Opened by AMC in March 1976, it was closed by that chain in 2000. It is now a fitness center.

Was about the closest theaters to my folks place and I never took in a flick.

More info and photos are always welcome.

Countryside 6 played “Star Wars” for 39 weeks during 1977-78, the second-longest run of that film in the Tampa Bay region and third-longest in all of Florida. I would imagine it also is the longest run of any film ever to play in Clearwater.

Unless “JAWS” topped it.

Wish my picture weren’t so damn blurry. Sometimes, especially with gyms, I don’t want to go up and start snapping pictures lest somebody come out and get paranoid and start yelling at me.
