was a 10 the entire evening.

The Post and Courier has a nice write-up on Sunday night’s premier and NBC News 2 has a video overview of the night and interviews.

TheDigitel was there and we snagged a bunch of great photos of the stars, including some of 7-year-old Braeden Reed, a resident of Daniel Island.

We’ll have video of our interview with stars Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum up as soon as we can.

Ken sorry to say you have no clue what you are talking about. After everything is paid most theaters are working on a 5% to 10 % profit margin..One of the worst % out of any biz in the nation.

I have seen over 2,500 movies and have never been in a theater that people boo the ads. Never not even in the early days of ads in NYC. My theaters at the time were the first in NY to run the COCA COLA ads when I worked for CO. I now get complaints from patrons because I don’t run ads before the shows at the theaters I own. Times have changed…….For the most part for the better.
