The Myrtle Cinemas originally opened as a twin cinema in the early-1970’s by Stewart and Everett Theatres.

By the late-1970’s, it became a multiplex cinema. By the early-1980’s the Myrtle added 6 additional screens until the late-1980’s when it became a megaplex with 10 screens.

Stewart and Everett operated the Myrtle Cinemas until it was acquired by Carmike in 1986, until its closing in 1999.

Used to attend this theatre in the early 90’s when I went to visit my grandmother in Myrtle Beach. Very cool, unique design. You walk in on the right side and there is a ticket window leading to 7 screens and a concession stand. You walk in on the left side and there was a ticket window with another concession stand and 3 more screens. Some of the films seen here included ‘Father of the Bride’ ‘Dick Tracy’ ‘Home Alone 2’ ‘Career Opportunities’ ‘Scream’ ‘Sphere’ and ‘Eraser’.. among many others.. wish they would’ve kept this one going, Myrtle Beach no longer has a discount movie theatre. During the summer months, this theatre was always slammed.
