Located in the area around UVA know as “The Corner.”

Following its demolition in the early 1990s, the location was home to regional record store chain Plan 9 Music. Following the departure of Plan 9, the site housed a tanning salon and, currently, a convenience store.

On a personal note, I saw Return of the Jedi here several times (either in 1983 or in re-release) and my first James Bond film (License to Kill)in 1989.

I also worked at Plan 9 for a number of years.

The Terrace Triple was operated by Carmike Cinema in the mid-90s.

Wellespring commented about Greenbrier I and II Twin Cinemas on Aug 15, 2012 at 11:54 pm

The Greenbrier operated as a discount theater for a short time near the end of its life. I believe it was associated with the Regal chain during that period.

I remember seeing a good number of Columbia and Tri-Star pictures here in the 90s, Last Action Hero and The Professional among them.

They had some of the most uncomfortable seats in Charlottesville, but what I wouldn’t do to sit in them again.

Wellespring commented about Skywalk Cinemas on Jul 19, 2009 at 8:48 pm

I found an article in the October 15, 1972 issue of Box Office magazine heralding the opening of the Skywalk Cinema. It includes an architectural drawing and interior and exterior photos. If anyone is interested in seeing this article drop me a line.
