The Seville Theatre was on the CC Plaza but NOT just around the corner from the Plaza Theatre. The Plaza was at one end of the CC Plaza and Seville was at the opposite end, about 5 blocks apart. The Seville Theatre was in the basement of the Seville Square Building. Next to the theatre was a Longbranch Salloon. Originally the building was a Sears.

I believe the location of this theater is incorrect. If I recall, it was in the basement in the middle of the block east of Sears, between Woolworth’s and Milgram’s Supermarket. It was in the basement where the Plaza Bowling Alley had been. I saw the Exorcist there. It doesn’t seem like it was called the Seville, and Sears was still open. Sure looks like the concession stand.

“The Exorcist” played at the AMC Embassy 1 & 2, which was a basement theatre in the middle of the block.

I worked at Seville Cinema when it was brand new. I was among the original crew. This was in February of 1977. I was 17 years old. It was in the basement of the old Sears building which was converted into a multi-level shopping center, Seville Square. I met a boy who also worked there in 1977 who become my husband by 1983. We’re still married! Great photo! Brings back a lot of memories!

Opened by Mid-America Cinemas on Friday, February 1, 1977, with the original FREAKY FRIDAY, Robert De Niro in Elia Kazan’s film of THE LAST TYCOON, and a 1974 French production (with English subtitles), LA RIVALE aka MY HUSBAND, HIS MISTRESS AND I. It was specifically noted as being “in the former Sears building.”

Purchased by CCC Theatres later on and then Dickinson.

Quietly closed by Dickinson (after several AMC megaplexes had been opening in the area) on Thursday, January 15, 1998, with TOMORROW NEVER DIES, Robin Williams in Disney’s remake of FLUBBER, THE POSTMAN, SCREAM 2, and the voice of Meg Ryan in the animated ANASTASIA—and all in Dolby.
