University Cinemas was located across HWY 29/N. Tryon from UNCC and was operated by Carmike Cinemas. At first a thriving theater that premiered many top art films and high grossing blockbusters. In fact, when “Top Gun” opened, the studio split the costs of attaching half of a real jet and crumbling bricks to the outside of the building to give the effect of a jet flying through the theatre.
Unfortunately, the combination of poor management, rough-housing employees and over all lack of care for the theater would close it down in 1998. It sat empty for about a year before the property owner literally cut the lobby and theaters in half to form small shops and more parking.
The only evidence of this theater can be found in the boot operator’s door that leads too…?
