Opening on June 29, 1979, the Rowan Plaza Theatres was Salisbury’s first twin-cinema and the first movie theatre in Rowan County since the opening of the Terrace Theatre in 1969. Located on Statesville Boulevard at the intersection of Jake Alexander Boulevard at the Rowan Plaza Shopping Center in the northern part of the city. Owned and operated under Consolidated Theatres, the premiere attractions for the Rowan Plaza Twin were on Screen 1: Sylvester Stallone and Carl Weathers in “Rocky II” & Screen 2 Roger Moore as James Bond-007 in “Moonraker”.
By the mid-1980’s it was a 3-screen operation. The Rowan Plaza Cinemas showcased some of Hollywood’s best toward the mid-1990’s when it had strong competition from a new multiplex that was built at nearby Salisbury Mall. That put this theatre under stress when it switch formats to showing second-run films at discount prices until it’s closing in 2000.
