The Park Terrace was triplexed on December 10,1982 where the original auditorium was split in two sections making the seating capacity of 500 seats each in both auditoriums. The second auditorium(which opened in 1975)had a seating capacity of 600 and it was equipped with a 6 Track Dobly Stereo Sound system and was capable of showing films in 70mm. The second auditorium showed the 70mm presentations of “THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK”,“ALIEN”,“RETURN OF THE JEDI”, “INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM”,and “TOP GUN”

I have the original ad from the December 10,1982 edition of the Charlotte Observer.

Irwin Allen’s THE TOWERING INFERNO played here in 70MM at Charlotte’s Park Terrace on December 14,1974. It was the only theatre in the two Carolinas that presented this movie in 70MM and 6 Channel Stereophonic Sound.

Carmike Cinemas bought this theater from Cineplex Odeon in 1990 and later sold it to Consolidated Theaters (1994?)

Old Plitt employees go to REMEMBERING PLITT THEATRES on Facebook, it is there for you.

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF when it played as a roadshow engagement at Charlotte’s Park Terrace Theatre on March 24,1972 was the only showing of the film in the Carolinas. It was a Reserved Seat Engagement with advance tickets on sale before performances. Other cities didn’t get FIDDLER ON THE ROOF until late-1972 or early 1973,even though the film was originally released on November 3,1971.

Walt Disney’s MARY POPPINS played at the Park Terrace Theatre on January 22,1965 as its only Exclusive Engagement Showing in the Carolinas.It was one of the Reserved Seat Engagements in several theaters in the South.

Other cities wouldn’t get the film until April or June of 1965 as a general release in both the Carolinas.

From an old Charlotte Plitt Meno,Tim Mason sold $27,563 in reduced admission tickets,I sincerely hoped they shared a per centage like GCC did with their Managers.These tickets,for those of you that do not know were sold to businesses,Schools,hospitals for those employees to see a movie for about 50 cents off the Box office price.RATS as we called them.Wow,raysson you truly know CAROLINA theatres.

I saw TOP GUN here at the Park Terrace when it was a Plitt Theatre.
The lines the weekend it opened snaked around the corner.

Tim Mason was also the manager when RETURN OF THE JEDI played here during its run.

Steven Spielburg’s THE COLOR PURPLE was one of three theatres in North Carolina that was given the exclusive engagement showings when it opened on December 20,1985 at the Park Terrace Theatre(when it was a three-screen cinema…the movie was shown on its huge auditorium with full widescreen projection).

Other cities in North Carolina that got the exclusive engagement run were in these cities:
-Raleigh (Valley Twin)
-Greensboro (Janus)

…and is there a reason why the capsule will be opened on May 11th as opposed to the grand opening of May 28th

tbluemke on August 5, 2010 at 9:54 am

Does anyone have an idea of what is in the time capsule?! I have been going to this theater (my favorite of course!) for years and just noticed it this past weekend!

I never have liked REGAL Cinemas and I am A man of the PAST.Hell, I still my GCC coat. It fits.That red ABC coat really belonged to JIM Neely who was Assistant at THE IMPERIAL and NATIONAL HILLS when he quit he never gave the jacket back,just forgot and the theatre never asked about it. I found it much later and he,like Robin, gave it to me to keep.

O.K.Mike,still got your Red Jacket?

Mike Rogers

Well, If REGAL has it it’s lost all its ABC/PLITT Theatre glory. Dec.30 1983 sees Tim Mason manager. Another Great theatre man there was John Mackey,back in 70’s.

Triplexed in November 1982.

The Park Terrace in its original single-screen form was featured in Boxoffice of February 15, 1965. The Midcentury Modern design was by Six Associates, an architectural firm founded in Asheville in 1941.
