This theater was evacuated on Sunday, July 12, 2012 when a portion of the facade came loose: View article and pictures.

Oh I forgot to mention…this is a 10 screen theater the building says cinema 12, the strip mall sign says cinema 14, and this description says 12 as well. On the upstairs level of the building by the projection booth there is a large space that would be cut into 2 very small theaters probably 80 seats or less. They also put in the pipes in for a men/womens room on the upstairs level which is currently blocked off to the public. They have been wanting to develope the upstairs for years but right now this theater is only running with 10 screens all connected in a single hallway on the downstairs level.

I worked here as a projectionist a few years back, being the intown theater it took off at first and is still a power house locally. I dont attend this theater anymore but i’ve got to say the GM is a great guy and works hard to keep that place alive. It is hard to work for companies who only care about the management of the theater. I think the quality of theaters like the south cove would benefit more if the owners instead of hiring alot of expendable people constantly, would just pay a few good employees a decent wage. Theater #3 the biggest house is equiped with Dolby Cp650 and a 5000w lamphouse. All the houses are equipped with big sky platters and Ernemann projector heads and DTS6AD in all theaters except #3. With stadium seating this seems like a great place to see a movie too bad they dont have a digital projector, or even digital preshows.

Looks like this theater has had its financial problems already:

Thanks for the map TC. I guess that the road is new and Google hasn’t updated their map of the area yet.

I’m not sure why the address doesn’t map since that is the address given on their website. From what I have read, the construction of this theater began in the late 1990’s. It was supposed to be a Hoyt Cinema, but Hoyt developed money problems and withdrew from its commitment. The building sat partially built for a few years until the Frank family showed interest in it. They negotiated with the Alessi Organization (the company that built the theater and mall) to complete the movie theater.
