This mega-monster sits on sacred ground for me. Saw many a movie at this classic drive-in.

One B-movie horrorfest marathon, included “The Toolbox Murders” & “Mansion Of The Doomed.” Circa early/mid 80’s IIRC.

I still see movies at the 24, but it’s not “fun.” Sometimes even dangerous.

Two years ago, there was a gang related incident in the parking lot, that resulted in one death, and several wounded. I actually heard the slugs whizzing by, and took cover behind my vehicle, while securing my Glock from my trunk.

A re-work of “The Hills Have Eyes”, isn’t worth getting shot over…

To me, this place was and always will be “The Big Purple Monster” because of the bizarre use of neon all over the facade.

Does anyone know when Regal moved in and built this place on top of the old drive-in?

Well, DOONYMAN we know she shut the doors in 1998 with “Deep Impact."
Seems like the 24 has been there a good, long time to me. I would guess it likely had to be going under construction by 2000. I dated a gal that lived near there around 2002 or ‘03. I am sure it was already giving off the neon glow by then.

Maybe someone else has a better memory, than me!

An ugly and unmemorable place to see movies with fairly indifferent staff.

I would agree. Unfortunately, it is the nicest theater within 20 minutes of here, so I go there a lot. And the projection is usually good to great, unlike at the other theaters around where I live.

Lots of neon but not as much as the Regal 27 in Nashville.

Doonyman – Regal moved in in May of 1999. Their first public screening was the midnight pre-open of Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace. I’m not certain when they actually began construction.
