17 weeks? I saw Wierd Science when I was still living down there but it was at a different theater in Hollywood (got free passes). Do you know who produced that ‘Snack Canyon’ cartoon, was that exclusive to UA theaters?

I think it was from the Coca-Cola Company. No it played all over in the various chains and independants.

No, they were not the same theater. The Movies at Plantation was in fact a 7 screen theater and if I recall correctly opened a few years before the 4 screen Broward Mall theater did. Both were located near the Mall. The four screen was directly across from the west side of the mall on a side street (that I forget the name of) that led about a ¼ mile or so south from West Broward Blvd.

The Movies at Plantation was directly on W. Broward Blvd. between Pine Island Road and University Dr.

That ad didn’t work for me. You might want to post it again.

Wow, I can’t for the life of me remember this movie theater ever existing. Maybe I just never noticed it since I used to frequent either the Mercede, Broward Mall 4 or the Fountains. Is that Google Maps street photo accurate? Was it where J Ristorante is presently? Any help on remembering this theater would be greatly appreciated.
