Stewart & Everett opened The Independence Mall Cinema 1-2-3 on or about April 4, 1980. Phil Pierce was the City Manager in Wilmington for “S & E” at the time. This information comes from Stewart & Everett’s “Showmanship” newsletter dated April 4, 1980 (page 5).

This theater closed and was demolished in 2000 to make way for the Dillard’s wing in the mall. I miss this theater. I saw so many movies there as a kid.

i have linked a newspaper article above dated December 12, 1978 that describes the plans for the construction of this triplex. ENJOY!

Carmike has never impressed me from the theatres I have seen up close.But,I know it is a different time we live in.
