I was at the grand opening Rivest. What a shame it never took off.

The official closing is Monday January 16. The theater will be demolished to make way for a strip plaza, a Panera Bread and a Chipotle. Just what Asheville needs another strip plaza and more restaurants. We have very limited theaters here. UGH

Mikeoaklandpark commented about South Philadelphia Drive-In on Jan 3, 2017 at 8:51 pm

I Know that in 64 it was the South Phila Drive In. I remember as it was the only time I was at the theater. It would be interesting to see fi someone can find when it changed names. To my knowledge it was operated by George Hamid who operated all the Atlantic City theaters and built the Stadium theater across the street which is now demolished.

All Broadway theaters operated as movie theaters at one time. All the Broadway house have photo’s of Broadway shows. If you look at the Palace it has more stage shows than movies. I think it’s cool that a theater that once operated as a movie theater and is now a legit theater shows all photos. If it was in the CT guidelines they would be deleting thousands of pictures. Happy New Year all. Looking forward to another great year here on CT

Howard I just saw your post from March 15 and yes it was. I was in Key West for 4 hours in 1998 on a cruise stop. If I can find my pictures I will try and upload them. It was awesome because it still looked like a movie theater?

Information is incorrect. See my last post. This theater is still a Carmike according to the staff and will be for the next few months. If someone has any other information please post it as I am anxious for AMC to get here. Thank you

Theaters 1-7 have been closed the past few weeks for renovation and installation of the recliners. Once they finish these 7 they will close theater 8-14. All theaters will become reserved seats. Not really sure how I feel about this. This chain is a first class chain.

Confirmed last night at this theater that this location will change to an AMC theater. I can only hope they convert it into one of their fork and dine theaters.

When this theater opened and battery Park they were opened under United Artist chain. Even after Regal purchase UA they kept the UA name except here and maybe Queens. Does anyone know why?

Mikeoaklandpark commented about AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 with IMAX on Sep 28, 2016 at 7:44 pm

So guys I have a question, is Imax different from Regal RPX? I saw Sully in RPX because I had a free ticket. I was not impressed. The screen in 2 of the other theaters are much larger than the RPX. I remember IMAX in Ft Lauderdale and it was this huge screen that the whole film covered. What I saw was like any other theater for a film in 2.35 aspect ratio, black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Not at all impressed.
