I’m glad this place is staying open. They play a nice mix of movies here.

Besides, Pittsburgh already has too many shuttered multiplexes and cinemas.

So the description of this place should be updated to state that it will remain open.

Apparently after coming to new terms with the Galleria Mall management, this theater is going to remain open after all: View link

I’m guessing that this theatre was originally intended to be an arthouse since their two THX auditoriums on opening day were playing art films (along with two other art films in other auditoriums).

It was Cinema World then.

I think I was only in this theatre once. I saw the really bad “Loaded Weapon 1” here. That was circ 1992, so it still must have been a Cinema World.

“Galleria opened about 1989, under the name of Pittsburgh Theatre Corporation,” according to John Harper, who, with wife Cady, owned 50 percent. The other half was owned by mall developer Dick Zappala.

“We sold out interest to Zappala in 1991, I think, and he sold the theater to Jeff Lewine’s Cinema World a couple of years later. Cinema World sold to Carmike in the mid to late 1990s,” Harper added.

The sixplex switched to digital a couple of years ago.

One of the more nicely maintained multiplexes in the district, it splits first-run product with its nearby stablemate, Carmike 10 (a reconstruction of the Village Theatre).

Galleria 6 tends to keep the films of greatest interest to audiences under 12 (cartoon features, for example) and to audiences over 35, including films with older middleage stars and the occasional art-house moveover.
