The theatre opened on May 10, 1996, with the benefit the night before.

The Benefit Films (in which tickets were ninety cents):
Toy Story, Braveheart, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Mr. Holland’s Opus and a sneak preview of Twister

The Opening Films:
Twister (on four screens), Antonia’s Line, Barb Wire, Fear, Mrs. Winterbourne, The Substitute, The Truth About Cats and Dogs, The Birdcage, Celtic Pride, Homeward Bound II and Oliver and Company

The theatre made a killing in the Springfield area and would cause the closures of the Tower (which was on its last legs), Century 21, Fremont, North Town, Battlefield Mall 6 and Town and Country in a span of five years (1997-2002).

The theatre now has Dolby Digital in all screens. I feel they downgraded some screens, as before, some of them once had DTS.

Hate to sound like a snob, but this place has nothing on the average multiplex in Kansas City. It was hastily remodeled to add stadium seating to all of the auditoriums about 5 years ago, and I have had a few experiences there which made me question the technical expertise of the crew. The Springfield 8 has a superior presentation. Someone like AMC needs to build a 20-plex in Springfield and show them how it’s done. Competition raises the bar for everyone…

Well, Wallace Theatres from Oregon (they have many theatres in Missouri) has been planning a 14-plex in downtown Springfield for a while now. It hasn’t happened yet. And you’re right, lots of theatres are better than Campbell 16 (Branson Meadows, Great Mall 16 in Olathe, Kansas, St. Charles 18).

As I’ve posted elsewhere, the long delay in getting the downtown complex started has me worried. I hope Wallace/Hollywood doesn’t just build a cheap complex because it’s Springfield and no one will notice (or care). It should really be the showcase for Southwest Missouri, if done right. Hell, it ought to have digital projection even.

For me, the Campbell 16 will always be a second-rate theater. While the stadium seating is nice to have, it’s very crowded. The smallest theaters are even more cramped and I’ve had numerous experiences where the projections either melted, scratched, broke, played without sound and other problems.

I avoid this theater whenever I can, preferring to catch a flick at the less crowded, more spacious and better technicals of the Springfield 8.

The theatre will have digital projection starting September 5th. The first digital engagement will be Bangkok Dangerous with Nicolas Cage.

I always liked going to this theater when I was in college. It has a very large lobby, and always attracts a very large crowd. Theaters aren’t terribly big, but all of them are stadium seating. I spent many weekends at this theater going to movies.

A conversion of all auditoriums to digital projection is supposed to be in the works and completed by September. Right now, four auditoriums (auditoriums 3, 8, 9 and 12) have digital projections but only three of them seem to used most of the time.
