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.
Rest in peace Campbell 16!!!
I spent many nights watching movies at this theater when I lived in Springfield going to Missouri State circa 2000-2005.
