LouB commented about Summit Park Cinema on Feb 19, 2008 at 7:22 am

I was in the mall on Sunday and you’re right,it is a ghost town. The lobby of the twin is used for retail space.
Across the road the sign for the Summit 6 is still in view although most of the letters, thanking patrons for 15 years of patronage,have fallen down.
I have some friends who were projectionists at the theatres and they remember those days well.

I recently saw the movie National Treasure:Book of Secrets here. Seeing this film on the Palace’s big screen with its elegant surroundings certainly made this special.

In the article above the author talks about seeing a movie on the big screen and how it differs from viewing it on TV. I couldn’t agree more.

I’m glad the Palace didn’t abandon showing films when they added live entertainment to the venue.
