From what I heard, a new theater will be built somewhere next year aross from the Target.
Regina, is the current manager you were referring to W.S. Rosser? If so, I believe he passed away, as I know two women are now in charge of the day to day operations.
The Angelina Twin is now closed. Lufkin’s only operaing movie theaters now are the Carmike Lufkin Mall 9 and the Cinemark Starplex 12.
I was manager of the Bellevue 8 from October 2007 to February 2008. While I might agree that the exterior lacks the luster of the Regal, I think the interior is quite superior to the competition, with a completely marble floor and Greek columns that give it, in my opinion, a very classic look. I thoroughly enjoyed running this theater; business just always depended on whether us or the Regal would get the product.
I am the new General Manager of the Carmike 6. It has been renovated a few years back, but still has the old time feel that’s missing from a lot of the multiplexes of today. We also have digital projection, as opposed to the old 35mm. film stock. I highly recommend everyone in the Nacogdoches area to come out and catch a movie. We usually get all product, albeit some movies a month or so after their initial theaterical release. Adult tickets are only $5.75 for matinees and $7.50 after 6. Children are $5.75 all day and seniors are $5 all day.
The theater opened in 1986. In 1994, Carmike bought all of the Cinema Worlds around Pittsburgh. Phil Koutsoulou has been the General Manager since the theater opened.
I’m sorry. My e-mail address is
Ed Blank, I just wanted to leave you a message as your name came up in a conversation I had last night with a manager that’s been around for a while. I’m the son of a predominant theater company VP, who used to work as a projectionist/manager around the Pittsburgh area and we were talking about the old days of Cinema World and the other theaters that used to be around the area. I, myself, am only 22, but I miss these theaters that were such an essential part of my childhood. As a child of the movies, I myself have many memories, most hauntedly probably when there was a shooting at the Manor Theater in Squirrel Hill and I went there the next day and could see the blood stains on the walls. All in all, these great theaters seem to be mostly a thing of the past, with the exceptions being the aforementioned Manor, the Squirrel Hill, and the Southland 9, which truly is my favorite place to see movies. I would love to get a chance to talk to you some more about this, as I am now in the theater management business myself as well. It was good, and somewhat coincidental, to see you on here.
This theater is great; one of the last of its kind. Originally a bowling alley and opened by Cinema World, it still has an old school, family feel missing from the multiplexes of today, plus it has really big auditoriums. The managers there have been around for a while and give the place a real down-to-earth, personal touch that’s really missing in today’s society. All in all, my top place to see a movie in Pittsburgh.
This used to be a five screen theater when my dad managed it (back when it was a Cinema World). I think the set-up was much better as a five plex than it is as the ten plex (stadium seating and all).
My dad used to be the manager here when I was a kid. I remember seeing “Pee Wee” and other similar type movies here. It closed around 89 (I was 3 or 4 at the time).
This theater is located in the nearly closed Big Beaver Plaza just off of Rt. 18 in Beaver Falls, PA. The only thing that still appears to be open in the plaza besides the theater is a Dollar General store. You can still see, though, what used to be an excellent Chinese Buffet and a Comet Supermarket Warehouse. Used to be a happening place in Beaver, now will probably be the next cinema treasure to close, :(.
