Went there to see Star Trek for the second time. This place was never a theatre originally, as can be told by the carving. Tickets to the left and the first 4 theatres, 2 on each side had stadium seating, albeit, smaller, maybe 150 seats each. The latter 4 theatres were set up too strangely. 80 seats in 5 rows of 8 on each side. It felt like it needed a center section and these theatres were too wide and the screen was too close to the back (where you entered). The screen wasn’t centered as there was an exit to the right of it. It felt too uneven and too up close.

At the end of the night, there were 3 suitcases filled with film reels just left. Not too safe.

Those “suitcases"as they are refered to (which I personally HATE) being left out is so the film delivery people who have keys can come thru the night to pick them up. This is how its been done for 80 years.

The Cinema North chain of Vermont were there untill cash problems occured & the doors closed. The theater was in need of theater & seat repairs also equipement repair and upgrades which were done during the closed period. It is now Carmel Movieplex 8 and has 1116 seats total for 8 theaters. Theaters #4,5,6 are the 80 seat capacity & is were the older films play after being in the larger #1,2,3,7,8 theaters. Vintage style projectors are in use there at present with new lamphouses. It should be noted that the theater is of a contempoary style & is still undergoing renovations and upgrades during the closed hours of operations. As for films in the lobby with cameras watching & still inside the building under lock & key..that is typical of alot of theaters..you still need at least $40,000 worth of used projector gear with some kind of audio system to play it! Theater has been at that location for some time as the overall appearence looks to be from 80’s -90’s. The only carving seen is the one in front of the Mexican restaurant next door, good service after a movie .

New screens,new masking, digital projectors & sound systems ! New wall materials & paint along with a impressive concession. Pictures were crystal clear , sound was quite impressive, I am not sure if it was THX certified but did sound like it. There must be new management as the place was very clean & seemed well taken care of, no broken lamps,seats were not torn up as before. 3D is present in this theater.
