All those who contributed info should receive proper credit…even that which was edited years later. JAlex has been a beneficial resource for correcting inaccurate St. Louis area theatre info and should be credited.

Surely some current/former StL resident has a pic of the tall, vertical neon sign of the actual Thunderbird entrance which was located next to Goody Goody.

Spray em with a spray gun. Wouldn’t want any “residue” on my body from a joint like that!

This is a very good (and very LARGE) theatre. XD auditorium – including sound and screen – are larger than life! Regular auditoriums are equally great as well.

This is an AMAZING movie theatre. They have recently added AN ADDITIONAL XD auditorium as well as Luxury Lounger recliner seating. There’s a nice batch of large sized auditoriums in addition to the 2 XD rooms. Currently under construction in their lobby is Cinemark’s Reserve restaurant concept.

I’ll be relocating to the Plano area in 2017 and this joint will be one of my regular moviegoing stomping grounds!

Great movie theatre. Recently had Luxury Lounger recliner seats installed. XD room is decent and screens were nicely sized.

Non-descript standard issue AMC. No pizazz or personality.

Futureworld was released in 1976 – so the photo has to be from that year, not 4 years earlier

Thx 4 the tip on Lawrence. Seeing it in The Dome is one of my bucket list items. Glad to cross it off.

That’s exactly what happened. Theatre was under construction when Edwards bit the dust. The Howard Hughes Promenade opened up with this big massive shell of an empty theatre in the early part of Summer 2001. A short time later, NA bought it and named it The Bridge Cinema deLux and the crowds came in DROVES!

Yeah…the lasers are FANTASTIC! Never seen clarity, sharpness & colors popping like that before. Laser will be the norm in 2-3 years. And rightfully so.

Very nice theatre. May start going here instead of the AMC’s in Marina Del Rey. XD room is KILLER!

Picture obviously stolen from CinemaTour. Lame.

They don’t need a replacement with Regal LA Live (and, soon, Alamo Drafthouse) 5-10 minutes away.

Just drove by and saw the rebuild. I couldn’t help but smirk.

The grain in Inherent Vice was intentional to match the 1970 setting of the film. Sound wasn’t bad to me.

  1. I deleted many of my (argumentative) comments since they added no merit to the actual theatre pages. I’m much too old for pissing contests.

  2. Blog was always a good space to get the latest heads-up on theatres across the nation. Hate to see it go.

Chris Utley commented about AMC Marina Marketplace 6 on Oct 20, 2014 at 9:06 am

This theatre is reopened and renamed AMC Marina Marketplace 6. It reopened on 10/10 and is still 6 screens. The auditorium sizes are from 217 to 89. The seats are all leather rockers (non-reclining) and the concessions are mid-range (Mozzarella Sticks & Chicken Tenders along with the popcorn).

I’m inside the largest auditorium as I type this. Pretty nice!

Wow. The room where I saw Jedi, Superman II, and Die Hard in 70MM is now only 270 seats. Just…wow!

Take tons of pics & post ‘em when they reopen! God only knows when I’ll get back home to see the redo for myself!

They need to do it in the adjacent building next door (the one where all the auditoriums are on the lower level). The big house in there is an easy fit for an IMAX conversion.

Looks like they’re building apartments or offices on the lot where this theatre once was.
