The Eutaw Twin Theatres was the newest cinema in Fayetteville that was operated under Consolidated Theatres(which also owned and operated the Bordeaux 1 & 2 that opened three years earlier). Both auditoriums seated 600 each bringing the total of 1,200 seating capacity. The Eutaw Theatres also had plush back rocking chairs for easy enjoyment along with deluxe ultra-sonic sound equipped in both auditoriums and large luxurious lobby to eliminate long lines in outside weather.

The premiere attraction at the Eutaw Twin for it’s February 11, 1977 showings were on Screen 1 was the Burt Lancaster epic “Twilight’s Last Gleaming”. Screen 2 was the George Segal-Jane Fonda comedy “Fun With Dick and Jane”. A lot of great movies played here at the Eutaw Twin Theatres until it’s closing in 1991.

Carmike Cinemas acquired the Consolidated Theaters chain in 1989, so, technically, it would be Carmike that closed the theater in 1991.

Also, an interesting piece of information from Edward Jay Epstein’s book The Hollywood Economist is that in 1990, the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) required any auditorium (ie, seats per screen) to have handicap accessibility for every row if there were more than 299 seats in the auditorium, thus inadvertently encouraging many theaters to close (rather than incur renovation costs) any theaters with auditoriums of 300+ seats…

I remember this cinema well. During my six week tour at Fort Bragg in 1981 the Eutaw was my group’s primary movie destination for films such as RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, FOR YOUR EYES ONLY and DRAGON SLAYER.
