Yeah, Will you are probably right,but we did it late after the last feature, sipping a few cold ones,and we did place it in a trailer that most likely was trashed after National Screen service got it back.,

Gastonia NC. Good way for a projectionist to get fired.

Check out GASTON MALL Theatre.I wonder if you ever talked a projectionist into doing what that operator did for us late one night.

Went to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince last weekend at the Riviera. In the last couple of years, I’ve seen several shows there. The theatre really is comfortable, the presentation excellent and the popcorn quite good. I am VERY glad to have the new Riviera in downtown. But jeez, every time I look at it, I realize it’s just another suburban cineplex on a downtown lot. Regal’s West Town Mall 9 is a much more handsome facility, inside and out.

Here and here are night photos from August 2008 of the Regal Riviera.

The Regal Riviera had a great first year. It was the second highest grossing theatre in Knoxville. Here is the article in the Knoxville News-Sentinel. View link
