Seating changes when seats are replaced. For its last 10 or so years, the count was #1-311, #2-296, #3-312. The theater was originally called Castleton Square 4-6, with 1-3 being located inside the mall, and this one outside. From the time it opened, they tended to run the foreign films which played the city. In 1993, parent company General Cinemas opened the Clearwater Crossing 12 two miles away, closed the Castleton 1-3, and made 4-6 a full arts theater. In 1997 the name was changed to Castleton Arts, and the building given a makeover by its staff. They also started running their own film festivals. Closed in November of 2005 by their landlord, the Simon Mall company.

The new Castleton Square AMC does not run art films. Heck, the nearby Landmark doesn’t always run them!

It should be so listed. The building was razed in February of 2007 and replaced by a self-storage business.
