Heh — I forgot that IL is east of the Mississippi. I used to audit those theatres all the time. :)
Two things: This theatre was never operated by Century Theatres, it was always a Cinemark but was rebranded a Century after Cinemark purchased that company.
Secondly — many of the Century Theatres (of California) are being marked as operated by “Century Circuit Inc.” which if I understand correctly, represents the circuit from the 1960’s that operated on the east coast. These are two very separate companies. A good rule of thumb is that the modern company never operated a theatre east of the Mississippi (and the east coast chain operated very few west of the Mississippi).
The photo pictured above is NOT the Hollywood Tyler Rose. If I recall that’s the Cinemark Hollywood 15 in Garland, TX.
You are correct. This was originally called the Nickelodeon. In fact I think that CinemaStar (the folks that built it) were originally called Nickelodeon… not entirely sure though.
There is an article in an early 90’s Boxoffice magazine about the opening of this theatre, I forget which though.
Regal Entertainment opened this theatre, it was never part of the original Edwards Theater Circuit.
Most of the fields have been resealed in 2013.
I believe this theatre is now closed.
Was this originally a Regal? What’s with the jaunty “Regal Cinemas” with the circle 16??
Looking at the address provided above, it’s oddly close to the former Cobb/Regal Palace 18. Is it possible that this theatre was turned into the Palace?
Is there any more info on this? Who ran it?
Where in the current complex were the original screens? The weird wacky ones off the side of the lobby?
An article in a 1995 issue of Boxoffice says that Cineplex Odeon opened their 7-plex in 1994.
The Loew’s 6-plex was an addition that came in 1997.
Looks like this was built by Eastern Federal Theatres. Unless there was a local chain in FL called Regency, I assume Regency was just the name of the theatre?
Thanks Joe. Great info. I wish I could make a giant “family tree” of the theatre biz. We are all so inbred, so to speak.
In my head — Cinematreasures = stories and anecdotes
Cinematour = photos.
Also — I have enough of a headache trying to keep Cinematour information up to date. If I spend too much energy getting photos to both sites I’ll go mad.
So add it?
Are we sure that photo belongs to this theatre? That’s pictures of a Premiere Cinemas bank of poster frames and I don’t recall them ever operating a theatre in Arkansas.
Very similar to: http://www.pccmovies.com/images/theaters/orlandopremierecinema/11.jpg
Looks like this was perhaps started by Resort Theatres or Metropolitan? Looks identical to the theatres in Indio, Calexico, and the stalled project in La Quinta.
Sun & Surf is not Carmike. I was just there in April and was being operated by Fox.
Wallace did not own Hollywood Theatres in 1999. They were their own company that later Wallace purchased.
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.
