The Los Olas Riverfront is located in downtown Fort Lauderdale in the Los Olas Riverfront Entertainment, Dining and Shopping Center. The The Regal Cinemas 23 was opened June 18, 1998. Later renamed Los Olas Riverfront Cinemas, it was operated by Sunrise Cinemas until 2010, when Frank Theatres took over.

It featured 15 state of the art stadium style seating auditoriums. The Los Olas played great art, foreign and indepenedent as well as the latest blockbuster films. In 2011, four screens were closed, leaving eleven operating. In 2013, the Los Olas Cinemas was totally closed.

According to the Yelp reviews cinemas 1-4 are now closed off leaving 11 cinemas. I confirmed it by checking the showtimes and find only 11 cinemas in use.

Originally this theater was 23 screens. I am not sure why they could not make all 23 work. I know parking was always an issue.

Acording to the Frank Theater web site it lists only showings for 9 screens. It was changed to 11 when Frank’s took it over. Please correct information at the top showing 15 screens

Closed sometime toward the end of 2013, and any mention removed from the Frank Theaters Website.

The whole Las Olas Riverfront complex continues to struggle, and various redevelopment possibilities continue to be floated.

I was at the grand opening Rivest. What a shame it never took off.

Thanks, Rivest. But how did you get a pic posted on CT comments and not the photos section? And can those without Newspapers.com membership see it?

You can see the page. When I clipped the page, there was an option to embed the ad at newspapers.com.
