Showcase Cinemas Buckland Hills opened May 22, 1998 on the former site of Builders Square. Built into this former warehouse, the project cost $8 million. The theatre has four large auditoriums with true stadium seating, all with about 290 seats each. The remaining cinemas have about 120 seats each and lower tiers (about 1/3 lower than the standard 18 inch riser).
The cinema offers hot foods (served from an auto fry at the concession stand). In 2004 theatre #16 was converted to IMAX, a wall to wall, floor to ceiling screen was built for the 3-D exhibition of “The Polar Express”. While the screens are a decent sized, this one is relatively weak by IMAX standards.
Ironically this theatre resides on Redstone Road. I don’t think thats a refrence to its owners.
Two extra screens were added, and then in December 2009, it was taken over by Rave Motion Picture Theatres, and in June 2013 was taken over by Cinemark. In 2018 Cinemark renovated the theatres with recliner seats replacing the aging stadium seats that Rave installed when they moved into the theatre, along with adding D-box seats and updating the IMAX to make it bigger. The Crave restaurant (on the left when you enter the theatre) has been converted into Cinemark’s own Movie Bistro and adding Pizza Hut to the menu. The theatre is now known as Cinemark Buckland Hills 18 + IMAX and the Rave sign has now been removed and a Cinemark sign put up once the renovations were completed.
