The aging Cinema 356 was demolished when a new 10-screen megaplex opened in 2002.

The project was spearheaded by the former owner of the four-screen Cinema 356, who built a new megaplex with stadium seating along with digital sound, large screens and the latest projection technology.

Initial plans had called for an upgrade for the Cinema 356, but developers realized it would be cheaper to build an entirely new building and raze the old theater.

Dear sir,
I am a student of Architecture from India and I am doing thesis project on Multiplex theatre construction. For the same I was wondering if you could help me with some technical information regarding your complex and esteemed organization. The data that may include drawings, services details and any other information that you may be able to part with will be highly useful to me.

I am a student and I intend to use this information for strictly academic purpose and no other. and I assure you that there will be no misuse of the information whatsoever.

If you will reply this mail we can communicate and I shall provide all the data you may feel is necessary to establish me as a bonafide student.

Thanking you

Too bad the old building could not be saved, Ten Screens were added in a new theatre in a new location,wouldn’t surprize me if it had already closed.

The Cinema 356 actually opened on July 3, 1974. The first film to play there was “The Midnight Man”, a Universal mystery with Burt Lancaster and Susan Clark. I obtained this information from microfilms of The Butler Eagle at the Butler Area Public Library.
