The Farragut Towne Square Ten opened July 30, 1993. The multiplex lacked all the amenities associated with twenty-first century cinemas (e.g. stadium style seating, digital sound, etc.) and quickly lost favor. Operated by Regal Cinemas, an attempt was made to revitalize the venue by presenting a mix of foreign and classic film fare but the response was not enough to sustain its existence. It was closed July 15, 2005, and has been demolished.

I was GM at this location in 1999 (When Star Wars Phantom Menace opened). It was a standard Regal location. I believe it is the only location that a wet ceiling tile fell on Mike Campbell’s head while he was watching a film there.

Theater is now raised and an Ingles Grocery Store is on the former site.

Why couldn’t they install stadium seating instead of another tax right off.

The theater was actually closed on July 15, 2005, three weeks after the Pinnacle 18 opened.

Ha ha, Dennis commented. I was there when you were manager. I miss those days. Writing bad things on the signs out front that ya’ll never knew about, driving cars through burning cardboard standups in the back parking lot, watching that old lady drink while tearing tickets. Fun times were had in that place.
