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.

The marquee of this theater was shown on the TV show “America’s Got Talent.” A contestant from Pineville is one of the finalists.

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.
