It reopened today with a strange mix what might be second run films, a French film, a Bollywood flick, and an indie. On the two 3-D screens is How to Train Your Draggon and Shrek Forever After. Perhaps this is a soft opening and things will pick up in the coming weeks with newer fare (there's no online ticketing as of yet).

The guy on the recording is great. About when he says "Marmaduke," you think he's going to break into a full rap of the showtimes. Sounds like night shows only right now.

If it's a Phoenix/Big Cinema then it's not surprising that it has the Bollywood pictures, that seems to be their thing.

Jeff -- photos are always welcome but after they're settled in there Phoenix is pretty nice to us I can get permission for photos eventually.

Sounds good Scott. I will at least get an exterior until we can get some interior later down the line.

As for the Bollywood connection:
While Phoenix Cinemas' management (former Regal executives) is based out of Knoxville, the primary money behind the company is Adlabs (an Indian company).

I wasn't impressed with their presentation at Columbia Park - I had gone to see a Bollywood film (Rocket Sigh: Salesman of the Year) and the subtitles had been out of frame. I kept thinking on the way down two flights of stairs to the concession stand to ask them to fix it - and two flights back up - - if this company isn't taking pride in how they show Bollywood films - then who is?

Per Movietickets.com general admission is: Adults $11, Children/Seniors $7.50 with a $3.50 upgrade to 3-D. With second run bookings and a few art films, I can't imagine how it's doing. I assume under prior ownership they were playing films on break or are they splitting product amongst other theaters?

Columbia Park does have a few problems with presentation.

Columbia Park is a difficult theatre to operate. In addition to a somewhat "challenging" customer base (they set one of the auditoriums on fire when Starplex ran the place), it's a management deal and the owner has his own agenda (which often contradicts normal operations).
