This was originally a single screen theatre, opened on July 19, 1966 with Dick Van Dyke in “Lt. Robinson Crusoe U.S.N.” and was operated by RKO Stanley Warner. Upon RKO-Stanley Warner’s exit from the area it was operated by Cinemette. The theatre was big (1,300 seats on one floor) and was decorated with plush seats and a lot of gold draperies in the auditorium and was very upscale to fit in with the shopping center, as I recall.
When I was there it was fairly new, we saw “The Detective” with Frank Sinatra. Later, after Cinemette was running it they divided it into five screens.
Sometime in the last ten years it was demolished, and Carmike Cinemas built a 10-plex on the site.
