Since the Marcus takeover, they seem to be showing more Bollywood films here. According to the listings for this coming Friday, there will be five movies in either Telugu or Tamil. I don’t know if St Charles County has that big an Indian population, and even so, a mall multiplex doesn’t seem like the obvious place for them. The average teenage mall moviegoer would want more mainstream movies,

Are they wanting to put some reserved seating in? I saw Interstellar there last week, and in that particular auditorium (Screen 9), there were two seats surrounded by velvet ropes, which eliminated one of the two spaces for wheelchair seating.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.)

@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…

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.

Since the Mid Rivers 6 opened in December of 1988, would that make it the last General Cinema theater that opened in St. Louis?

I’ll take ya back further…I remember when I-70 (the highway, not the drive in) wasn’t there.
I know the family who owned the property the mall sits on.
Funny-I’ve never been in that theater, yet I live within walking distance.

If GCC opened the 6 screener in Dec 1988, this means it was in GCC’s hands for less than a year, since Wehrenberg bought out the remaining GCCs in 1989. Do I have that right?

This will take you back…I remember playing soccer on a field that was near the site for Mid Rivers Mall. This was in the late 70-early 80s and, at that time, there was no Mid Rivers Mall. It was just a big empty field. Still can’t believe it used to be that way not so long ago.

The new Mid Rivers 14 opened December 10, 1999.
