Thanks all. So did UA operate other theatres in Knoxville that became Regal Cinemas prior to the formation of Regal Entertainment Group? (ie. before 2002).
The new River Valley 11 closed and an entirely new River Valley Stadium 14 was built to replace it. The address for the 14-plex is 110 New River Rd.
Did Regal really get this as early as 1985? I thought Regal wasn’t even a thing until 1987.
What were some of the previous owners?
The picture on this location is not the Courtyard. It looks more like the Hamilton 8 in Chattanooga, though I’m sure numerous Regals of the time looked like that.
This theatre opened on April 9, 1999.
Who operated this before Regal?
They seem to be using their Facebook page for showtimes etc.
Google Earths shows the theatre was there in 1995. I believe it was built sometime in 1994
Did this ever spend time as a Regal Cinema?
This theatre closed back in 2012.
So then you’re confirming that this was in fact opened as a Regal Cinema and then renamed to UA after the fact. Essentially, this was never actually operated by United Artists, but always by Regal Cinemas or Regal Entertainment.
Google Earth imagery would suggest that this 16-plex is an entirely new building.
From the wayback machine at Regal’s website I found this. Mt question is: So if Regal built it, did they just rename it UA when they formed Regal Entertainment or did UA buy it from Regal sometimebetween 2000 and 2002?
July 12, 2000- REGAL CINEMAS, INC. announces the GRAND OPENING of two new state-of-the art movie complexes, the BATTERY PARK 16 and the COURT STREET 12, marking their first foray into the New York City market. These two new cinemas join Regal’s recently opened COLUMBIA PARK 12 located in North Bergen, New Jersey. Both the Battery Park and Brooklyn Theaters will celebrate their openings with three days of festivities and community events.
Was this really an old Hoyts location? I hadn’t heard of Hoyts operating in Atlanta.
You couldn’t have gone out an emergency exit inside the auditorium?
I went last night and took quite a few photos. I’ll post here when they’re up at Cinematour.
Address should be corrected to Jefferson Davis Hwy — Google Earth historic imagery shows theatre has been demolished.
I don’t think it’s Cineplex Cinemas… just Cineplex.
The address was 1491 Fitzgerald.
That’s silly. The mall wouldn’t let you walk through after hours? How did they stop you from doing so?
Thanks for the info on that. Explains a great number of things.
I thought the same thing, but I don’t think that it was. I want to say that we did newspaper research for the Houston area and nowhere did it come up that Cinemark operated it. My only guess as to why it looks so Cinemark-ish is that it was pieced together using equipment and furnishings from a nearby closed Cinemark.
I find that theatre hopping is a lot easier now. With 20-30 screens, just go in one side and lay low, nobody will bother you. With the smaller theatres, people would notice when you were there all day because there were only 10 employees vs. the 20-30 that a multiplex has now.
I drove past here the other day for a photo and found that the section that housed the theatre has been torn down.
