Wehrenberg took over GCC theatres in Missouri in October 1989.

When did the change in ownership from GCC to Wehrenberg take place?

I remember the theater very well. Growing up in Springfield, it was one of the great joys to be able to come to the mall on Sunday, not contend with traffic and see a movie.

Some things I remember: In 1995, my grandfather took me to see a movie there, I can’t remember which one now, but I recall seeing the large house stand-up for the film Clue. I commented that I wanted to see it and was told I was too young. Clue remains one of my favorite guilty pleasures ever.

I also remember seeing Best Picture 1989, Driving Miss Daisy, which was the film that launched my interest in the Academy Awards (which I continue to this day). And towards the end of its run, it was one of the few theaters in town that consistently got smaller, independent movies while the larger cineplexes were inundated with more populist fare.

The theatre opened on December 17th, 1982 as a General Cinema with 48 Hrs., The Verdict, Trail Of The Pink Panther, Honkytonk Man, Six Weeks and An Officer and A Gentleman.

The theatre closed on January 7th, 2001 as a Wehrenberg theatre with Cast Away, Miss Congeniality, Dracula 2000, Unbreakable, Vertical Limit and How The Grinch Stole Christmas. It closed due to Wehrenberg’s bankruptcy.

I remember being here at least twice, seeing Stepmom and Pokemon: The First Movie.

It was in the food court, overlooking the tables where people ate.

Where was this theatre in realtion to the mall, was it on the parking lot or accross the street? The Battlefield Mall had the Century 21 (single screen) Mann Theatre which became Dickinson, I was under the impression that Dickinson may have added screens inside the mall. Can someone straighten me out!?!?!
