i posted this in the comments on the other lawrenceville theatre page, but i’ll do it here also. I’m sure people remember an old movie theatre that was where Phoenix High School is now at. I saw True Lies there a while back. Its not listed on this site. It sure wasn’t too long ago that it was still in business. Phoenix High was built in 97, so i assume this place closed down in late 95 or sometime in 96. I remember the parking lot was very big and you had to park all the way down to the end of the parking lot because thats where the theatre was located. I looked all over the net and can’t find anytime about this place. Its as if it never existed.
Hey i got a question. There was an old movie theatre that used to be where Phoenix High School is now. I remember seeing True Lies there back in the hayday. This theatre is not listed on this site. I’m sure the locals will have more information on it. Only thing i can think off is that maybe its listed under a different city. It used to be in the far back of the parking lot. During its last years, most people wouldn’t even know there was a theatre back there. Parking lot was very big and empty.
This reply is to Mike Rogers post above. The list that you listed brought back memories. I worked at this place around 2001 and i remember all those movies, including the trailers of those movies. We enter the auditoriums 10 minutes before each movies ended to clean up. Trust me, we heard and seen the last 10 minutes of every movie so much that we started to reenact every single last 10 minutes of every movie. Good times.
Not a bad place for 2.00. Me and my friends call this place the hispanic theatre due to the fiesta that happens in this mall. You know what i mean by fiesta if you’ve been here. This place has a unique layout. Like the fiesta, its kinda hard to explain unless you’re there.
Yes i remember the Mardi Gras next door. Good memories. This place is great to watch horror movies. The atmosphere of the place and rooms just seems very spooky and creepy. This is due to the old nature of the place.
My sister and many of my friends used to work here. All the managers who’s worked here for some times will tell you crazy ghost stories about this place. It seems to mainly be haunted upstairs. All the machines would turn off by themselves at times. Theres a story about a man and a suitcase who roams upstairs. I don’t know the full details about this story other then a few managers have seen him. Perhaps somebody can finish that story. My sister(she was a manager there) would go see movies by herself sometimes during the afternoon weekday dead hours. She usually seat near the entrance when she was by herself. She claims that sometimes she would walk and sit into a theatre knowing she was the only one in that room, only to turn around sometimes during a movie and realize theres somebody else watching near the top row. When the movie ends, she looks back and nobody is there. She did not see anybody enter or leave the room. Now remember, she always sits near the entrance. She also had an incident during a blade 2 movie where her seat was shaking violently with no one else in the room. One night after they closed, the closeout crew went to the Waffle house right by the theatre only to be conforted by an old lady who claims the theatre was built on bad land. The closeout crew of course laughed at her, cept for the few that did experience happenings before. It just freaked out my sister more. Theres actually a whole lot more odd and unexplainable stories to tell but i’ll leave it at that. But trust me, this theatre is haunted. Its not very haunted, because the only people who expereince these are usually long time workers and workers who worked upstairs. And by the way, anybody remember the local haunted house by the theatre. It was called Blood Oaks. Had a very creepy house hidden among the trees.
