Was this the theater that showed Free Kids Movies in the Summer ? I vaguely remember our church kids going to see a movie at Regency Mall probably 1990s ( I turned 13 in June 1990) and walking through mall and Ladies Clothes Store and girls telling me not to look at undergarments.

I cannot remember what movie, year, or seeing too many movies at either Regency theater.

I know somebody complained about putting “personal” comments on here, but I can’t help it in this case! If any of you know Mike, THIS is the best way to get in touch with him!! Tell Mr. Morrison that I’m open to a get together whenever y'all want. We’ll work something out. It’d be alot of fun. Maybe it’s a good thing we can’t invite Dray…he’d probably get us kicked out of wherever we’d meet! (Miss that old SOB!)

Mike, I’ve been terrible about responding to things on here and the things you’ve sent my wife on Facebook! Yes, I did see the GCC trailer a while back, and it brought back some memories. Strange how a little bit of music can pull memories out of the back of your head, huh? Whenever I hear the theme to “Caddyshack”, I’m reminded of picking up popcorn and drink cups and then sweeping up corn and Milk Duds..all while singing and juking to “I’m Allll Right!”!! Funny stuff!

My summer camp used to take movie trips here when I was younger. I remember once they took the younger kids to see Disney’s Dinosaur and us kids 10 and older got to see Big Momma’s House lol. I also remember my mom’s friend pulling her niece and I out of school early to see the Flintstones here lol.I tried to buy popcorn from here once and I didnt have the quarter I needed to complete the transaction, so the concession lady gave me the popcorn and said that I had to pay the quarter back the next time I came lol. Theater closed before I could go back though.

I drove around town with a huge camel on the top of my car promoting “HAWWPS”.Back in old days. I removed all comments about charles,except the one you wrote,Russ,might want to remove it.Told Charles I did take them off.Zack was always thinking up something,“Whorehouse” promo was pretty HOT. I think Sherri showed more in the Lobby than on the screen,what I saw,and I hate Musicals was pretty tame for an R rated Flick.

Since we just got over the fourth of July, it made me think about past movie promotions. We didn’t do anything for the 4th. I remember Mother’s Day, we gave little apple pies and carnations to each mom. For some of the midnight movies we had magic shows. There was some comedy/love story about a maid and we had a drawing for free maid service. For Stallone’s movie Cobra, we had a stuffed real-looking cobra at the box office and let people take pictures with it. I’m sure I’ll remember more later. Y'all remember any? Will people from other boards read this and join in?

Chuck, I think Mike’s point is that the “big shots” have a habit of NOT listening to the local people for ideas of where theaters should be located. I know General Cinema didn’t. Mike and I both told them that they should consider putting up a theater around the Augusta Mall side of Augusta, instead of behind the Regency Mall. Years after the Regency Exchange went belly-up, a theater sprang up in Evans and one just a few miles away from the Augusta Mall. Now there’s going to be a new one off of RiverWatch Pkwy and I-20. So, the point is that corporate bigwigs should sometimes listen to the local boys.
