Clarkson 6 Cine'

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Clarkson 6 Cine' opened May 18, 1984 seating 1,756 and was one of two multiplexes that the Wehrenberg Chain opened that year. The Clarkson 6 Cine', located in the affluent area of Chesterfield was in direct competition with the GCC Chesterfield Mall Cinema and Arthur’s Ellisville Cinema. Rather striking front to the theatre and a large lobby. Well decorated auditoriums with the latest in sound. The Clarkson 6 Cine' outlived both the Chesterfield Mall and the Ellisville. The theatre was closed in December of 2004 and has since been razed.

The Clarkson 6 Cine' has been leveled and in it’s location is now a pet store. I used to love going to that theater. It was a family tradition to fight the crowds and see a movie the day after Thanksgiving. Now we have the Galaxy 14 and they have just now built an AMC theater inside Chesterfield Mall.

Multiplex-happy installation that had one redeeming auditorium, the main one! That was very good, with 70mm and 6-track Dolby Stereo capabilities. Very fond memories of seeing “Amadeus” epecially in 1984. Also, “2010,” “Top Gun” and “The Hunt for Red October.” The remaining auditoriums were non-descript at best.

I saw Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade in 70mm TXH at the Clarkson. It was the only time I went there. The main auditorium was pretty cool!!

I worked at Clarkson 6 in 1984, the first summer it was open. It was a brand new theater with all new employees. It was the most enjoyable job I’ve ever had. One of those summers you wish would never end. Especially remember Peggy, Susan, and Amy. Sorry to hear it was torn down. State of the art at the time.

I just stumbled on this upon learning this cinema had been torn down. Tom Fischbach, I’m the Amy you refer to! :) I loved working at the cinema, too. Were you there when Bruce Springsteen came to Terminator late one night with the E-Street band? The cinema manager, I forget his name, LOVED Springsteen and he was so psyched. We all stayed late to get autographs. Fun memories.

Amy, I missed the Bruce sighting, but heard all about it. My brush with fame was when Mickey Rooney saw a movie there. I guess you win! I do remember when Amadeus was there and you changed your name tag to Amydeus. Cute.
