Rumor has it Georgia Theatres are interested in the 12 plex as a dollar cinema, reducing the screens to eight..

When I was stationed at Fort Gordon, I remember seeing several movies here. Off the top of my head I remember seeing the first Austin Powers, Con Air, and the 1997 Star Wars Trilogy re-releases.

I was working at Regency Exchange when this place opened. It killed our business.

I uploaded an grand opening ad from April 17th, 1992. (maybe as a Regal)

The treatment on the front of the theatre looks like Super Saver / Silver ran the theatre at some point. Was this a Regal the entire time?

I believe it opened in 1991 because my Dad took my 12 year old sister to see Father of The Bride on a Father-Daughter date, and she said he laughed louder than anyone.

Once, in 1999, I went to see 10 Things I hate About You. I kept on giving the box office attendant a $ 10 bill he gave back. When I looked at it, I found out my Grandma (as a joke) had put a fake $ 10 bill in with my money to be funny. My Aunt came and paid for my ticket and I paid her back. She got on my Grandma- her Mom- for that. Good times.

It really wasn’t a bad theatre.I am just old school and hate things over 3 or 4 screens,but that is a “Me” problem.Thanks for the pictures.It is still sitting there like Regency,Except GCC left EVERYTHING in the 8-Plex.

Cool,
Sorry its taken so long to post the Columbia photos. It seems I’ve having to go through more boxes than I thought. Good news is while going through boxes I found a old cloth Jaws banner I’ve had for years. Will post asap.

Yes, National Hills had a full curtain that actully worked until it finally broke and no one fixed it.National Hills could show 70mm on that large screen. One thing I noticed about your theatre it was just TOO Dang easy to slip into without paying,The Ticket chopper,I guess was about in the only place you guys could place it.But the Theatre Manager in me always noticed that stuff,The two large cinemas were pretty decent,but those two small houses were a joke.I was there when they closed and shipped everything back to KNOXVILLE.I looked it by a back exit door they striped it.Was hoping to find some One sheets in the dumpster out back,but nothing but some trade magazines,Don’t even think they were BOXOFFICE which was a great theatre Magazine,REGAL must and still is a cheap outfit,How they run that 20 plex across the interstate is beyond me.They must have three managers.One thing when I worked as a Assistant at Regency and Columbia Square and National Hills I never cleaned floors.Boy, the business sure did change, But GCC and Plitt were much better Theatre chains to work for.MY cousin was a manager for REGAL and all I heard were Horror Stories,Cutting Staff,Showtimes,Concessions,etc.
