If anyone comes across any pictures from these theaters in (what I consider) their hey day in the early 90’s, please post them. I can remember how beautiful the center atrium was, when it was open into it’s full length, and there were banners hanging from the rafters for movie premieres that had taken place there. I used to see multiple movies there almost every week of the year. Sadly, even still living just a few miles away, that’s slowed to almost never with the theater now forcing you to pick specific seats, and pre-selling said seats. I used to just show up early, buy a ticket, and sit where I wanted. Now everything is sold out weeks in advance in the areas of the theaters that I like, and I can’t even get a ticket. But AMC Pleasure Island (as is used to be called) was my 2nd home for several decades.

If anyone has any pictures of this theater from it’s very early days, I’d be very curious to see them. Despite the vastness of the internet, I’ve yet to find more than 2 or 3 after a long time spent searching. In the early 90’s it was a real gem. One of the very very best in the whole country, but the whole complex surrounding it by Pleasure Island and Planet Hollywood was so open and new. The place is still great, but has gotten so developed and is always so crowded, that I really miss those early days.

The new screen setup for the AMC Downtown Disney 24, as far as the Fork & Screen side is concerned is as follow: Theatres #19 & 20 is on the right hand side when you walk in, with both on the hallway on the right side, and a wall on the left hand side seperating Theatres #1 to 18 (The ETX [Aud #1]/Stadium Seating Side, and Theatres #21-24 on the left hand side, with Theatres #21 & #23 on the left hand side of the hallway, and #22 & 24 on the right hand side of the hallway. The “AMC MacGuffins” bar is where the concession stand used to be.

Six screening rooms (on the Planet Hollywood) at this megaplex have been converted to AMC’s dine-and-view concept: View link.

Here’s some pics – View link – It looks like there are at least two bars – one on the first floor next to the “new” concession stand by Theaters 1 and 2 and one on the mezzine level for Theaters 1 & 2 (where they had a short lived cafe I believe for a few years). The Concession Stand of the Future looks like it has an impressive selection including flavored popcorn (the large is $9.75!) and includes the new Coke Freestyle machines.

The theater predates “Downtown Disney” – it’s original 10-screen configuration was an entertainment anchor of Pleasure Island, along with Planet Hollywood (both were off Pleasure Island proper, ie: allowing access to those 21 and under after 6PM without an adult). The theatre expanded to 24 screens with the opening of Downtown Disney West Side and got a second box office and entrance adjacent to the now defunct Virgin Megastore.

The theater is also getting a Fork & Screen “upgrade” (my guess is the original concession stand adjacent to Hyperon Wharf (a re-envisioning of Pleasure Island and open in 2013) will become McGuffins and the 5 right side theaters will become the Fork & Screen auditoriums). Perhaps other upgrades (as suggested by cgimovieman) will occur in the transition as AMC has opened a “Concession Stand of the future” (http://www.laughingplace.com/News-ID513430.asp) – which sounds similar but more extensive version of what Drive-Ins have and the “express” concession General Cinema tried and abandoned in their newer plexes a few years before AMC bought them. AMC is doing weird stuff lately.

I guess because Pleasure Island doesn’t really exist anymore. Used to be a fun place….
