This ten screen cinema treasure was opened on December 10, 1982. The theater was owned by Consolidated Theaters. It was originally a six screen until the early-1990’s when it was purchased and retrofit by Carmike Cinemas. The theater was a first run theater until October 2004. It is presently a second run theater.

Most people do not accept this theater as a great cinema treasure. I had the honor of running the booth at this wonderful little theater. It took a lot of work but was well worth it. I miss it every day.

Consolidated Theaters opened this location in competition to the four year old Hoover Twin which was built by ABC and was by then operated by Cobb. According to the hsvmovies.com website the opening features were The Toy, 48 Hours, American Gigolo, Ridgemont High, and Dragonslayer. That is only five so maybe they interlocked one of them. Cobb responded to this by opening their own 6 in the Hoover Square Shopping Center the next June.

Again, according to hsv, Carmike bought Consolidated out around 1991. By 1997 they had expanded this location to 10 screens and Cobb had closed the Hoover Square. At the moment this still seems to be a discount second run location.

I believe this theatre is now the AMC Classic Lorna Ridge 10.
