No, it’s still part of the original 6-plex. They may have moved the entrance, but the positions are still pretty much the same. Otherwise, it would have taken longer than it did to transition from 6 to 14. It was closed less than a year. Not to mention, a waste of still useable theater space.

Some of the original 6 screens were incorporated into the new build. There was additional work done, aside from making the screens all stadium seating. The screen entrances used to be lower than the rest of the mall, as referenced in my earlier comment. They may have added, or moved, a screen of two. I haven’t had many movies on that side of the Cineplex, and have not gone there as frequently since the Galaxy 14 in Chesterfield set their lower prices.

The theater was not on Target’s parking lot. There were two other businesses between Target’s lot and the theater. Children’s Palace and Showbiz Pizza.

According to their website, they’ll be upgrading to digital projection next week. I guess they still make enough of a profit to afford the upgrade. Maybe they’ll make other upgrades as well. The last time I went there, an armrest fell off one of the seats, and you could clearly hear the movie in an adjacent screen. It was definitely better before they split it into three screens.

Judging by the website, the theater’s status needs to be changed to closed. The site only lists three theaters, and Jamestown is not one of them.

I remember three movies I saw at Cross Keys. Pete’s Dragon (we had won tickets, along with LPs of the story and music in a contest), The Money Pit and GoBots: Battle of the Rock Lords.

I recall only seeing two movies there. The Muppet Movie and Back to the Future. Other than what I saw, I don’t remember much about the theater.

After nearly a decade and a half, St Charles County will have an AMC theater again, in the fall of 2014.

Best first run theater bargain in the region. $4 matinees, $7 evening. $1 higher for Mega Screen, $3 more for 3D. It’s worth the extra drive to save money.

The car dealership that stood there vacant has now been torn down, and a new Plaza Tires recently opened,

PrezGAR commented about AMC Regency Square 8 on Nov 10, 2012 at 1:58 pm

My favorite memory of the Regency is June 24, 1989. I saw the first showing of the day of Batman, and upon exiting, found two tickets for a late matinee on the ground, so I saw the same movie twice in one day.

The last movie I saw there before it closed was Mystery Men.

PrezGAR commented about 270 Drive-In on Oct 27, 2012 at 1:08 pm

What I remember most about the 270 was the playground. They had this large metal turtle, about the size of a sea turtle, I would guess, that kids could climb on.

The first movie I recall seeing there was Return of the Jedi, in May of 1983. The last movie I saw there was Sgt Bilko, in early 1996.

The first time I ever went to a movie by myself was there. The Empire Strikes Back. Not it’s inital theatrical run, but a 1982 re-release. I didnt want to see The Last Unicorn.

Only went there once, for a free screening of Transformers: The Movie. (The original animated one, not the Michael Bay movie.)

PrezGAR commented about Northland Cinema on Oct 21, 2012 at 2:05 pm

The last movie I remember seeing there was He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword in 1985.I also remember seeing Star Trek II and Spacehunter (in 3D) there as well. There were probably others since it was the closest theater, but we would go to the North Twin, 270 or Halls Ferry more often.

PrezGAR commented about Chesterfield 14 on Oct 21, 2012 at 1:58 pm

It should be noted that one of the screens is an IMAX theater. Not sure how long it’s been there, since I only went to that particular theater for the first time this year. Before then, I had not been to an AMC since the Regency in St Charles closed.

This has been my theater of choice since the early 90s. Never went to it when GCG ran it.

Having to use a wheelchair since the late 90s, I remember the old entrance, before they expanded it. They had a wheelchair lift to get down to the auditoriums. Sometimes, you had to wait for someone to operate it after the showings.

The best time to go here is before noon, when the shows are cheap. ($6 currently.)
