Is this theater being expanded? The Google Street View of April 2013 shows quite a bit of construction. There was discussion in 2011 before the Cherokee Planning Board to expand to 6 screens.
Isn’t this the Center Theater? Same address, same street view.
It appears that this theater has been demolished.
Correct address is 1000 Delta Avenue. The Google Street View has been corrected.
The correct address is 1205 E Prairie St. I have corrected the Google Street View.
I think it’s safe to say that this place has been demolished.
The marquee of this theater was shown on the TV show “America’s Got Talent.” A contestant from Pineville is one of the finalists.
Is this a twin screen theater? The showtimes on the website seem to indicate this.
It appears that a parking lot is at that address now. Status should be “demolished.”

The “American Pickers” TV show on the History Channel featured some lobby poster boxes from this theater. They were salvaged by a couple from Pennsylvania who were visiting Missoula at the time of the theater’s demolition.
Some pictures can be seen here:
The theatre just reopened on July 4 with a screening of “Singing in the Rain.” Check it out on the website listed above.
This theater now has a cocktail lounge called “Take Five” and an expanded food menu.
It is now a supermarket.
Given the owners' comments, it seems that they just want out of the movie business. The digital conversion is just an excuse at this point.
Google street view of August 2012 shows the building still standing.(Barely)
t would appear that this theatre has been demolished.
It’s simply rude and distracting and shouldn’t be tolerated.
This theater stopped showing movies way before the 70’s. It was subsequently a drug store until abandonment and demolition.
The closing date of the 70’s given in the header is wrong. Bruce C’s picture has it right, 1951. I know, because I lived around there at the time.
