That right, In the Cortez Plaza EAST. It opened as Jerry Lewis Twin Cinema on Christmas day, 1971 and renamed in 1973 when the Jerry Lewis franchise fell apart.

Scan the pieces and than use this from Microsoft http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ice/

The software will create one large image out of the pieces.

TAMPA – The theater has been targeted for closing for some time, a Regal executive said.

The curtain is closing on Regal Hollywood 20, one of the first mega-plexes to take root in a burgeoning area of Lutz.

The glitzy cinema-plex, in the Northgate Square shopping plaza at Van Dyke Road and Dale Mabry Highway, will turn off the lights for good Dec. 10.

Richard Westerling, Regal Cinema Inc.’s senior vice president for marketing, said the Regal Hollywood 20 was in “an underperforming location.”

It has been targeted for closing for some time, he said, as the corporation evaluates its properties for profitability. In June 1999, the company closed its Northdale Court 6 cinema on North Dale Mabry Highway.

Regal isn’t the only theater chain fallen on hard times. In August, Carmike Cinemas filed for bankruptcy and closed Main Street 6 on North Dale Mabry Highway in Carrollwood.

Regal Cinemas, based in Knoxville, Tenn., operates seven cinema complexes in the Tampa Bay area, including the Regal Citrus Park 20 at Citrus Park Town Center, which opened last year. There are no immediate plans to close other locations, Westerling said.

As for the employees of Regal Hollywood 20, he said it is corporate tradition to offer them jobs at other Regal cinemas.

Regal also will operate a 10-screen movie theater and Imax at the Channelside entertainment-retail complex along the Tampa waterfront. That project was slated for 15 screens but was scaled back to 10 screens. Its opening has been postponed several times; the new target is mid-January.

Regal Hollywood 20, open since October 1997, is in a stand-alone building on the west side of the shopping plaza.
