Cinemark may not have purchased it, but they are operating it for the time being.
An article in the March 1992 edition of Boxoffice states that NEI acquired this theatre from previous tenants Century Theatres Inc.
I know this was NOT Century/Syufy and don’t believe that the Century Cinema Corp was operating at this time.
This theatre’s completion was announced in the September 1991 edition of Boxoffice. RC Theatres was the operator.
I don’t know about Mann/Pacific but in an August 1991 edition of Boxoffice, it was cited that CinemaCal Entperises operated the theatre at that time.
According to an article in the August 1991 edition of Boxoffice, construction of this theatre was started by Cineplex Odeon Theatres.
This was actually built by Premiere Cinema Corp which was the company Mike Campbell formed prior to forming Regal Cinemas. Premiere was sold to Cinemark in 1989.
An article in the April 1991 issue of Boxoffice states that Regal Cinemas acquired the Capri from United Artists. Is that this Capri or the other one?
Was this originally the Movies 4? ACT III acquired a “Movies 4” in Carson City in 1990.
While Wallace operated it, it was the Movies 10, but I can imagine they added on.
Also, seeing that Scott Wallace (once CEO of ACT III) ended up running the theatre in his own company, it seems likely.
The ACT III, Regal and UA merger as described in the overview did not take place in 1998. Regal and ACT III merged at that time but UA did not join the action until 2002 when Regal Entertainment Group was formed.
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?
