The Cinema Center 8 went through numerous owners and numerous remodels. The theatre opened as a single screen in 1968. Sometime in 1975 Dubuque Theatre Corp. took over the theater and converted it to a fourplex. During 1985 a fifth screen was added.

In 1988 the theatre was operated by Excellence Theatre Corp. Later in 1991 the theatre was taken over by Carmike Cinemas. In 2004 three more screens and stadium seating was installed. At this time the Kennedy Mall cinemas became a discount house. It was closed October 10, 2008.

Attended a showing of the 3rd Pirates of the Carribbean movie this past week. The movie theater was great. Large auditorium, pretty clean, decent prices. However, the place was EMPTY. I am afraid this place will not be open much longer. The Kennedy Mall Theaters across the street look as if they have gone out of business as well.

The timeline is a little off. The expansion to 8 screens was done in the late 80s/early 90s and the stadium seating renovation never came.

This theatre opened as the Kennedy Road Cinema. This needs tobe added to the previous name list.
