Meh. Usually by the time I come across an abandoned cinema anything worth looting is LONG gone. (Not that I would loot, mind you)

The abandoned ones are soo much better because if you can get inside, and not be me and paranoid about it... you can take so many better pictures without having to avoid the management's evil glare.

Hey... unless there are signs that say "No Trespassing" and "No Looting" then everything is fair game when the cops come! You just say that there was nothing informing you that you couldn't trespass and/or loot. With the politically correct world we live in, they'd have to buy that and let you continue! [Smile]

The Long Beach theatre down the street from the Pine Street 16 is a CINEMARK 14, not a Crown. It opens Friday, Nov. 14.

Here in Atlanta, there is a 16 at the Avondale Mall and a 12 in Northeast Atlanta, both were operated by O'Neil before bankruptcy.

I am sure AMC will not pull out of Long Beach. It will cause trouble for both the Pine Square 16 (being a few blocks south)and the Marina Pacifica 12 (only a few miles east) but I would assume they would split product between The Pike and The Pine.

Jesse Stanley has reported to me that the closed Regal 14 on the far east side of Columbus is reopening in December under the Marquee Cinemas banner. This just days after a Columbus Dispatch article on how unsafe this area is becoming!

This location is only about 1 mile from Marcus Pickerington, a very well run 16 plex that pulls in people from miles around. They will be very tough competition.

That will bring the Columbus screen count up to:

AMC - 72 screens in 3 locations
Marcus - 32 screens in 2 locations (+ 1 Imax)
Marquee - 14 screens in 1 location
Regal - 16 screens in 1 location
Faux Cinemark - 36 screens in 3 locations (1 subrun)
Some sub-run chain I can't remember - 8 screens in 1 location
Drexel Theatres (Local)- 12 screens in 3 locations
Studio 35 - 1 screen in 1 location

The 8 screen sub run is Cinema City I believe. It is owned by a gentlemen in Canada. It does very little business. AMC is i the planning stage of there new 14 plex they are gonna build next year at Polaris. Ohio State University also has plans to build a theatre on Campus in the future.

It's my understanding Cinema City has several Locations but thats about all I know. The Columbus location used to be a Super Saver location originally I believe. It does about 800-1000 on Saturdays and averages 2500-3000 customers a week sometimes more in the summer nowhere near enough business to make anything in subrun business.

The Pacific 10(now a church

Pacific Inland Center 5 (Wasnt this theatre torn down?)

Carousel 4(once an AMC as the Central City) - Aren't they going to tear down the mall soon and this be history as well?

AMC Commercecenter 6 - they converted this to a commercial building correct?

GCC Montclair Plaza 8(was a triplex until it expanded to another building behind the triplex in the '70s) - both torn down, sadly.

SRO Montclair Triplex(later a 5-plex in the hands of Pacific Theatres) - funny they built a housing track where this theatre was.
UA Movies 6 - has anything happened to this one?

Oh, and there will be more im sure of. We need to take pics of these before they are torn down!

Yes,The Inland Center is now a parking lot. They were gonna expand it,but those plans were scuttled.

The Commercecenter is an office.

Carousel Mall's future is still unclear.

Question for the St. Louis area folks: Is the Halls Ferry 14 still standing? If so, then that's the biggest abandoned multiplex (that I know of) in St. Louis.
