The main photo of this theater should be changed, and really a separate entry created for it. That is the General Cinema twin that was on the east side of the mall (later-run by Wehrenberg and replaced by the food court). Jamestown 14 was built new on the west side of the mall.

Post-Dispatch reported last week that Jamestown Mall is now officially closed. That’s the whole mall, not just the theater. So much of North St.Louis County is just disappearing or a far cry from how it used to be.

Judging by the website, the theater’s status needs to be changed to closed. The site only lists three theaters, and Jamestown is not one of them.

I went to the old Jamestown Twin once to see Flatliners back in 1990. The picture of the old twin in the overview kinda makes the theater look like an outlot, but I know it wasn’t. I believe you had to go into the mall to get to the theater, which is also the case with the current Jamestown 14.

Of course, if I got that wrong, feel free to correct…

J 14 didn'y expand at the old twin location. The old twin location was on the other side of the mall where the foodcourt is now next door to the old Ground Round Restaurant

I’ve been to this theatre once. I saw First Sunday there with a very small crowd (probably because the film had been running there for a while). It was in a large auditorium with a large screen (I think it was one of the newer auditoriums) and the theatre was well-kept.

The mall was also rather busy that day. There were a lot of smaller businesses around but it was hardly dead.

Another problem with the site: Their “Contact Us” link lets you fill out a message, but the Submit button doesn’t seem to work. This must still be a work in progress.

Needy: I did look at Wehrenberg’s site. That’s how I knew something was up.

JAlex: Thanks for posting the link. Funny thing…the site says the theater has the lowest ticket prices in town, but I couldn’t find any prices on the site! I wonder if the mall owners have any experience running a movie theater. We’ll see how this works out.

The newspaper ad now sports this site:

The mall owners took over the operation of this theater

Go to Wehrenberg’s site now, it’s not on there anymore

Does anyone have a link to something saying this took place? Not doubting anything…it’s just that I started a thread on this on cinematour.com when I saw Jamestown wasn’t listed on Wehrehnberg’s website. I knew the mall had been really struggling for years. Don’t really see how the mall running the theater is going to make things better.

I went to this theater when it opened. It was pretty stable with a steady flow of customers. I never thought this mall was “doing well” but apparently it was doing well enough to open a large set of screens in the theater.

I can’t say that this mall…and probably this theater…is doing well these days, especially since Wehrenberg gave it up.

The theatre is now owned by the mall, Jamestown Mall Realty Management LLC. They seem to have been stripped of everything Wehrenberg (except a few stray popcorn bags).

Needy on July 6, 2009 at 12:45 pm

In the paper today, it says “under new ownership” and it is not listed under the Wehrenberg logo. Upon logging into the Wehrenberg website, it also has no mention of Jamestown. Who owns this theater now? It looks like it is still showing new releases as of now.

The mall seems to be dying…one cannot help but wonder about the theatre.

When the facility opened in July 1974 it was “merely” a twin. General Cinema was the original operator and advertised it as the Jamestown Mall Cinema I & II.

This theater was only a twin before it became the Jamestown 14.
