Hoyts Cinemas opened the Carousel Mall 12 with the Carousel Center Mall in Syracuse on Friday October 19, 1990. The complex was the largest and at the time the nicest multiplex to ever open in Syracuse, and was an immediate success. Over the next three years the theatre became one of the most successful in the chain, and Hoyts made the decision in late 1994 to split what was originally Theatres 4 and 11 in half to allow the theatre more programming options.
The Carousel Mall 14 remained wildely successful and just two years later a five screen expansion (two additional screens created in unused space on the theatre level and three screens behind the food court on the second level) opened, bringing the total to 19. In 2002 the theatre was sold to Regal Entertainment Group and in March of 2003 the complex was christened Regal Cinemas Carousel Mall 19.
Regal undertook a massive renovation project in 2005 that added stadium seating and digital sound in each auditorium, a completely new concession stand, as well as a completely new box office. Two screens were lost during the renovation when the auditoriums that were split in 1994 were actually restored to their original size. Independent and foreign films were given a home at the complex when Regal made it one of the seven New York members of the company’s “Cinema Art” program in 2003.
The Carousel Stadium 17 has also been home to the Syracuse performances of National CineMedia’s “Big Screen Concerts” series since the first stage of renovations opened in May of 2005.
