AMC Crestwood Plaza 10

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Crestwood Plaza 10 originally opened with five screens. Five more were added when the mall went through a remodel. The back side of the Dillards Department Store (Stix, Baer & Fuller) was closed off and the new theaters were added there.

The entrance to the theaters are very convenient as they are located in the back of the mall and there is an entrance right there. You walk up the stairway to the lobby which is done in earth tones and iridescent lighting but very impressive. The new auditoriums have stadium seating but the older ones have staggered rows so the site lines are still great. All of the auditoriums have stereo sound. This is a very comfortable theatre all around. A big plus for AMC.

Closed on May 17, 2012.

Kavita Kumar of the Post-Dispatch said in her column today that the redevelopment plans for Crestwood Plaza could include a new movie theater with leather seats and high-end dining, along with a bowling alley, as new tenants as part of the redevelopment. A closing date for the current 10-screen theater was not mentioned, but JAlex’s info would fit right in with this idea.

Here’s the link to the story:

Does anyone know how to make a link selectable on this site? If you do, I’ll try to repost.

Chuck, could you post the process you went through to make that link selectable? I’m sorry if I just missed it somewhere, but I can seem to find the right process on here. Thanks!

In fact, General Cinema DID own a theater at Crestwood Plaza long before it was an AMC. Maybe AMC built a new building in the place where the GC Theater was.

I saw The Beatles “Help” and “What’s New Pussycat” in 1965 there. I’m old lol

Kyle, you are correct. GCC was never involved in the Crestwood area. The Crestwood Plaza theaters (both the one in the food court area and the current one on the upper level by the former Dillard’s) have always been AMC. The Crestwood Theater up the street on Watson was a Mid-America house.

Thanks, Norm…while we’re at it, the 66 Park-In was run by Wehrenberg, except for its first year of operation (1948), but it was still never run by General Cinema.

@oceantracks: I believe you might be thinking of the South County Cinema that was in South County Center. That theater WAS run by General Cinema from its opening until it was closed and torn down. Here’s that theater’s page on this site: South County Cinema

…and then there was the Sunset Hills I & II which were operated by General Cinema. A bit further west on Watson Road (Highway 66).

@kyle Muldrow

No, Kyle I am aware of the other two theaters you mention. But there was a theater kind of overlooking Crestwood Plaza in 1965, and that’s where I saw The Beatles film. It might not have been a GC though. Only way to figure thisk out would be if there was microfilm at the library with movie listings for Summer 65 I suppose…. Could it have been an AMC?
