3 Screens with 1,100 seats. Closed in 2000 as a second-run discount theatre under Carmike, and was demolished in 2001 to make way for the Dillard’s wing expansion of the Independence Mall.

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

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

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.

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).
