Showcase Cinema Erlanger

Located just west of I71 on Meadow Lane this opened as a 5-screen theatre December 20, 1974. It became an 8-screen multiplex opened in 1976. A single story building with a mostly glass front with white stucco style trim. Large lobby with the auditoriums directly behind the lobby. Well maintained for a multiplex built in 1974.

National Amusements closed the cinema in late-2008. It was demolished in October 2015.

A nice place, devoid of all the usual glitzy flashing plastic stuff that typifies most cinemas built today. Cleanliness is on par with most of the cinemas in the Tri State area but the building does show signs of needed remodeling. Staff was Friendly.

Another of the once mighty Redstone empire bites the dust.

A 1974 Issue of Boxoffice mentions that Mid-States was going to build a 6-plex in Erlanger at the intersection of Donaldson Hwy & Hartman Rd. Does anybody know if this was built or if perhaps the Showcase got to it first?

I saw many movies here – a nice enough place with good sized screens but they began to let it go after a bit…. I was there to see “The Sixth Sense” in 1999 and a panel fell from the ceiling into a batch of empty seats.

They closed this in April 2008 in anticipation of the DeLux Cinema that was being built just down the road at the Florence Mall.

There is no theaters on Donaldson, so they were never built.

This is another cinema I filled in as projectionists. My brother in law managed this unit for a while.
