AMC Barrett Commons 14

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened July 2, 1999. Considered by some locals to be the best theatre ever built! Includes bathrooms with 30 stalls each, ergo comfort seats with high backs, armrests actually big enough for two elbows, seat aisles 12 inches wider than normal, so you don’t have to stand up when someone passes along the row. Every screen is huge, floor to ceiling, including in the smaller auditoriums. Everything is kept neat and clean. The only drawback is the expensive refreshments. In early-2018 one section of the building containing ten screens was closed and mothballed. It was renamed AMC Barrett Commons 14.

The Barrett Commons opened around 1999 and seats approximately 6,000, more than two-thirds than the AMCs previous multiplex in the area, the Cobb Place. Here are photos of the Barrett from July 2007: 1 and 2.

As of early 2018, this multiplex should be renamed “Barrett Commons 14”, as the entire south wing has been closed due to poor business. They are keeping their multiplex version of Imax going. Still nice auditoriums, though.

It would be interesting to know if the now closed wing got the conversion to digital projection. There are several mentions on CT of megaplexes that did not convert all of the small, end of the hallway move over houses because they were unlikely to recoup the 75-100K cost. With recliners now the rage, some of those auditoriums might not seat more than 30. Or, maybe they did convert but later decided that they were not even worth the power bill. After all, do we really need shows of Solo starting every 15 minutes?
