I had heard from the grapevine that Galaxy Theatres no longer operate Narrows Plaza 8.

A quick Google search shows many listings for AMC Narrows Plaza 8, although the theatre does not show up on the AMC website. Maybe it'll be taking the theatre over tomorrow or next week.

Never a big fan of early 80’s AMC but visited it quite a bit in its busy early years as a teen. Lots of memories! 1983 was quite the screen expansion in Tacoma: SRO’s Tacoma West added 2 screens to its 3, SRO’s Tacoma South 5 opened, and AMC opened the Narrows Plaza 8. Nearby that year AMC also opened the Center Plaza 6 (renamed SeaTac 12 North) and Luxury Theatres opened the crap-tastic Puyallup 6.

Prior to 1983 the Tacoma area had only a handful of multiplexes: The SRO Tacoma Mall Twin and Tacoma West 3, the South Tacoma Village which had just expanded to 4 tiny screens and in Lakewood the GCC Villa Plaza I-II-III. Single Screeners were very common. In Tacoma: The Temple, Rialto, Roxy (Pantages), Narrows (not the AMC), Bijou (Blue Mouse). Also nearby single screeners: The Lakewood, The Parkland and Puyallup’s Liberty. Also – 3 drive-ins.

Times have changed!

AMC still has 2 theatres that were desinged much like the Narrows Plaza 8: They are the AMC Deptford 8 (Still the standard 1980's AMC), and the AMC Marlton 8 (with the new Recliner seating and the Coca Cola 100-drink machine)
