Previous Names: Carolina Circle mall 6, Circle Cinema 6
Located at the corner of Highway 29 North at Cone Boulevard. It was located on the lower level of the Carolina Circle Mall, across from the Piccadilly Cafeteria and next door to the Hallmark Cards shop. The Carolina Circle Mall 6 was Greensboro’s first ever multiplex cinema, and also the first theatre to be opened under Kansas City based American Multi Cinemas, being the first AMC theatre to be established in the state of North Carolina.
The grand opening of the Carolina Circle Mall 6 was on November 12, 1976, and it was a huge event. The premiere attractions were “Two Minute Warning”, “The Next Man”, “Alex and the Gypsy”, “Scorchy”, “Not Now Darling” and “Superbug:Super Agent”.
AMC Theatres kept it in operation until the late-1980’s when Carmike Cinemas took over the cinema. Under Carmike, the Circle Cinema 6 was a great place particularly for weekend late shows. It was closed in 2001.
The Carolina Circle Mall was demolished in 2002, and where the mall used to stand is now a Super Wal-Mart Center.
