Mike I saw KArate Kid there too. Right around Labor Day of 84. Also saw Secret of the Sword(He Man movie) and Iron Eagle.
This is wrong. It opened in 1996. November 22nd 1996 to be exact. I know as I worked there the first day.
Cienmaven, its funny you mention those movies cuz i saw 2 of them. Rambo and Goonies. Goonies was was with my brother and friends and Rambo with my dad and brother. My parents let me see many R movies when i was young.
Exact date this one opened(to show official releases) was 11-22-96. I worked there for about 7 years and it was a pretty good place up until AMC bought it out in 2002. They nto give as many benefits to their employees. however, tehy would let us prescreen movies the day before to make sure the print was ok.
BWchicago, i remember the bulk candy. they also had a soft serve yogurt machine which was not used properly. The thearte did well until AMC Barrington showed up in 1998. Form then on, it was still popular but not as much. Titanic was there from its opening date until Godzilla kicked it out. That was probably the biggest failure with havign 9 screens and not filling one of them. Titanic was still selling out in one of the small theatres before that.
I remember that the last movie to show there was Kindergarten Cop. April of 1991. It was there the last 2 weeks and I saw it the first week there. I remember that the woman who sold the tickets had red hair and I assume was part of the Rocky Horror that was done there fromt ime to time.
