Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened on November 21, 1990 as the Biltmore Square Cinema 6 under United Artists Theatres, with a seating capacity of 1,500. Regal Cinemas took over this theatre in 2004 after its acquisition of UA. Regal Cinemas operated the Biltmore Square until June 29, 2007 when Cinebarre Corporation took over.

It became the newest concept in movie entertainment and began screening first-run movies in 5-screens and was equipped with a full service restaurant and bar. By the Fall of 2010, the Biltmore Square began screening second-run movies at bargain prices. It was closed July 20, 2014.

I have found the ads for the Biltmore Square Cinemas grand opening and this information will be reinstated and reposted for Cinema Treasures. As far as the information on this theatre is concerned,this theatre originally opened under United Artists Theatres and was later bought out by Regal Cinemas and finally was acquired by Cinebarre Corporation. I have the ads.

The first in Cinebarre chain they let this theater loose business by not keeping up with the time. They never installed 3-D projection even before the big digital boom which caused them to loose business and covnert to a discount house. Still in operation showing 35mm prints I don’t know how long they will be able to last without going digital.They were given a new lease with the new owners of the mall which are totally gutting it and making it an outlet mall. I hope they will either go digital or get purchased by another chain. The food is great but pricy. They do need to learn how to treat their employees. Wait staff is demoted to tickettaking or busing if they dont' pull in a certain quota of food sales which is rediculous becuase you can’t force people to but food or drinks.

The theater is closing. There last day of business will be July 20. There reasoning is because of the mall renovations which is a crock. That mall has been dead for 20 years. They choose not to put any money in this theater for years and went to a discount house in Oct 2010. Very sad as there have been many upset people about this on their Facebook page. They said they are in early negotiations with the mall developer( a new outlet mall)to possibly open a new theater. All I can say to the ownership of this theater is Bah Hum Bug.

It appears that demolition of this theater has started. The box office is intact, but all the outer and inner doors are gone and it looks like they are also removing the seats. Very sad this theater could have come back big time when the mall takes off if a new chain like AMC invested money in it and converted it to digital and one of their cinema and dines.

Status update the theater is being gutted for a restaurant/ retail space at the new Asheville Outlet Mall. Very sad no chain came in to rescue this theater.
