I agree this need to NOT happen.
Glad they are better there. Here in Asheville they don’t even use the box office anymore you have to buy tickets at the concession stand which is ridiculous.
I saw Prince of Tides there in 1991 and Harry Potter in 2007 and it was first run.
Great pics brings back memories.
Carmike is the worst theater chain around. Good luck I refuse to go to their theater here in NC.
Ed Solero, it was kind of like the original shadow box screens at GCC when they first opened. They did not have masking like most Ruggoff theaters they had just a single strip that came down from the ceiling. Very strange.
Any new photos of the theater and inside? Did they keep the screen, curtains and marquee?
Nick 810,It did not. It had a screen in the wall.
mhvbear what is 15/70MM?
This makes me very sad. It’s a shame the 3 smaller theaters were already turned into stores. I would be happy even if they Divided the balcony and orchestra to make two theaters. Howard, I thought the auditorium had landmark status. I remember talking to a rep at United Artists when they added the extra small theater because I thought they had divided it than and I was told it preserved by landmark status and that was what they wanted to do but couldn’t. Sigh
Oh that is wonderful news.
I was there yesterday and the theater has been closed for about 3 years. The young man at King’s Bicycle rental was very nice and walked me in the theater. Since there is no electricity I had to use my flashlight on my I phone. The theater inside is intact and beautiful. They have deco décor and the screen sits on a stage. The seats seem to be in good shape. It would be nice to see this treasure reopen one day. The inside is used for bicycle storage.
Was there yesterday the theater closed in 2010. It is boarded up and they said the inside is intact. Update status to CLOSED.
Absolutely a great video.
Any chance of this theater reopening?
When did they reopen?
Did this drive in have a screen large enough o sow true scope films? The other drive ins in Tamps area didn’t and a film in scope was off the side of the screen in the bushes very frustrating.
This theater was moved to Flat Rock many years ago and operates successfully with a digital projector as the Flat Rock Cinema
Here is a question for anybody out there that went to the Boyd aka SamEric in the 70’s. I remember seeing Gone With The Wind there in Sept 1975 as a special one week 70mm re release. Can someone else confirm this. I am 200% it did play there. I also saw it in 1968 at The Randolph on the big Cinerama screen. Was Man of La Mancha the last film on the Boyd curved screen before it was removed?
The theater still sits boarded up and empty. Wish I had money to do something with it. Asheville could use a good regional or dinner theater.
Chuck 1231 I think the Asheville film festival is in Oct. It was last year. A note this theater has started showing slides, but still use the curtains about 5 minutes before the start of a film and at the end of a film. Very nice compromise.
Looking at the pictures from the paper I hope they are not removing the marquee.
I feel better with Bow Tie doing the bookings.
Ok I am confused. I was just on Bow Tie cinemas web page and they show the Ziegfeld as one of their theaters. I thought it wasn’t part of the Clearview package.
Anything happening with this theater? Why are all the east side theaters shuttering.
