Beaucathcer screens are great they are all really large. The ones at Caolina cinemas are ok except they are typical flat screens. They would work if they could have masking that came down, but the manager said the theaters are not wide enough and masking coming down would not solve the scope problem.
In was in the shopping center that is now a Ingles supermarket. I asked around and it was in the right corner of the parking lot behind a small little area with 3 shops.
When I go on a Saturday it is usally fairly crowded. In late 2009 they installed digital projection in 2 of the theaters. The big issue with Biltmore Grande is the sound is so loud that it ruins the movie. I went there 3 times when it first opened and have never gone back. As part of atni turssyt laws Regal had to give up operation of Hollywood. It was taken over and remoled really nice by Caolina cinemas a NC chain. Theonly issue is only 1 of the 13 theaters are capable of showing filmsin scope. The other theaters have the picture off to the side of the screen when a film is in scope. I spoke to a manage a few motnhs ago and he said they were getting all digital projectors by June and this mioght correct the scope problem. Iavoid this theater too.
To my knowledge there isn’t a large Indian population in India. Hey any kind of film that keeps a theater open is great.
I have a question. What was Vista vision? Was that another name used instead of cinemascope?
It look slike the seats from tyhe Cineeplex Odeon that was in Tampa, The Hillsborough 8
What killed thsi theater is Regal opened a 20 screen stadium theater right across the street.
Great news that this tehater is reopening. When it originally opened it was a very class A theater
I think it is great news. Ilived in that area from 83 until 93 and there were so many theaters that closed.
Great looking theater. Did they loose the marquee in the collapse?
Was this a former SamEric theater?
I was in Raleigh this past weekend and even though I didn’t go to the theater I have to sayt it is really very nice looking from the outside.
I thought they were releasing the 50th anniversary film in 70mm
Any update on what is in place of this theater now since the church closed
Saw Funny Lady here in 1976
I would think they are in violation of some anti trust law. I think that whoever approves meregers knew how many theater they would close they might have reconsdiered AMC purchasing the Kerasptes chain.
I saw 2 movies there in the late 70’s Dracula was one and I don’t rememebr the other. I do rememebr both were shown in flat. I saw one film there after it was twined, Bobby Deerfield.
The only memory I have of this theater is when i was 18 and it was a porno theater and me being a dumb nieve teenage got pickpocketed by the guy sitting next to me.
I just called the theater and it is independantly owned and not by Sunrise cinema who was the previous owner. WHoever got it from the Frank theater chain I applaud you. Please update to independant owner.
Opps sorry I didn’t see the earlier Dec post.
Apparently Frank’s had to drop this from thier purchase. I will get more informatin when the theater opens after 1pm today. They are operating as Sunrise Gateway and an independant theater. This is great news. Frank theaters would have ruined it.
When Frank theaters purchased these theaters in 89 they ruined them. They took the beautiful Strand and carved it into 5 small theatewrs. The Morrlyn was great as a twin, but they made that a 4 plex.
I agree with Terry and Eric, bring back 70mm. I agree 3d is BS. I saw 2 3-D films last year and would not spend the money to see another one.
Thi is wonderful news.
When it was run by Stanley Warner it was very basic. There were no curtains, but they did have masking that operated manually from the side of the screen. The screen was in front of a large stage. Not sure when they used the stage. When SamEric took over they put curtains including along the side walls and the back.
