AMC’s Mansell Crossing 14 was featured on the cover of the September, 1994, issue of Boxoffice. In addition, an article about the house starts on this page of the same issue. The multiplex was designed by the architectural firm Gould Evans Associates.

Dooneyman,a theif from an Atlanta Multiplex did happen.I remember reading it in the Atlanta paper.Don’t know which one.They did get caught i am pretty sure. Hold your bank deposits on some of these 20 plexes and you would have quite a bit of bread. We would deposit tens of thousands of Dollars in the years i worked for GCC at a triple over the weekends including the Midnight shows,Concession,game machines and feature films.Surprizes it hasn’t happen more often.Don’t know what the checks and balances are at these monster multiplexes to secure funds.Guess it is still up to being honest.

Nice looking theatre. Can’t find it anywhere on the Google satellite shot.

If you mean the address listed above for the Mansell Crossing 14, it looks right to me. I have never been in this theatre, just driven by it a couple of times. Don’t see any reason why it should not be right. It is not the correct address for the theatre fromerly known as the Tower Place 6. That address is 3340 Peachtree Road, as it is listed on the CT page for AMC Buckhead Backlot, which is what the theatre was called when the page was started. I believe you have commented on that page.

Chuck started a page on a Tower Place 6, based on the incorrect info you cited from the AMC website. Its link is:

/theaters/32130/

I have posted a more detailed and hopefully less complicated explanation of this whole issue there.

Is this not the correct address? I got the address from AMC’s website.

The information on the AMC website about a Tower Place 6 at this location is incorrect. The AMC Tower Place 6 is in Atlanta and is listed on this site as the AMC Buckhead Backlot Cinema and Cafe:

/theaters/13665/

It is now called the AMC Fork and Spoon.

Before the construction of the AMC Mansell Crossing 14, and the whole North Point Mall development, this area was mostly farmland.

The above website also says a theater called the Tower Place 6 used to sit on the exact same address and land that this theater now sits on. The Tower Place theater was apparently demolished in the early 90’s to make way for the AMC theater.

I moved to the area in July 1992, but I don’t remember the Tower Place theater. Was it already torn down by then? That website lists it as closing in 1990, but who knows how accurate that date is. Does anyone remember the Tower Place 6? Did anyone ever go there or work there?

Over at movie-theatre.org, they say this place opened June 24, 1994. I haven’t found any newspaper articles to confirm it yet, but that may be correct. My earliest memory of going to this theater includes seeing a “Pulp Fiction” poster out front (Pulp Fiction was released in October, 1994).

It was also during this time that Eddie (I think) told me that one of the senior managers at the place stole like $50,000 from the theater and skipped town (he went to Vegas maybe?). I feel like one of my other friends who worked there corroborated the story.

Did anyone work there during this time? Is this story true?

I remember during my high school years (the late 90’s/early 2000’s), a few of my friends worked here. Around 2002 or 2003, my friend Eddie was working there over the weekend and told me that he was cleaning out the men’s bathrooms and found a dead guy in one of the stalls. Apparently, he had a heart attack while taking a dump. I never really got the full story, but someone had to clean that up and it wasn’t Eddie.

That was one of the most horrifying and hilarious stories I heard while in high school.
