The web site of architects Paradigm Design lists the Formum 8 as one of the projects the firm designed for Goodrich Theatres. As the house was originally built for Dickinson Theatres I would presume that Paradigm only did a remodeling for Goodrich, although some older multiplexes Goodrich has acquired from other chains have been largely or entirely rebuilt.

This is similar in deisgn to the Northrock 6 in Wichita, KS, which closed many years ago. From the pictures this theatre looks smaller.

Yes, this was built by Dickinson in the early to mid ‘90’s and is a smaller version of the Springfield 8, which I believe was built first, around 1993. To compare, house #1 at the Springfield 8 seated 455 and was 70mm equipped. It also opened with full curtains over every screen. The Forum 8 house #1 seats 350 and never had curtains and was less luxurious, but still very nice.

Is this theatre the same design as the Springfield 8? Was it built by Dickinson?
