Lynnhaven Mall used to have movie theaters on the second level by the food court and also on the first floor. The AMC Lynnhaven 8 opened around 1984 and closed by the late-1990’s. Two of the screens were equipped with 70mm and 6-track sound. In 1986, this was the bast theatre in Tidewater to see “Aliens”.

The building still stands and is being used as an indoor go-kart attraction.

The Lynnhaven 8 was an AMC theater that opened during the summer of 1986 outside of Lynnhaven Mall. I think it stuck around until 2003 when AMC opened their 24-screen complex there, but I could be wrong. Inside Lynnhaven Mall, a 5-screen complex owned by UA opened on the 2nd floor near the food court during the summer of 1981. A 6-screen complex opened on the 1st floor during the winter of 1982-1983. That was a UA theater as well. During the mid-1990s, the 1st floor complex started showing more art-house fare. I remember seeing Bunuel’s “Belle de Jour” there in 1995. During the late 1990s, the 1st floor cinema closed and the 2nd floor cinema hung in for a few years, but it was owned by AMC at that point.

Some internet research shows that this building is now being used by American Indoor Karting as a go cart track.

PLEASE CHANGE ADDRESS TO:

2736 NORTH MALL DRIVE

701 Lynnhaven Parkway is the address of the Mall and the Lynnhaven 8 was NOT in the Mall, but was in it’s own building.
