This theatre is massive from the outside and from the inside, is designed as a crashed space ship. The auditoriums are not called houses, but “Star Gates”, and there is a gigantic dome in the middle of the lobby with constant shooting stars and echoing voices from young patrons.

If you look closely, one of the wings has slanted lines and bolts to emphasize the fact that the spaceship has crashed and is buried in the ground. Overall, a wonderful piece of architecture that stands as a staple to the Penninsula community.

The description sounds very unique and unlike any AMC I can recall near me. Can someone send a picture link or post? Thanks.

It’s really not that exciting. I have been there and it looks like any other boring Megaplex

According to the City Directory, this theater opened in 2003. Still thriving – good prices for us seniors

The City Directory is WRONG! This theater opened in the spring of 1998 – see the link below for a brief snippet from the Virginian-Pilot on the opening:
