Ads for the Showboat III started appearing in the Spokesman Review in late 1978.
This was never a National Amusements theatre. This was a Transcontinental/Lippert Theatre.
No longer Regal — operated by Infinity Theatres it seems.
The actual address while the theatre was open was 791 Thau Way.
An article in the 12/4/1991 edition of the Greenville News reported this 12,000 square foot two-screen theatre closed the previous Saturday 11/30/1991.
Address was 4396 Stevens Creek Blvd
Each tier has a catwalk.
This is no longer operated by AMC. It is operated by a local company in partnership with Phoenix Theatres Entertainment from TN. The renamed the theatre Lyric 3 Cinemas.
This no longer appears on Phoenix’s website.
This area was loaded with theatres that all were ultimately consolidated into larger more modern theaters. I would love to have seen it in it’s heyday. AMC had this and the Fiesta Village 6 nearby; and Harkins had the Poco Fiesta 4 and the Superstition/Fiesta 5 nearby. 19 screens made irrelevant once Harkins Superstition 25 opened, quickly followed by Arizona Mills 24 and AMC Mesa Grand 24 (now 14) a few years later.
I found an article dated 6/19/1975 from the Tucson Daily Citizen that explains “The projectors will start rolling after noon with "The Wind and the Lion” (PG) being shown in theaters 1 and 2, “Jaws” in 3 and the return of “Benji” in 4.
Somebody else will pick it up if the deal is right. As somebody who’s not from Anticoh, that whole shopping center seems like it was built in a weird part of town… don’t know that it meets with modern expectations the way the RAVE/AMC in Brentwood does.
This theatre closed as of 7/7/2019
And likely it’s not included as part of the discount since it’s a “Special Engagement”
What was its name when it closed?
Demolished or gutted?
General Cinema was the last operator of this theatre. They acquired it from Loews in 1972 and operated it until 3/30/1989. Was last known as the Fifth Avenue Cinema I-II.
Tom Moyer sold this theatre to his son Tim, it and some other area theatres operated as part of the Tim Moyer Cinemas chain before being sold back to Tom Moyer Luxury Theatres prior to ACT III purchasing it.
I remember this marquee, I think the complex had two of them. Must’ve been a pain to change every week, both sides of two identical marquees.
According to an an article in the 12/4/1986 edition of the Salem Statesman Journal, the Rio would be reopening the following day as the Fox, named so for the new operator’s business name, Fox Enterprises.
Theatre is being demolished this week.
This mall has been demolished.
Articles in the Fort Collins Coloradoan confirm that this was built by Highland Theatres, later acquired by Commonwealth, then United Artists. Research I’ve done for Cinematour suggests the theatre closed in 1999, which would make it unlikely it was ever a Regal Cinema.
I recall seeing an document kept by the Century Theatres' marketing team that suggested they operated the theatre from 2/9/1983-3/31/1988. I cannot vouch for how accurate this information is, but it’s a start.
I recall seeing an internal document kept by the Century Theatres' marketing team that suggested it was under their banner from 2/9/1983-6/8/1989. I cannot vouch for how accurate the information is, but it’s a start.
