Located in the Northern section of Chapel Hill, the Timberlyne Cinemas are located opposite the Timberlyne Shopping Center on 120 Banks Drive off Weaver Dairy Road near Martin Luther King Boulevard(formerly Airport Road). Opening to the public on July 9, 1993, the theatre was one of two movie houses in Chapel Hill that were owned and operated under Charlotte based Eastern Federal Corporation (the other was the Village Plaza Theatres off Elliott Road). All six auditoriums were equipped with the latest sound technology with full Dolby Digital Sound, advance ticket sales and acres of free parking.

Eastern Federal operated this theatre until 2005 until Regal Cinemas took over as an acquisition of Eastern Federal Theatres. After the Village Plaza closed in 2003, the Regal Timberlyne 6 remains the only multiplex in Chapel Hill, and does astounding business under Regal Theatres.

What a horrible way to open a new theatre….. Pauly Shore in “THE SON-IN-LAW”

A lot of people avoided this turkey and flock over to the larger auditorium where JURASSIC PARK was packing them in and keeping the lines going around the block.

The days of this theater may be numbered. Newsobserver.com announced on November 19, 2013 that a new 13-screen multiplex will be built at University Mall, on the site of the soon to close Dillard’s Department Store. The new multiplex may have less impact on the Lumina Theatre, as that fiveplex is further away from University Mall than the Timberlyne 6.

The new multiplex may have a greater impact on the Chelsea Theatre which is across the street over at Timberlyne Shopping Center off Weaver Dairy Road. Not to mention in the article(11-19-13 Raleigh News and Observer) that this multiplex will play its share of independent and foreign films that usually get first-billing at the Chelsea.

But since you were saying that this theater’s days are numbered,the Timberlyne 6 opened in 1993 and it is over 20 years old.
