The comment by cvolosin mentioned that one of the many previous operators of this location was Madstone Theaters. They reopened an old GCC 8 in Atlanta, seemed to have plenty of money available to remodel, but no idea of how to actually run a theater. This is the first mention of this odd little company (except for the one in Atlanta) that I have seen on CT and I would be interested to hear anything anyone remembers about them.

Information needs to be updated. The theater opened was opened by AMC around 1988. It was one of the premier houses in Tampa. They had the exclusive showing of Schindlers LIst and the remake of Cape Fear with Robert DeNIro and Jessica Lange.

This theater has re-opened as the Cobb CineBistro with six screens as indicated above. Information needs to be updated.

Current construction is under way to re-open the cinema as a COBB Cinebistro' with 6 auditoriums.. this is a absolute GUT RE-HAB and I suspect that there will be no remenents of it’s former AMC or Madstone Decor, as all exit doors had been re-located on the back walls, and the walls have been moved inside.

I managed this location prior to Sunrise getting booted by developers, as the condos that were to be built are not anymore.

The latest sign I saw was opening in Late Fall 09'
