Mid Rivers 14 Cine'

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Mid Rivers Mall 6 opened with the mall opening and was operated by GCC. When GCC left the St. Louis market, Wehrenberg took over the theatre. When the mall was remodeled and the food court moved in 1996 the theatre was renovated and expanded to 14 auditoriums and became the Mid Rivers 14 Cine'.

Wehrenberg did a great job on the decor and the comfort of the patrons. Most auditoriums are stadium seating and stereo sound in all auditoriums. St. Charles county being the fastest growing county in Missouri easily support both the Mid Rivers 14 and the St. Charles 18.

I loathe going to this theater, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. Yikes! Nothing but young kids being disrespectful and foul-mouthed. It has definitely gone down hill in the last 10 years.

@littlelamzie: Actually, it’s not much different from when I went there on Friday nights in 1990!! That was when the theater only had 6 screens and the kids were loud and disrespectful then…maybe not foul-mouthed, but they still ruined the movie experience because they just wouldn’t shut up!! I’ve found the St. Charles 18 to be far better…

This has been my theater of choice since the early 90s. Never went to it when GCG ran it.

Having to use a wheelchair since the late 90s, I remember the old entrance, before they expanded it. They had a wheelchair lift to get down to the auditoriums. Sometimes, you had to wait for someone to operate it after the showings.

The best time to go here is before noon, when the shows are cheap. ($6 currently.)

Is the original GCC 6-plex part of the new 14-plex or is the 14-plex an entirely new build?

Some of the original 6 screens were incorporated into the new build. There was additional work done, aside from making the screens all stadium seating. The screen entrances used to be lower than the rest of the mall, as referenced in my earlier comment. They may have added, or moved, a screen of two. I haven’t had many movies on that side of the Cineplex, and have not gone there as frequently since the Galaxy 14 in Chesterfield set their lower prices.

Sorry, but there is no part of the original GCC 6-plex that was incorporated into the new Wehrenberg-designed 14. The two theatres are in different sections of the mall.

No, it’s still part of the original 6-plex. They may have moved the entrance, but the positions are still pretty much the same. Otherwise, it would have taken longer than it did to transition from 6 to 14. It was closed less than a year. Not to mention, a waste of still useable theater space.

I can assure you that no part of the 14-plex is the same as the old 6. I worked for Wehrenberg when the new construction happened. We didn’t want the old building due to numerous problems with that space. Since the new build was separate, the old theatre was able to operate until the landlord and tenant wanted it to close.

Just out of curiosity, DAL, what kind of problems where they? Were they structure-related, location-related, or customer-related?

Aside from the split-level configuration of the lobby, which depended upon the lift elevator to give access for our disabled guests, the space had an ongoing problem with odor and moisture. Both GCC and Wehrenberg probably spent a lot of time and money trying to correct those issues.
