Thankfully, no not part of Rave. National bought the IMAX across the way back in 2008 in addition to adding Chatters Bar & Grill which always seems empty. Update to 17 screens with the IMAX.

This theatre has 14 screens, and a live comedy venue. Not 20.

Yes. This theatre is closed due to extensive flooding just like the Mall. No word on when it will reopen, but the mall is saying three months.

I’m surprised no one has posted here in a while about this place. Although I have been absent from CT for some time, I finally went back to the old Showcase Buckland Hills recently to see The Dark Knight in Imax. I will say their IMAX screen is a bit on the small side. I was VERY impressed with the renovations that seem to be completed now.

They’ve added two screens and converted two theatres into Directors Halls. They also closed a theatre to add Chatters and a food court, but closed the back of the lobby, and turned it into a huge concession stand and another theatre. So they have 18 screens now.

I was talking to an employee, and I learned that they plan to introduce CT to the everpopular Lux Level in the near future by renovating theatre one.

In addition to the regular fare at the concession stand, one can get Pretzel Depot, Nathan’s, Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, Sbarro’s or a full meal with drink at Chatters. I want to try out the Director’s Halls next, and can’t wait for the Lux Level that I’ve heard so much about.

All in all, I used to hate this cookie cutter theatre that was always overcrowded. It’s still crowded, but for some reason just seems better run since the cinema de lux conversion.
