Showcase Cincinnati Mills 10

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened by Showcase, it was taken over by Rave Motion Picture Theatres in December 2009. As of 2013 or earlier, this theatre was closed, likely because the mall itself had difficulties.

Cincinnati Mills is about 3 miles west of Showcase Springdale. I believe it is of 1990’s vintage.

Mike Coate is right on this one…the prestige theatre was the Showcase Springdale. The original Springdale was a very fine theatre, running many 70mm features. It was torn down in the last few years to be replaced by an 18-plex Showcase “Cinema de lux”.

<<< I am not sure he is wrong; on another page he indicates that the mall is off I-275, and this one is. The mall opened as The Forest Fair Mall in 1988 and the theater opened as the Forest Mall Cinemas. >>>

CWalczak… Your comment makes no sense! What does his comment about the location of the mall in proximity to the interstate have to do with anything??? He’s describing the Showcase Cinemas in Springdale, a stand-alone theater located, as MarkL explained, a few miles from where the theater described on this page is located. That he commented about 1974 showtimes on a page for a theater that opened in 1988 ought to have been the first clue that he was posting on the wrong page.

I love Rogers' enthusiasm, but I think many will agree his posts can be pretty scatterbrained if you’ve spent any time reading his Augusta theater ramblings.

Chuck… It’s Springdale, not Springfield.

Apparently, some of you do not share my concern about the importance of credibility with websites that rely on user-submitted content. But, then, what do you know about credibility, Chuck? An alarming number of your posts are riddled with factual errors and misspellings…and you don’t seem to care…and, unfortunately, neither do the site’s owners. Whenever someone points out an error to you, you tend to either not respond or you come up with some lame explanation for why you think you’re being mistreated and end up ignoring the real issue of the accuracy of the information.

It is inevitable that some folks think I’m a jerk for offering corrections. Let’s face it…some people just cannot handle being corrected, regardless of how any corrections are conveyed. Others, though, don’t seem to have a problem with me because they understand that I care about accuracy and they appreciate that I actively participate in the exchange of information even when it entails engaging in an argument or debate.

I was just going on infomation from CWalczak was giving me i wanted to put it in the right spot. As far as my Augusta Theatres and Michael is speaking about 70mm,As I told him I was going by what two Projectionist in the old Local 518 told me for my history of Augusta Theatres. Granted, i certainly don’t know it all; most of my infomation comes from discussions with projectionists filed away in my mind back in the 70’s since only one is still alive that played 70mm. I don’t have files and files of clippings from BOxoffice. have a nice day,Micheal.

Michael: Mike Rogers posted his original inquiry about a Showcase Cinema in Cincinnati on the Cincinnati Albee Theater page some days ago. It is hardly the first time that someone has posted an inquiry about a particular theater on another theater’s entry page if they are in the same area and the one being inquired about does not appear to have a page of its own.

This is is essentially what Mike posted on the Albee page: (I have combined two comments and done a bit of editing:

“…Do you know anything about SHOWCASE CINEMAS in Cincinnati? I know it was a modern theatre, but I can’t find this fourplex anywhere on CT…All I know it was located near the Tri-County Shopping Center near I-275. So this fourplex could be [now] be10 screens [i] just don’t know. It was a major theatre complex when it opened in the 70's…. It was called in 1974 SHOWCASE CINEMAS 1.2.3.4.”

I hardly find it “nonsensical” that I should question whether this Cincinnati Mills theater might be the theater Mike had in mind since a) it is in Cincinnati, and b) it is off of I-275 (which I knew from experince). As it turned out, he was thinking of the theater in Springdale, not actually in Cincinnati proper. I was simply trying to raise a point in the interest of accuracy.

Michael, no one on CT admires your probing research and detailed articles more than I, and I too wish that the some site rules were more rigorously observed. However, I think your comments are occasionally unnecessarily abrasive and hurtful.

CWlaczak,thanks for your kind words about my seach for Showcase 4.I should be more careful because the first thing I learned real quick that there folks on here that know everything.I had a guy correct me on the opening year of a Twin theatre that I was House Manager on and I think this guy lived in L.A..

CWalczak…I never said your comment was “nonsensical,” only that it didn’t make sense (to me). Meaning: I was surprised you were not able to “connect the dots” or “put two and two together” in regard to recognizing the theater Rogers was recalling could not possibly be the one you thought it was.

Now having read the Albee page I can see why you thought what you did. It seems you guys came to an unknowingly faulty conclusion based on some erroneous and misleading details mentioned in that discussion. It’s too bad I hadn’t seen the Albee page sooner and chimed in because then the discussion on this page might not have spun out of control.

I do think many of you are too sensitive about being corrected. It’s as if everyone is expected to unconditionally accept and love all comments which defeats the purpose of an information resource.

I do not agree that I’m abrasive or hurtful (at least not in intent), but I will admit that I can be pretty impatient with some people on these message boards. I’ll work toward improving my interaction with others. (Contact me via email if you wish to discuss further.)

By the way, the Showcase Cinemas that MikeRogers was thinking of now has a page here on Cinema Treasures.
