Lately the Lagoon has been showing a lot of first run hollywood fare in addition to the art films they’re known for. I’m a little worried that the indies will soon be gone completely.

Burnsville Center has a shiny new multiplex in the parking lot now. The decor is Atlantis themed, otherwise it’s pretty typical of multiplexes everywhere.

Yeah, in the ‘90s it was the spot. Unique? Maybe not, but the presentation was nice, and if you lived in the southwest corner of Minneapolis and it’s suburbs this was the place to go until Southdale opened up.

Absolutely the nicest place to see a second run movie in the Twin Cities. Clean, affordable, and in the nice downtown Hopkins development. Obviously not quite as plush as first run megaplexes, but well kept up nonetheless. Highly reccomended.

AMC Southdale is pretty much your standard multiplex. The surrounding mall, the first indoor mall in the United States, seems to be fading away a little bit. The food court is closing store by store, with only Sbarro, Subway, and the Great Steak and Potato Co. left. The theater however seems to be doing OK. Attendance is solid, comparable to other multiplexes in the area, and the location is still a very central one.

ferrisbueller commented about Eastgate Cinemas on Aug 16, 2008 at 8:32 pm

I’m kind of surprised by the reaction here. Maybe you guys don’t have experience with a totally flavorless big box; the Eastgate is a notch above. Obviously it isn’t a restored old movie house, the likes of which cinema treasures members drool over, but for a giganto-plex the eastgate had some charm.

ferrisbueller commented about Lake Manawa Drive-In theatre is officially demolished on Mar 13, 2007 at 5:36 am

That’s really too bad. My dad is from the Council Bluffs area (Lewis Township) and I’ve definitely seen that theater. Drive-ins are shutting down all of the time.
